Penny Black/Card Patterns/Cuttlebug Spot Challenge...........its a 3 in 1!!






I really wanted to attempt to do one card that fulfilled the requirements of at least 2 challenges that I found on the Daily Dare bog. I've seen people do cards that meet the requirements of 5 or more challenges......and I'm amazed that they can do it! I was actually able to do this card and fulfill the requirements of 3 challenges! YEAH ME! I love the aqua mist paper from PTI. Just patiently waiting for them to get the new ink that matches the cardstock. The image is a PIF image from Penny Black and its for the Penny Black Challenge Soft and Sweet. I colored it with watercolor pencils and used my Dove Blender Pen to blend the pencil. I used the sketch challenge from the Card Patterns blog. I actually "finished" the inside of the card with DP and some sewing for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge although my embossing was the Swiss Dot folder I used on the main part of the card.I left the inside blank so that it could more versatile...........as in "Wishing you Good Luck" or "Wishing you a Happy Birthday" etc..... I'm really pleased with how the card turned out.
