Double Challenge Card

Happy Monday!!

I am not a Monday person, but I am trying  to put a spin on this cold gray day!  I got up a little later than I had hoped, did my morning prayer, and decided to quickly make a card for these 2 challenges (both have deadlines today.)

The Colour Me...! challenge is very nice for Valentine's Day, but since that is over, I made a general card.  I combined it with this Freshly Made Sketch challenge.

My card base is cherry cobbler.  I embossed a layer of whisper white with the petals-a-plenty folder.  The left panel is pink pirouette.  My image and sentiment are from "Because I Care."  I used markers to color the flower, including smoky slate.  I tried "thumping" the cherry marker...maybe should try again!  LOL I combined the decorative label and scallop oval punches for the sentiment.    I added a few rhinestones to the flower, and a small row in the lower right-hand corner.  The image panel is popped up with dimensionals.  I needed something else, so I added a bit of doodling on the pink pirouette layer...something I used to do a lot.  It's a bit messy.  But it IS doodling, so I am excused, right?

Any way, this was very quick.  I guess I could make lots of cards if I always had a deadline!  They may not be fancy, but they are still fun.  Thanks for stopping by!
