Lots o' Challenges!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week... mine has been okay.

I made this card for several challenges....

#1 Mojo Monday Sketch
#2 Genie's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge
#3 Krystie Lee's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge

I love the new in colors and knew that I wanted to use them on today's card!

I made "faux" brads by punching a 1/2'' circle of Crushed Curry cardstock and put them under a clear epoxy circle sticker. I thought it turned out pretty good!

I feel like I never use the Tagger's Dozen set, so I thought I would whip that out too... it works well for this card I think. Crazy for Cupcakes is one of my all time favorite sets from Stampin' Up!

Card Details:
Paper: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Watercolor Paper, Razzleberry Lemonade DP

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes & Tagger's Dozen

Ink: Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: SU! Markers, Nestabilities by Spellbinders, 1/2'' Circle Punch, Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Ribbon, Small Tag Punch, Large Tag Punch, HPH Brad, Clear Epoxy Circle Stickers by Sticko

I hope you have a wonderful day!
