In a challenge kind of mood...

So I have been in a little creative funk the past several days and in trying to get some inspiration I have been looking at a ton of "challenge" blogs.  So for this blog post I am going see how many I can enter and hopefully get my groove back.  

For this card I recreated a design I did a few weeks ago for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge using different paper and colours.  For this card I used Cotton Candy and Lagoon Inks and the striped paper is from the Skylark Paper Packet. I wanted a bright Birthday Card for a very bight girl.  

Challenges I am entering:

- Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Hearts Galore This weeks theme is "Hearts" which you can interpret any way you like.  Now I don't officially have a "heart" on this card or do I?...  If you look at the flower petals I think you might see some hearts...
- Seize the Birthday - Time For A Little Love.  This weeks theme is "Anything Goes Birthday" with a "Heart" Topping.  Once again do I have a heart on this card or don't I? Flower petals...

- Shopping our Stash - SOS #138: Oh Shiny!   The theme is to use something shiny on your card and I think I managed to add some bling.

- Just Add Ink:  JAI #202 Just Add Stripes  Love the Lagoon striped paper from the Skylark Paper Packet from Close To My Heart.

Well that's 4!  I think I am going to go make another card and see how many challenges I can meet with it...

Happy Crafting!
