1st post of the day 1 card 3 challenges ...

1. Creative card crew's challenge is to use flowers, which I have 4 paper, 2 gem and 1 fabric. Wow 7 on 1 card that's alot for me.
2. Sketch n stash as always like us to use our newest stash or something we've not used before on the sketch above. The newest things on this card are the paper flowers purchased last week, and the stamp I got last year but have never used it and boy did I have problems inking it. About 7 attempts before I got a decent image. The stamp,bubble paper and paper flowers are by Imaginisce. the background paper is by English paper company and everything else is from my stash.
3. The secret crafter only posted this challenge earlier this morning. A colour combo of Pink, Turquoise and a hint of brown. Papers and colours fit the bill I think.
I think I've fulfilled all the challenges and have really enjoyed making this card. I've put "Happy Birthday" round the circle in Hawian. Good old Google !

Ta for popping in and haveing a look, please feel free to leave a comment and pop in anytime for a glass of ice cold lemonade.

Gorgeous card Karen, I love this stamp! I think ones with a lot of black are always difficult! I always colour in the black myself with a pen!!
Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Sketch and Stash!
Love Becky xx
