Stampin for the Weekend blog challenge




Well I was pressed for time today since it's Father's Day, so I only had a chance to make one card today but I had 4 challenges that I wanted to do and I know it's kind of bad to combine challenges but this is the first time I have done it, so I don't feel too bad about it.

Here are the 4 challenges I made this card for:

The CCC challenge was to make your own background patterned paper and to have some stitching on the card, it can be faux stitching, which is what I chose since I can't sew. I have the stitching around the sentiment.   I made my background paper using a butterfly and flower stamp using 2 different shades of pink.  And of course you have to use a critter cause it is called the cute critter club.  I used butterflies and the huggabug has wings, so she counts.

The Addicted 2 bellas group on cafemom's challenge was to make a monochromatic card (different shades of the same color), I chose pink, and of course to use a stamp from stamping bella, I don't know this little huggabug's name because the image was rak'd to me.

The stampin for the Weekend Blog Challenge was to make a card by using a song title as inspiration, they had 3 songs listed, and I chose "A Whiter Shad of Pale",  so everything on my card is pale pink.

And for the 4th and final challenge is for a sketch challenge over on stamper's anonymous on cafemom.  A picture of the sketch is included.

Whew! that's a lot of challenges for one little card.
