Cupcake Craft, Pink Elephant, Pollycraft, Crafty Creations, Simon's Stamps and Penny's Challenges



Yes, another post on the same day - well I had to make up for not doing anything yesterday.
The sketch for this card is from Cupcake Craft Challenges which is shown below. This challenge also includes some colours - Turqouise and Brown.
These are colours I would not normally use but like, so again I am being taken out of my comfort zone. The same colours are in the challenge at The Pink Elephant so I am entering this challenge too.
My card includes three buttons and a bow which means it satisfies the challenges at Pollycraft Challenge Blog, Penny's Challenge, Crafty Creations and Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
The cat image is from Clear Magic Lazy Days set along with the words at the top. The papers are from Funky Hand CD Rom "Now That's Funky". Plus also some pearl brown card, buttons and a bow from my stash. The oval shape is from the Sugar Birdies CD rom (which you can buy here) with some blue chalk over it to make it blend in better.
I think that just about covers it, all comments gratefully received as ever.
