A Trifecta of Challenges!!!
Happy Friday Everyone! I have always envied the stampers that can put a few different challenges together to create one card, and now I've finally been able to do this myself! Little things make me so happy...lol! Here's the rundown...On Tuesday, the challenge from A Spoonfull of Sugar was this wonderful sketch. Then on Wednesday, Denise over at Storage Units, Ink & More issued the challenge to make one of your cards sparkle. Here is another card for that challenge. Remember, you can still play the Whachadoin' Wednesday Challenges even if you don't use SU Ink stamps. Today is Friday, and you know what that means...Blogger's Challenge!! Our challenge this week is to use Stampin' Up's Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, More Mustard, and Ruby Red. I used my watercolor crayons in these colors to color up my sweet monkey friend from Stampendous. I curved the sentiment that came with this Stampendous set to fit just above Monkey. The birthday sentiment in white craft ink is from Stampin' Up's Small Sayings (retired). The Ruby Red panel was put through my 'bug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and the More Mustard panel is stamped with a stamp that I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot. I added some Star Dust Stickles to Monkey's birthday cake, a bit of faux stitching, and a button with some May Arts Sheer Polka Dot ribbon. There you have it...my first time combining three challenges for one card! You can click on any of the links above to be inspired by these wonderful challenges. I hope that you'll be able to play along too! Thanks so much for stopping by today...Toodles!!! :D
