Today we're focusing on Challenges! I have cards in 3 fabulous challenges to show you, and I encourage you to play in them all!! 

First, we have the Designer's Choice Challenge on the House That Stamps Built blog and Joy is the next designer up and her challenge was to make a card using something that is leftover from another project. I had started a card and used Spellbinders Edgeabilities on a piece of glitter paper, but that card seemed to go into another direction, so I put that piece aside. I pulled it out for the background for my card for this challenge, and am quite pleased how it turned out. My stamps are "912-K, Tulip Bouquet" and "8622-D, Because" from Repeat Impressions. The dies I used in this card are Nested Oval Medallion Labels by JustRite Stamps, and Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Triple Scallop. The image was colored with Copic markers and my silk ribbon is from May Arts and Stamp Simply.

 The second challenge is from 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog and our challenge was to make a Monochomatic card! I love CC Design images (carried in the 7 kids store) and I just had to use Swiss Pixies Nora for my card. My sentiment is from Winter Words - Clear by JustRite Stamps. A satin bow and sweet snowflake buttons finished this card!

And the last challenge is the Belli Challenge, where there is a recipe to follow: 1 ribbon, 2 designer papers, 3 colors and 4 rhinestones/pearls must be on your card or project. My designer papers are from the s.e.i. Promise me stack and my sentiment is from Sweet n' Sassy Stamps.
