Another Triple Challenge in 1
Good Morning and Happy Friday!! To those of you who asked - thank you my cold is much better. I take so many vitamins and then Cold Ease as soon as symptoms appear I don't usually get really down, just kind of slow and edgy. Anyway, enough of that. Once again (due to time of course) I have attempted to do 3 challenges in one card. This card is for our SCS Blog Challenge #2 hosted by Tiffany. She asked us to use 4 different patterned papers - now this is a challenge for me - I always have such a hard time putting together patterns that I like. However this time, I used FA La La by Making Memories - they are double sided and of course coordinated, so it was a no-brainer. I almost feel like I'm cheating - LOL.
I used the layout from the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 202 - It seemed perfect for using 4 patterns of paper.
For the Crafty Secrets Challenge from Forums on Splitcoast, Darlene said to use punches. I used Martha Stewart's doily punch and the snowflake punch from EK Success. The image is also Crafty Secrets from the Vintage Christmas set. This is a great group and if you haven't tried this challenge yet, please give it a try - it's a lot of fun
Put it all together and that's 3 challenges in one - I love it when it all works out like that.
CS - Cream for card base by American Paper Co.
DP - All (including the back green panel) are from FaLaLa by Making Memories
Ink - Coffee Bean Brilliance by Tsukineko, and Cocoa by Colorbox
Accents - Jewels by Me and My Big Ideas, Ribbon from Michael's,
Tools etc. - Snowflake punch from EK Success, Doily punch by Martha Stewart from Michael's, dimensionals
That's it for today - I'm trying to work on the House Mouse challenge and hope to get it posted later today or tomorrow.
Have a great day and try to spend at least some time doing what you love. Take Care.
