Multiple Challenge Card

I made this card today with the hopes of making it a multiple challenge card & I think I actually succeeded. I have never done any of the challenges I have seen on other blogs but thought this would be a great way to stretch my boundaries and extend my abilities. I started out unsure of what I was doing but in the end came out with a card that I really like. This is also not my usual style, I tend more to the simple & elegant, where as this is a little more gussied than I normally would do.

I started out by viewing this card by Lesley of Always Playing With Paper Blog. She did three different challenges with this one card. So, I decided to give it a try. 

The challenges are as follows:
Color Throwdown #176  this is where I got my color choices.

January 2012 SFYTT this is where the basic layout came from (the sketch).


PLG #16......Flutter By Butterfly I got some of my inspiration from this picture. I felt the colors from the above color challenge worked perfectly with this photo and Butterflies are always fun to incorporate.

Leave a message and let me know how you think I did.

I hope you all enjoy!

  2. Hello Danica,

    I'm so glad we could inspire you to create for a challenge. That's what this is all about, taking a step outside your comfort zone, be careful though it's addictive! AND such fun.

    Your card is lovely. I like all of it!
