Quadruple Challenge!



This is my first ever quadruple challenge card!!! First I used this weeks Stamp TV sketch challenge hosted by Linda, one of my fellow CSS design team members! This is a awesome sketch! Second it for the Just Us Girls Challenge to use paper piecing with the optional use of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Third it's for the Saturday Spotlight challenge to "Dress up a tree". Forth it's for the Flourishes A Season of Sparkles challenge. We were to make our cards sparkle. I used my Sakura clear glitter pen on the star, heart and all around the edges of the tree. Not sure how well that shows up in the photo. I really like how this one turned out! Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think!

Supply List
Stamps ~ Gina K Lord of the Season
Paper ~ Cranberry Crisp, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Ink ~ Memento Tuxedo Black

Beautiful job! -- I'm loving the 'non-traditional' colors used here too :) (BTW -- I had to do a double take, as when I saw your name on the list -- you have the EXACT same name as my Mom, except her last name starts with W!) too funny.

Thanks for playing along this week -- hope to see you again next Saturday!
