1 Card....3 Challenges....Friends









Hello everyone;
I can't believe how fast this week has gone by. I know we had a holiday on Monday...but come on...Friday already!!

I have been working on a card that I hope fits 3 challenges. The first one is "Timeless Tuesday #27" by Flourishes. Their challenge this week is to use some metal hardware on your card. The next challenge is "A Spoon Full of Sugar #63" and their challenge is "Floral Fantasy". The last one is "The Pink Elephant Challenge #26" and their challenge is a recipe.....3 brads, 1 flower and designer paper.
Whew...that was a lot to say...LOL!!


The fabulous image I have used is "Sweet Peas" by Flourishes.



I stamped the images with black Memento ink onto smooth water colour paper and embossed them with clear powder. I painted them with Tombows. This colour combo is one of my very favorites. I used part of the small sweet pea image for the sentiment and stamped "friends" with black and embossed it with clear onto a piece of acetate. I then cut and fit them into the metal frame. I used my Inkssentials pen for the highlights. I used my MS doily lace punch for the border. The designer paper is from the Paper Company. I added some waterfall stickles to the flowers.

I hope you like it
Thanks so much for stopping by....
