I think I caught the "Challenge Fever"!




Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope that you had a beautiful weekend and that you are adjusting to the time adjustment. I had a nice weekend and happened to catch up on a few things but still behind on my blogging duties, lately it seems that I can't manage my time effectively and it irks me to no end! I am so jealous of the women that can make cards daily and keep up with the different blogs, what is your secret?!

Getting back to my card, I made this card for several challenges and I think I managed to capture the specifications of the various challenge blogs.



I made my card based on Friday Sketchers sketch and incorporated spring colors, flowers, buttons, celebration of spring, Easter colors and the color green all onto one card. Whew!!! My image is one of the new Sweet Pea Stamps designed by Elaine Cox and her name is Celestial Garden Fairy. Other ingredients.....card stocks Papertrey Ink and Making Memories (embossed yellow), Copic Markers, flowers, ribbon, half pearls and buttons. I also used EK's Success border punch, Stickles, Liquid Glass, Liquid Pearls. Sentiment by SU.
