4 Challenges Into One?

Combining 4 challenges can be rather tough but I am so excited with what came from this endeavor! The first challenge that this card was entered into was the House Mouse Monday Challenge. Their challenge was to use the colors of Neapolitan for inspiration. This means using strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate! Mmmmm I am really craving one of those yummy ice cream sandwiches right now!! As you can see I used those colors in my card using Chocolate cardstock as my card base with complimenting designer papers from the "Sonata" paper packet of Close To My Heart! I absolutely love this paper packet as it is full of musical themes! "One of my biggest passions!. The Vanilla or for CTMH "Buttercup" paper has a very slight musical note print and on the Chocolate accent pieces I stamped a musical words background from the "Elegant Notes" stamp set of Stampin" Up. The angel was stamped using Frost White Color Box Ink. I was very happy with how well it showed up on the Chocolate paper as you never know how it will turn out :) The next 2 challenges this card was entered into was the 2 RedBananas challenges. This challenge was a sketch challenge. The goal was to use this sketch

Because 2RedBananas is sponsoring the challenge for "Card Positioning Systems" CPS120Everyone can double dip and enter their cards into both challenges! The last challenge I entered was the Our Creatice Corner OCCC. Their challenge was to use a border punch! This was a little bit difficult as I do not yet have any border punches in my collection but I used a corner punch to create a scalloped edge! This card was so much fun! I even enjoyed coming up with a fun way to photograph the card using my clarinet as an easel!

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my card and that it might inspire you to get creative and join some of those fantastic challenges!
