Sarah Kay and some Challenges

Hello!

Hope your day is going well. I'm keeping myself busy waiting to hear what's wrong with my car. Had to take it in last night for a rubbing under the floor, very strange. Here's hoping it doesn't cost a million bucks to fix! Now on to happy things...

I was out blog hopping earlier and came across some new challenges. So, I decided to see if I could combine a few and make a card to share. I started with the sketch over at Sketch and Stash and then used the recipe challenge on Cute Card Thursday and finally the ABC Challenge which this week is F for Flowers. The sketch was an easy one to use, I see myself using it again too. And the CCT recipe challenge was to rip paper, use 2 papers, and only 4 embellishments one of which I made a flower so I could enter the ABC challenge too.

I used this pretty Sarah Kay image that Erin shared with me, thanks Erin! She's been colored with Copics. The papers are new Marrakech by BasicGrey, now available at Whimsy Stamps! The cardstock is SU! So Saffron and Night of Navy. Now I only used 1 printed paper, but did use 2 colored pieces of cardstock. Not sure if this meets those 2 papers recipe requirement. The image piece has been torn and sponged around the edges. The final touches are a piece of ribbon, a flower and button, and a piece of HPH to frame the sentiment which is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to make my daughter some lunch and then I have a parent teacher conference for my son. So a busy afternoon! Enjoy the rest of your day. Happy Stamping!! :)
