Five Challenges In One


Sketch & Stash (3) - Sketch/New Stash = Stamps
Cute Card (46) - Metallica (Add something made of metal = heart charm)
Stamp Something - Valentine
Dutch Dare (34) - Love (NO pink or red)
Cutie Sunday (28) - Valentine

I started this one by layering onto the base card a blue patterned paper and a lilac script paper. I followed this with a strip down the side cut from the base card and inked along the edges with lilac. I stamped the image and coloured it with MLP pens and layered it using my nesties. (This is where I took the liberty of turning my oval shape around to accomodate the image). I also stamped and layered the greeting. Each were inked around the edges with lilac. To finish I added some lilac gems to the blue strip and a silver heart charm to the image.
