2 Cards // Each Inspired By Multiple Challenges


Card #1 inspired by 3 challenges...

Time Out Challenge // #TOC244 ...A theme challenge!! MONOCHROMATIC is the theme for this challenge!!  Coastal Cabana ink, designer papers, and embellishment.

Global Design Project // #GDP406 ...A sketch challenge!!  This sketch was perfect for creating a scene...loved the open rectangle as the focal point.  So many possibilities!!

TicTacToe Challenges // #tttc221 ...A game board challenge!!  My winning three in a row on this game board: stencil, blue, stripes.  A winning combination for sure!!

How exciting!!  This card was chosen by the Global Design Project team as a "top 3" winner!!  And...this card was a random winner over at the Time Out challenge blog!! merchandise!!

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC537 ...A sketch challenge!!  The quilted look of this background gives so many possibilities!!  I decided to use Stampin Up's Watercolor Shapes along with some cut scraps of designer papers for my backdrop.  The mixture of these two give the background alot of character.

As You See It Challenge // #AYSI305 ...A recipe challenge!!  The ingredients for this current recipe are "Thank You" sentiment, Patterned Paper, Enamel Dots, Die Cuts, and Shades of Yellow!  That recipe is sure to produce some yummy cards!!

Colorful Options // #AUG2023 ...A color challenge!!  Yellow-Green!!  This color challenge calls for lemons...wouldn't you agree?!!?

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS420 ...An inspiration challenge!!  Yellow, green, and lemons...all the inspiration I need for another great thank you card!!
