4 Challenge Card

Happy Sunday Everyone. I hope your weekend has been a good one. Today I want to share a card with you that qualifies for 4 challenges. The first one is Make It Monday 3. The Challenge was glitter strips with Score Tape. I am getting this one in just under the wire.
The second Challenge is from Carol in honor of her birthday. The challenge is to make a birthday card with a flower that has bright colors and to finish the inside.
The third challenge is Heather P's Totally Hue Challenge #2

This one was definitely a challenge for me because I do not like Ocean Tides. It is such a drab color to me. There is very little of it in this card but it is still there. Love the other colors though.
The fourth challenge is this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch.

This is what I came up with


I started by making the flower using patterned paper from the Raspberry Fizz Paper pack and this tutorial. Next I matted the flower on a SVG doily. The Aqua Mist piece was embossed. The glitter strips are on the top and bottom of the Raspberry Fizz Ribbon pieces. I used the Banner Border die for the triangles on the bottom. I stamped an image from Little Argyle on the Raspberry Fizz piece using Fresh Snow Ink. The Happy Birthday Sentiment from Fillable Frames #4 was stamped with Ocean tides Ink. An Ocean Tides Button and 3 tiny pearls finish it off.
That's it for now. I will be back with more to share soon.

Beautiful card!!! I love the embossing and there is just the right touch of ocean tides. Very nice!

Lovely card! I was just checking to see who had made cards for Carol and saw this. The layout and colors are so pretty! I have to say...I share your opinion of the Ocean Tides color. I guess you have to have the right colors with it--when I see it on Nichole's blog, I don't think a thing about it...But when I pull it out, I usually put it back un-used. It's almost like a nice neutral with the other colors you've used here, though. Love your handmade flower! I'm sure Carol will like it too!

What a gorgeous job you've done with this colour combo! Your balance is fantastic - nothing is overpowering and your focal details are still the main point! Kudos to you!
