One Card - 4 Challenges




I started this card with every intention of including 5 challenges - but I couldn't fit 365 Cards' mosaic challenge on here. Dang! I tried... I cut up a luscious red heart and had it ready to glue on, but it just looked like a broken heart... which was NOT the look I was going for... so I skipped it. I've got mini hearts (cut in two), but somehow they worked... but unfortunately, they hardly qualify as mosaic.

Here's the list of Challenges met:

Unscripted Sketches #23
Cupcake Craft - Pearls & Swirls
Three Clovers - Letter or Letters (but no words)
Pile it On - Black, White + one more colour

Cardstock - Bazzill Swiss Dots; Design Paper - BoBunny; Pearls - KaiserCraft; Flourish & XO border cut with Silhouette.

I'll have to work on the 365 Challenge later this week. I'm dead tired now - work's a little overwhelming. September's the end of the fiscal year at work - and I'm soooo close to making my sales goal. Work (and therefore, life) will be a little hectic for the next two weeks (but hopefully, I'll still find time to play with paper and glue!)

Thanks for checkin' out my blog!
