6 challenges in one!

cards2 002

b'day card (24) close up

I was on a roll with this card and I managed to fit in 6 challenges (a first for me woohoo!). The challenges are:

Pile it On – 3 different embellishments

Stamp with us – card for a child

Secret Crafter – 3 ribbons

Creative Card Crew – ribbons

Pollycraft – to the point - arrows (incidentally they have now changed their rules so if you don't have a pollycraft image you can still enter their challenges!

One Stop Craft Challenge – stars and stripes

I used a digi image called ‘skateboard Josh’ from DigiStamp Boutique and coloured it with my promarkers. The striped paper, ribbons, sentiment and ovals behind it are all SU. The plain cs and buttons are from my stash and I used my CB embossing folders on the cs (swiss dots on the blue and diamond plate on the red). The decorative edge was cut with my fiskars border punch and the arrows were cut out of the paper. The two small stars are adhesive stones by PM. I’m really happy with this card and was worried it would look too overloaded but I think it’s ok, let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by today.
