Happy Birthday


Happy Wednesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made trying to use three different challenges. 

First up is the SIP Challenge  
which is a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge:

Also my interpretation of the Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week:
 and finally this week at Just Us Girls Challenge:






I generally don't combine that many at once but it all seemed to come together for my card.



My flower comes from he retired set called You've Got This.
 I stamped it with versmark ink onto some Confetti Cream card sock and heat set it with white embossing powder.
I colored using my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi inks. 
I fussy cut it out and then put it aside to do the rest of the card.

I die cut a heart with Soft Sky card stock to use, this would represent the  rounded square in the sketch shown above, hence my statement of "my interpretation" of the sketch.
I think it works tho, you can still see the "bones" of the sketch.

The base of the card is Confetti card stock and then a layer of Calypso Coral and then more confetti, I embossed that piece using the basket weave EF.

The Heart is then mounted using dimensionals as is the flower.
I added a small piece of black and white DSP across the middle and the sentiment is from he Lift Me Up stamp set. I fussy cut it out and added it to the card with more dimensionals.


I finished the card with a few rhinestones and a twine bow. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
