Every Had One of THOSE Cards?

Ok, so this was one of those cards that I just didn't like anything about... I just finally threw it together... haha! Now that it is finished, it's growing on me.

First off, let's start with the fact that I stamped the main image like 3 times before I was happy with it. I colored it with a blender pen and my Stampin' Pastels... that was a new technique for me. It took a while to get used to, but I do like the results.

This is for a slew of challenges...

#1 - Charisma Cardz to use pink on your project.

#2 - AI Factory Challenge to use a flower as your image.

#3 - AUD Sentiments Challenge to NOT put a sentiment on your card.

#4 - Create with Connie & Mary to use Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Old Olive, & So Saffron. I promise I used Real Red in the coloring of the big flower... it just turned out looking pink for some reason!

#5 - Digi Doodle Shop's Best to use scraps... my whole card is made of scraps!

#6 - The Our Creative Corner sketch.

#7 - StampInsanity to use bling and ribbon.

#8 - Splitcoast Stamper's Ways to Use It Challenge to use CHALK!

Whew... that was a lot of challenges! Thanks for stopping by! I will be MIA for the next few days as my dance studio travels out of town for a dance competition! I hope you have a great weekend and beginning of the week... I should be back on Tuesday or Wednesday!!!
