One Card-Three Challenges??!!!!!





Good Monday Morning Peeps!!! It is finally beginning to warm up a bit here. The snow and ice are melting and hopefully no more bad winter weather in the near future.

Today I am sharing a card I made with three challenges in mind. I have never really combined that many challenges in one card, but this one seemed to come together that way.

First up I used the sketch from the Mojo Monday Blog. I combined the sketch with the color challenge on Stacey's Stamping Stage and on a side note I was so honored to see that I was Curtain Call Color Challenge Show Stopper! with this card. I got a cool award to post on my blog, Thanks so much Stacey! Ok, back to this card, the third challenge for this card is from Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, this week's challenge, to create a Birthday card or project.

Got them all covered with this card I think!! The colors challenge is for chocolate chip, rose red, pretty in pink and very vanilla. I used chocolate chip for my base and then followed that with some rose red card stock and again the DS paper is from the retired Candy Lane pack. The red in that pack is actually riding hood red, but the pieces of DS paper I used didn't have alot of it and I think it goes with my rose red fairly well.

The stamps I used are from the "Friends 24-7" set and also the "On your Birthday" set. I stamped the damask in the BG with pretty in pink ink and added the sentiment over it with rose red ink. I added some very vanilla satin ribbon and the flower is cut with the "Flower Blossom" sizzix die. I added a jumbo vanilla brad to the center and added it to my card with some dimensionals. I then used the sizzlits little leaves in chocolate chip to added a few leaves around the blossom.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and remember tomorrow it is time for one of "Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge"

HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Your are the best, I don't think I've ever seen one of your cards that I didn't LOVE!!! This one is no exception, from the leaves and big brad embellishing the flower to the damask image under the sentiment, every detail is exquisite.
