Some FUN Challenges!!!

Wow, a week has flown by and I have been taking a wee break from stamping due to some life stuff that needed to be dealt with!  But I am now back and wanted to play with some challenges.  Here is my card!  I seem to be in a creative slump, this card took a long time to create!!!  But I had fun playing along and really was inspired by the awesome challenges below.

I decided to try the Sketch for You To Try Challenge:

And I also loved the challenge of the Color Throwdown Colors...I love that ornate bed frame and used an ornate style embossing folder for my background.

And there is a relatively new challenge out there created by pals called the Paper Lovin' Gals, and they are using this GREAT inspiration photo.  It is all about butterflies and flowers.  Hence the flowers and butterfly on my card!

  3. Hi Lesley, This is such a pretty card, I really like the wide striped ribbon added in behind the main image. Really lovely card even if it took ages to come together.

  4. Beautiful use of the colors Lesley! Love all the texture...very pretty indeed! (hugs)

  5. Beautiful. I love the use of colours and images together. And I especially think the flower makes the card more fascinating to study.
