Monday Challenges

Morning All,

We just had a some thunderstorms here with very heavy rain. I'm really not a fan of storms, in fact I hate them! I hope it is drier and quieter where you are!

Now that it's finally quiet here I was able to get to the computer to share the card I made yesterday using some of the Monday challenges and a weekend one too.

I found this sketch along with the color combo over at Cupcake Craft. The Pink Elephant was also a color challenge, which just happened to be very similar to Cupcake's. I used the Parisian Breeze papers from SU! with some Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze cardstock. All of the edges have been distressed. I'm really liking distressed edges lately!

The image is a Tilda colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen. I cut her out and sat her in the oval frame and stamped a "wish" sentiment about her to fit the challenge of "birthday" at Stamp with Fun. I embellished this card with Prima flowers and a paper rose to fit the challenges at Cute Daisy May and One Stop Craft. I finished this card with some taffeta ribbon, brads, and buttons.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a great day! Time for me to run some errands now that I can see out the window! Happy stamping! :)
