Always Time for Challenges...

Well, you would think that but sometimes life just gets in the way!  Please take a look at my latest 6x6 card that I will be entering in 4 challenges:


Willow Sketch Challenge
 This sketch worked well for all of them~Squiggle Fly was thinking Spring this week with the use of YELLOW so I used a FUN FUN FUN Watering Can image from Cheryl Alger
  • Gals you need to check out Willow Sketchie-great images but you don't have to use specific ones AND this sketch sure made my card making easy!!!
  • On the JUGS blog, the only requirement was to use the colors teal, pink, yellow, and green--That just screams Spring right?
  • And this great new site for me Ladybug Crafts has the requirement that it be spring colors, images etc.  With a name like that it's got to be alll goood
Some added features I tried on this was grunging up the mat with a small fingernail file and adding button loops under the accent buttons.
