1 Card, 3 Challenges

Happy Monday to you!  It's raining....again but what perfect inspiration for a Sympathy card right?  And it just so happens that is the Make it Monday Challenge this week over at PTI.  This card also qualifies for the challenge at Mark's Finest Papers which is to use tone-on-tone stamping and pop up the sentiment.  Here I used CTMH Bamboo ink on PTI Fine Linen cardstock and then popped up the whole center panel.

The final challenge that this card qualifies for is a new one I discovered a couple weeks ago but haven't had the time to play.  It's a fairly new challenge blog with an awesome Design Team and wonderful inspiration called CAS-ual Fridays.  This week's challenge was to use bling on a CAS card.  I used adhesive backed pearls from CTMH and also added a little sparkle to the leaves using my favorite Sakura clear glitter pen.

Be sure to also check out this Make it Monday blog where each week you can upload any of your cards.  No challenge involved.

Have a wonderful day!

Products Used:
