Many Challenges....

Afternoon!

Hope you're day is going well. It's been beautiful here and I've been gardening with my daughter, but now we're back inside having lunch. I had some time earlier today to make a card for some challenges and wanted to make a quick post to share. I'm hoping to head back outside later and continue the gardening.

I created this card using the challenges at ABC Challenge, Whiff of Joy, Cupcake Craft, Papertake Weekly and Color Throwdown. The challenges were Q for Quilt over at ABC, use charms at WOJ, use fairies for Cupcake, a sketch at PTW, and lastly the colors of green galore, pink passion, and chocolate chip at Throwdown.

I used this beautiful angel image from Whiff of Joy which I received from my friend Marcea. She's been colored with Copics. The challenge at Cupcake was fairies and I think this image comes close, she does have wings! The papers are all BasicGrey with some SU! card stock. The colors aren't exactly those from the Throwdown because I wanted to create a softer look. The accents are stitching to qualify for the quilting at ABC and then some ribbons, flower embellishments and hodgepodge hardware with the final accent of a Thank You charm to fit WOJ.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm off to the backyard. Enjoy your afternoon! Happy stamping! :)
