Another Few Challenges


 
Today I was able to play in a few challenges, all with this one card!  I don't do that very often, but it is fun to see what I can accomplish. As usual, I started with a sketch (as I do with most of my cards), today is from Card Pattern #111.

A great CAS sketch to show off my self made flowers (MFT die cuts) and sentiment from (outside of card) JustRite #053.  I have had this stamp set [Sympathy Nested Sentiments] for about a year.  Unfortunately, I didn't have the stamper to hold the stamps.  Well, I am happy to say I got them in yesterday (2 in a package), so this is the first time I was able to play in a JustRite challenge, let alone use this set!  My fingers are crossed I win - Spellbinders is sponsoring and the prize just happens to be dies that I DO NOT have~~  Can't have too many die cuts :)  My color choice is from Just Us Girls #80; kraft, black, aqua and coral, with a twist of a birthday card (sentiment Gina K Designs Inside & Out).  Quite a nice mixture I think.

That's it.  Not 25-30 challenges (like some stampers out there can do), but ones I don't get to play in very often.  I had fun and I really like the end result of my card!  Oh yeah, I am also going to upload this into SCS Dirty Dozen Challenge -- use die cuts.  If you are a member of SCS you can play in the challenges, plus you get to see BEAUTIFUL cards made by the Dirty Dozen in the special DD gallery!  Aren't a member?
