This is a card I made that fulfills three challenges. I used the color challenge from Picture Perfect Creations. Their colors were cajun craze, baja breeze, rich razzleberry, and regal rose. I would never have chosen these colors together, but I really like how they work. It was definitely a fun challenge to put these colors together in a way I liked. I used Mojo Monday's sketch challenge for the layout of my card. I really liked this sketch and thought there were so many options for it. My theme came from Paper Playtime. Their challenge this week was "Flower Power," you could take that however you wanted: hippies, 60's, gardens, bouquets, etc. I decided to literally go with flowers, a lot of them. My background paper is stamped with Tsukineko Memento Bahama Blue ink with a Hero Arts stamp called Heart Flower Border. I used George and Basic Shapes to cut the circles and squares. The large blue circle is embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Stylized Flowers folder. I used Sweet Treats to cut out the other flowers. The two flowers in the sqares are cut at 1 1/2" and the middle flower is cut at 2 1/4." I cut the "Thanks" at 1" using Gypsy Wanderings. I then added some pink pearls and grape Stickles. I wasn't sure on this one as I was putting it all together, but I really like how it all turned out in the end.
