Stamp Something, Cute Daisy May, Lots To Do and Paperplay Challenges.



Warning please read the whole blog rules otherwise you may make a mistake!!!!! Well, I did!!!
At Peachy Keen you can only enter their challenge, no combining so although I used their sketch I will not be entering it because I fit the card around the other challenges - I will hopefully learn from my mistake!!
The sketch I used is here and pretty simple.

I originally chose to do the challenge at Cute Daisy May some time ago because I love pink. You could add any other colour so I chose black because I think it is quite striking. I then decided to try the no patterned paper challenge at Paperplay Challenges. I chose various shades and textures which unfortunately do not show up well in the picture. The square and rectangle at the top are pearlised paper and at the bottom I used glitter card. The scallop circle was done on black card sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle - silver.
Then Stamp Something have asked you to use your favourite embellishment. I love flowers and these are from Just Pots Funky Flowers, and I have put two together to give some height.

The image is one of Soft Pencils, it was a freebie which you can pick up from her blog, and is absolutely gorgeous. I coloured it using my C'Aran D'Ache watercolour pencils. The challenge at Lots To Do is using watercolours so I am entering this card.
I nearly forgot the sentiment, this is from my Clear Magic Lazy days set.

Well, there it is. Please feel free to leave comments they are always welcome.

Oh dear, that's not very fair is it, restricting you to only their challenge, surely it should be up to you what you do with it!!! No such rules on our challenge blog, so thanks very much for entering your wonderful card into ours this week - Lotstodo - Sam xxx

That's a great card Dragonlady and deserves to be seen by as wide an audience as possible. Thank you for entering it into this week's CDM as one of your challenges.

Hi Ali,

Yay! (I can never spell that!) Lovely pink card! and thank you for the comment! I was thinking of taking them off, I could never quite 'get' p.c. I always thought it had something to do with computers!

Great card!
I love combining challenges too and when I reach a challenge that doesn't let you combine it goes to the bottom of my list I'm afraid.
Super job and thanks for playing at CDM this week.

Super sweet card Ali, such a lovely image too! I don't know many challenge blogs that have a no combining rule these days...they will probably lose a fair few entries because of that :) Donna x

Lovely card... I linked here from your entry at Cute Daisy May.... could you maybe tell me how you link your card with 'here' in a comment? I've been trying to find out and I see that you did it!!
Good luck with the challenges - it's a bit silly when you can't enter a card in more than one...

Lovely card, the image is so sweet. I always think it's a shame when challenges don't let you combine, they must miss out on quite a few entries. Lisa x
