Triple Treat Challenge

Monday, May 21, 2012

I seem to be getting better at combining three challenges because I find myself doing it more often lately.  Tonight I made a card combining the color challenge at Create With Connie and Mary with the sketch challenge at retro sketches and the CAS polka-dot challenge at The Paper Players.



The stamped image is, of course, one of my favorites from Raining Flowers.  Instead of leaves I highlighted the layered flower with a flourish from Sizzix called Scribbles Swirls (which, incidentally, makes some excellent reindeer antlers)!  I added some Basic Black grosgrain ribbon layered with some Pool Party ribbon and a Basic Black button.  

This is a great color combo and I'm so glad that Connie and Mary have been giving us some color challenges that encourage us use up some of our retiring color stash.  Poppy Parade is a lovely color and though I probably didn't use it as much as I should, I think I might miss it a little.  {Sniff}

This is a late post for me as I usually schedule them ahead of time for the morning, but I wanted to get this one in for the color challenge before it expired.  I hope you'll come back and visit on Tuesday where I've got a very cool color combo to show you for the latest colourQ challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
