3 in 1 Challenges

I have been very time short this week so I am making one card for a couple of challenges, something I rarely ever do as I simply love making cards and usually do them all individually.  However, I am back at work now so am coming home really tired but I will get back to normal soon.  So the challenges are Colour Q and Freshly Made Sketches.  I then remembered about MFT Summer School so considered how I could throw in another lesson too.

When I first saw this colour challenge over at Colour Q this week I thought was 'no way' I was going to be able to do this as the colours are so far off my normal spectrum palate but I think I did a pretty good job.

The colour combo for the weekly challenge was Early Espresso, which I used in the sentiment, Pumpkin Pie, which I used on the My Favorite Things Pinstripe stamp at the far edge, Rich Razzleberry with the heart and Taken With Teal, which I substituted for Island Indigo where I used Cheesecloth stamp from MFT also.  The Island Indigo looks more navy on this photo but it is quite a good teal replacement in real life.  The other orange is Distress Ink Dried Marigold where I used with the Sweater Stitch stamp from MFT.


Meanwhile at Freshly Made Skches the challenge was this design.

So I flipped it round to make my card.  I could have followed the design in its entirety but where's the fun in that lol.

Lastly, over at My Favorite Things Summer School Symmetrical and Asymmetrical was a lesson and I had already submitted a symmetrical card, so another challenge for me was to do an asymmetrical card.  I think I managed it.

I used the flag from the Die-namics Blueprints 18 set and added rhinestones to embellish.

So great fun meeting 3 challenges in 1 I hope you think I met them too.
