Three Challenges in One...

I've had a productive day crafting...thanks to the awful weather...can't show you everything just yet...one card is my DT card for the ABC Challenge tomorrow, and another is for a birthday next week, but I can show you this one. I combined three challenges: the sketch from Stamp Something; the 'New Beginnings' theme of the Secret Crafter Challenge; and the colour combo of 'Light Blue or Turquoise & Brown' (although I must admit to misreading this as 'Light Blue, Turquoise & Brown'! lol) of the Stampavie Challenge. My main image is 'Garden Bears' by Rachelle Anne Miller (for Stampavie), and as the sketch is quite simple, I used layers of plain card, the main piece embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' folder, for the background. The sentiment was cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and the ribbon (just seen poking out from behind the image!) is from Hobbycraft.
