Lots of Fun Challenges

Wow there are so many awesome challenges out here in blogland!  I do like that I get emails letting me know what they are.

Let's start with the sketch from Paper Players #601.  Yea, I might have pushed it a tad, but it worked well for me and my card. - This WON HEADLINER!

I was inspired by the photo prompt over at Time Out Challenge #219, and I kept it "along the edge" [with a twist of the sea] for the AAA Card Challenge #220 (kind of where I might have pushed the sketch for Paper Players)

I also added this over at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge; anything goes.

     

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I went on to join in a few more challenges starting with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #546 and used the colors from Color Throwdown #703.

Rather then using paper circle die cuts, I went with a circle stencil. I do like the way it looks.  My butterfly is an older Spellbinders die.

This sentiment works for many situations, so into my stash it goes [for when I need it].

Thanks Challenges!  I had a great time 😀
