2 Cards // Each Inspired by 3 Challenges

 2 cards...

3 challenges inspired card #1...

Cupcake Inspirations // #CI561 ...A cupcake inspired challenge!!  Polk-a-dots...that is the inspiration from this cupcake photo, along with the red, black, and white color combo.

Global Design Project // #GDP378 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch works perfectly for showcasing an embossed background.  This "love" folder makes a great Valentine's Day card.

Festive Friday // #FF0126 ...An inspo list challenge!!  For this challenge we are given an inspo list of 10 words in honor of National Wear Red Day...from the 10 words on the list we are to use 3 as our inspiration.  The 3 words that I used on my card...Red (designer papers), Ribbon (red bakers twine), and Texture (embossing folder).

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Try Stampin On Tuesday // #TSOT590 ...A sketch challenge!!  With an optional twist...add some shine!!  I used sunbeams for my shine twist!!  I love all the layers called for in this sketch.  Sketches like this help me reduce the stash of designer paper snippets that I have!! 

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS46 ...A never used challenge!!  How about this new sunshine & water stencil I just got!!  Never used!!  Now that it has been broken in I am sure it will be close to the top of my stencils!!

TicTacToe Challenge // #tttc194 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row on this game board: enamel dots (on my sail boat), free (I picked a stencil as my freebie), and patterned paper (two different pieces).
