Happy Fun Friday Stamp TV Friends!!!!
This time around it's a  Free For All Friday Recipe Challenge!!  What's a Recipe Challenge??  Well...I give you a "recipe" and you have to follow along!!  Remember you have to follow the recipe carefully or you just might have to start over!!  LOL

The recipe today is:

2 Embellishments
3 Images
4 Colors (of paper and/or dp)
5+ layers (minimum of 5 layers but can be more)

Here is my sample card:

My 2 embellishments give you some creative ideas.....I took one large bling piece and cut it in two....but it's still one embellie! LOL  And the Jute is my second embellie.  The 3 images I used are the lighthouse, the pelican and the bird silhouettes.  I used more than 5 surprise there, eh??  Heehee!  The tricky thing is you are limited to 4 colors of your cardstock and dp....the only exception is white, but other neutrals count as colors!!  You can use more colors in your actual image with ink when stamping and/or coloring though!  See?  Aren't I nice??  LOL  I used Theresa's new By The Sea and made a masculine card.....I don't make many of those and I still use bling!  Haha!

Please have your project uploaded to the gallery here at StampTV using keyword STVFRILM1 by 8:00 PM central time, Thursday June 16th.

Please create and upload a new project for this challenge that can only be entered into this challenge here on StampTV to be eligible for a prize, no combining of Stamp TV challenges.  However, you can combine it with challenges outside of StampTV.  And remember you don't have to use Gina K. Designs stamps, but if you do your name will go into the drawing twice!  The random winner gets a stamp set of choice up to $24.95.

Please feel free to ask any questions in this thread and I'll pop in and keep an eye out!  I can't wait to see all the fabulous creations!!!

Oh my goodness this is going to be hard :-) Can't wait to start figuring this out!
Great card!!  Love all the layers
This is one fabulous Guy card! :) okay printed out the sample and the recipe and will see what happens...
leeeeeee!!!  whine!
Great card, Lee!  Hope I'm up to the Challenge this week!
Your card is beautiful, Lee!! This is quite a tough challenge for me, 5 layers!! Gosh I hardly have more than 3 layers usually. But, I'm up for this. Gotta get to work this weekend ;)
Lee, this looks like fun.  Have all day Sunday to figure it out.  Thanks for coming up with something different.

It's a good thing you showed an example 'cuz otherwise I'd consider this impossible!


Oh I promise once you get stampin' and picking out colors it won't be too tough!! =)

This is a little more tough and a question. Does the saying used count as an image too? If it did then you would be using four images to my caluculation. But tell me...I hope...that a sentiment saying is a freebie and won't count. Please!

Another question. If your designer paper has more than four colors, then you are not allowed to use it?  I picked out a dotted pattern paper and I see it has more colors than four.
Yep...the sentiment is not an image. And this is just a touch challenging since you do have to make sure your dp only has the 4 colors....5 if it has white. But you can use any amount of colors for your actual image coloring!! LOL
