Fantastic Challenges

Hi, how was your weekend?  Too short ?  I agree !


Just wanted to share with you a card I created with a couple of different challenges in mind:


1. Color Throwdown Challenge # 189 – An interesting mix of colours,  Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, So Saffron, Pool Party and Calypso Coral – you can visit the site here. Yes definitely a challenge.


2. Pixie Cottage Challenge # 118 – Use the Sketch to make a card for Mum or a special Lady, have a look here.  I love layers so this definitely appealed to me and I can never have enough cards to give my Mum.


3. The Paper Players Challenge # 93 – Tic Tac Toe, you have a look at the challenge here.  I have used Designer Paper, Flowers and My Choice which is ‘bling’.  Love my ‘bling’!


I decided to use Night of Navy for the base of the card, some DSP from the Timeless Portrait pack and First Edition Specialty Paper. I added a little Calypso Coral ink to the First Edition DSP with a dauber.


The image is from the Fabulous Florets stamp set and the sentiment is from the Perfect Words stamp set.  The ribbon was a last minute addition but I am happy with it.


Here is my card…..





Stamp set: Fabulous Florets (Summer Mini), Perfect Words

Card: Night of Navy, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler

Accessories:  So Saffron Ribbon (retired), daubers, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



Have  a wonderful week and I hope to see you again soon….. Meg
