Challenge-lover combo!

You know by now that I love to combine challenges! There are just so many great challenges and I want to do as many as possible, but with a busy work schedule, two kids in activities every night of the week and a hubby who has lots on the go too, I have to combine them to get them done. Here are the challenges I chose to combine for my card below: Our Creative Corner Challenge – Sentiments, Prairie Paper and Ink Sketch Challenge (AMYRS3), and the Three Clover Design Challenge #14 to use Black, White and 1 other color.

I used Gina K. 120 lb. card stock for my card base. This stuff is gorgeous. The card is so stiff. It is superior to any other card stock as a card base (and I love S-U card stock, but the Whisper White is not as good for a card base). I layered that with Basic Black. I stamped the “friends” flower from Hero Arts (Printed Flowers) in Black Stazon onto Whisper White and cut it out. I layered it on Riding Hood Red and cut that out too. I added a red & white check brad in the centre. I used the scallop punch on the other white layer and stamped the All Scallops flower on it. I used some black gingham ribbon and a few other brads to the card. I finished it off with a Rub-on sentiment from the Chit Chat package. This was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for having a look!
