How Do You Score?

Not in sports, because you've got me beat there!  I mean, how do you score your paper crafts?  I have a ScorPal and a Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool, and I find uses for both, although I'm leaning more and more on my Ultimate Tool lately.
I used it tonight, in between serving a bazillion people at my Cafe in Cafe World on FAcebook--what an addicting game!
Anyway, Hambo Challenge Blog is asking for projects that have been scored as this week's challenge.  I wanted more than a straight line pattern to my card, so I pulled out my Ultimate Tool and scored some pretty borders on the face of my card, using Color Core-dinations cardstock.  Then I sanded the score lines for a distressed look. 
I colored Hambo Stamps "Octopus" (after snagging it on clearance, woohoo) with Copics, then cut it out with my Epic Six using QuicKutz Nestibilities Scallop Ovals in two sizes so I could frame my image.  I handwrote the sentiment, and added some Skittles and a flower.  I put this card front onto a piece of lilac cardstock and distressed the edges with ink to finish it off.
you can use ANY Hambo image and play along! Just follow the Challenge and you will be in the loop for next week's FREE digi! Don't have any Hambo images? CLICK HERE for FREEBIES!
