Playing with Some Challenges's SPRING!  Doesn't feel like it in my neck of the woods, but I'm sure the warm stuff is on its way!

To celebrate, I am making a card for 3 challenges...this week's Paper Players, the color challenge on SCS (smoky slate, whisper white, and wisteria wonder...the dessert is to add a touch of green) and a sketch challenge on SCS that I skipped.  I think they will all work together well.  Combined, they give me the card subject, colors, and layout...that's most of the work!

True confessions...I thought I had another hour to upload this card!  When I realized my mistake, I threw this together very quickly.  I'm not thrilled with it...but I really wanted to submit it to the Paper Players...just a personal goal.

That means this card is very flat (for me!)...but it will be easy to mail.  I needed a sympathy card, and I really love this flower from "Thanks for Caring" which I colored with my wisteria wonder and lucky limeade markers.  I stamped it on an oval, from my baggie of miscellaneous pre-cut shapes. My whisper white strips were in with my scraps.  One is embossed with the Vine folder and sponged with limeade.  The other is stamped with the tiny flower from "Because I Care"...because it was on my table!  I also added a smoky slate oval, because it is on of the challenge colors, and was only used for the card base.  I nearly forgot; the dsp is from SU's Flirtatious.  I had to quickly grab my Teeny Tiny Wishes, then used an oval punch which was already on my table.  I really wish I had just stamped it flat on the horizontal stripe instead of embossing that first.  But when you make a card in 20 minutes, things don't always work out as you hope!  LOL

At any is my triple challenge card.  Whew!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wonderful colors and papers of this beautiful sympathy card, Kim! I love that flower! I don't think I have seen it before.

  2. The colors are soft and lovely for a sympathy card. Nice job with all those challenges!

  3. Kim I understand about personal goals and trying to get those cards in under the wire of the deadline! It's clean and simple and quite lovely. And, it's not so flat. I think I see a bit of lift under the top oval panel. The recipient will feel loved.

  4. Lovely card- great layout and love the way you tied all of the colors together- love the brads you added for that.
