A card for a few challenges!

congrats card (12)

congrats card (12) close up


I made this card for the Quixotic challenge which has a challenge of altering an Anya image.  Well we’ve had two weeks to make our card but as usual I’ve left it completely until the last minute as the challenge ends tomorrow at 9am.  I haven’t gone altering mad and I bet until I say you’ll be hard pushed to see what I’ve done lol!  My altering is Anya’s top has been changed into a cardigan but adding a line and dots for the buttons.  I also changed her striped socks into checked socks.  I’m quite happy with the result though.  I used an image kindly sent to me by Tracy (Dies to Die For) and coloured it with my trusty promarkers.  The pretty papers are from the polka dot paper pack by wild rose studio and the plain card is from the papermill shop.  The sentiment is from the elzybells everyday stamp set and was cut out with my SU oval all punches.  The cute little heart buttons are from my stash and the gorgeous picot ribbon is from fantastic ribbons.  Even though it’s not a ‘spring’ card in the true sense of the term I think the colour scheme screams spring! 

Luckily my card also fits in with a few other challenges:

Roses on paper challenge – punch it

Creative card crew challenge – going dotty

Pixie dust studio challenge – power of 3 (3 buttons, 3 layers)

Paper cutz challenge – 1 ribbon & 3 buttons

Totally gorjuss challenge – ribbon

Paper jewels challenge – cute and girly

Incy wincy designs challenge – Easter or spring

Crafty cardmakers challenge – spring into spring

Crafty catz challenge – spring

Allsorts challenge – spring into spring

Secret crafter Saturday challenge – spring has sprung

Sweet stampin’ challenge – spring is in the air

Right I’d better get off and get organised for school/work tomorrow.  Sweet dreams everyone :)
