This card was created for the Less Is More Challenge. The challenge this week was to create a card using both a solid image and an outlined image. Stampin Up's Penned and Painted seemed like the perfect set for pulling this off.

One simple sketch challenge inspired today's card. I am playing along with the sketch challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches team. Stampin Up's Rose Wonder seemed like perfect for this sketch.
#bethegift challenge: Be still and pray for someone today...let them know you carried them to Jesus today!!
Three challenges for today's card....the color challenge from the Paper Craft Crew, the "shaker" challenge from Cardz 4 Guyz, and the photo challenge from the Time Out team. I love this #Hello stamp set from Stampin Up....it didn't stay around long but it remains on my shelf and gets used from time to time...great set for making birthday cards for all my nephews (we have a lot of them)!!

Inspiration for today's card came from the color challenge from the Color Throwdown team & the sketch challenge from the Global Design Project team. Both the sketch and the color combo sang out a celebration....so a birthday card was created. Thank guys for inspiring me!! While all the products (designer papers, die, stamps) I used to make this card are from Stampin Up, sadly they have been retired!! I however just can't part with them!!
#bethegift challenge: Tell someone they are looking good and give them a smile some thumbs up!!

Layers...By Tessa Huff
That is the current challenge from The Library Challenge. Our challenge is to create a card that is inspired by the cover, the title, or the story. So...what kind of card do you make for this book...one that says Happy Birthday with a big ole layered cake, of course!! This was a fun challenge and I loved layering up this cake with lots of cherries!!
Today, I am playing along with the sketch challenge from the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I also am playing along with the Sunday Stamps color/photo challenge. The colors and the theme from the Sunday Stamps challenge helps me decided on pulling the Stampin Up's Sailing Home bundle off the shelf.
#bethegift challenge: Tell a person who does "hidden" work why they matter today...those 2 minutes could change their life.

Nothing like waiting until the last day!!! I got all out of schedule while my daughter and son-in-law were here for a week...almost missed out on this fun challenge. Anyway...here is my take on The Twofer Challenge to make a card using bubbles & circles. I am using the "bubbles" from Seaside Notes and the single circle stamp from Lily Pad Lake. I also used the "sea grass" die from the Sailing Home bundle. All three of these sets are from Stampin Up.
#bethegift challenge: Send a note of kindness to someone today that thinks vastly different than you. Love "the other"!!

YELLOW!! That is the challenge from the INKspirational team. I right away thought of my Honey Bee bundle from Stampin Up. While putting my thoughts together, I noticed that the smallest bee in the set would work perfect for the sketch challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments. And there you have it...two challenges inspired today's card.
#bethegift challenge: Share a book with someone today. Gift a book or send someone a good quote from a book.

I am using Stampin Up's By the Dock bundle along with the sentiment from the Guy Greeting set.
