3 Challenge Combo Card

Good evening everyone. Hope you've all had a good few days. The weather's been pretty bleak here. The wind's blowing a gale and it's really quite chilly. Now to cap it call, it's started to pour down. Haven't been feeling that great the last couple of days so it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've tried to combine a few challenges with this new card but I must admit I find that a bit of a challenge in itself!

It's my younger daughter Erin's birthday tomorrow. She's a very good card maker herself, so I have to make a decent job of her birthday card. I bought this stamp a while ago with her birthday in mind - it's Claudia from Sugar Nellie. I think she's devine - so slim and elegant. She reminded me immediately of my daughter.

I think I can enter this card for 3 challenges: Colour Create which is Red, Cream and Chocolate; A Spoonful of Sugar which is Touchy Feely - I've got velvet flowers and that funny ribbony stuff across the middle and silky satin on my other ribbon. I hope that's enough touchy feely. I think I can also enter Secret Crafter Saturday which is flowers. I've got flowers inside and on the front of the card. I hope this all counts!

This is Claudia:

Card Recipe:
Inktense Watercolour Pencils to colour Claudia
Cosmic Shimmers for her scarf and jewellery.
Nestabilities Labels One run through the Cuttlebug to mount image
Ribbon, pin, brads and gems from stash
I don't know what that stuff across the middle is called - I got it from Hobbycraft
The flowers were puched with my daisy punches again
The sentiment is a Hampton Art clear stamp from a sentiment set
The red paper is Basic Grey and the brown paper is Fancy Pants Antique - I used the back of this for the flowers as well since they were quite dark being red and brown
Cardstock is Coredinations


I hope you like my card. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Hi Lynne,
This card is superb. Your deep, velvety colors are fit for a queen and the inside is just as stunning as the outside!! Great job on the 3-in-1 challenge too!!
