Challenge,Challenge, Challenge


When I got up this morning I decided I wanted to do something different. So I went to the Daily Dare site and chose three challenges to participate in. 2Sketches4You, 365 Cards, and Color Chef challenge #52. Whew did I know what I was getting into??? Not!!!
First of the sketch is not one of my favorite things to do but I need to get out of my comfort zone and this was really way out of it, but it is a great sketch to follow, then the colors are black, yellow, turquoise and red. Let me tell you my search for turquoise was a real hunt. I had one DP picked out (Atomic Turquoise) but it was too busy and just wouldn't work. My husband found this polka dot paper from Doodlebug Designs called Swimming Pool Swiss Dots, then I used Canson Blush for my yellow and Bazzill Basics Red Swiss Dots. I was all set when I found the Imaginisce Twitterpated Hey Foxy paper to complete my card for the 365 Days challenge which is to use Flora and Fauna until I remembered they had to be from different sources. So I rummaged through my embellishment stash and found this Flower Ribbon brad from Spare Parts. I added the ribbon and sentiment and a little stick on bug from the miscellaneous drawer and put it all on a black card base.

Cute card :-) Way to combine challenges!!

FYI, there was a page error when I clicked on your link on the 2S4Y blog. I'd hate to think someone might miss out on seeing this if they didn't know how to get around that error page! Just thought I'd let you know in case you wanted to repost your link :-)
