3 Challenges = 1 card

This CAS card covers One Layer Wednesday 50- use an old stamp, PTI's Make It Monday 11 - emboss with a die cut, and Less is More 12- off centered.  I love it when a card as easy as this covers all these challenges!  My images are PTI Polka Dots Basics, along with Mark's Finest Papers Tweet Blessings.  I just love this bird.  I spritzed water on the dots for a lighter look - if you look close, you can tell.
Just kind of hanging out and playing with my stamps today.  The weather here isn't great, so it makes for a good stamping day. 



Edited:
I am popping this other card in here too.  (Problem with hops -- they do tie up a blog :).  Hopefully, when this sends out today you will get this one also!  Perusing blogland today, I came across The Little Red Wagon challenge- use clouds.  I thought clouds were the perfect card to make today, since it is cloudy in Arizona.  I used PTI Butterfly Dreams, along with the die cut to complement this set.
 Thanks for stopping by!
