Viva Las VSN March Mini

I hope you had a chance to play in the VSN March Mini. If you didn't have time to do the challenges, don't stress because there will be another Mini in April and the main event will be on May 15th and 16th.
For the March Mini the six "Pit Bosses" took you on a tour of some of the most fabulous hotels in Las Vegas. Unfortunately since I had a busy week, I only got to visit three of the hotels. But I had a great time.
First up is the Circus Circus hotel. The challenge was to make a card inspired by the circus and to use ORANGE on your card.

Stamps: My Favorite Things: It's a Jungle Out There
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss, Hawaii Papaya DSP
Ink: Brown Stazon, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, So Saffron

The next hotel on our weekend trip is the Bellagio. This challenge was to use a transparency and flowers on your card (like the beautiful ceiling of the Bellagio). What a fun time!

Stamps: Unity Something Within and Just Circles
Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz
Ink: Black Stazon, Raspberry Fizz
Accessories, Nestabilities, Ribbon

The next and last hotel on MY trip is The Venetian. With it's beautiful marble floors and the gondolas floating down the man-made canals the Venetian is the ultimate in luxury. This challenge was to use the colors found in the lobby of the famous hotel: Yellow/Gold, Burgundy, Blue, White/Cream. Here is the card I made for that challenge- I think it fits the Italian feel of the hotel.
Stamps: Unity Teatime Toile, Beauty Within
Paper: So Saffron, Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy, PTI White
Ink: So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Navy Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to catch more VSN action next month and make room on your calendars to play along!
