One Card - Three Challenges

This card I combined three challenges into one card. The design / layout of the card is the sketch challenge on Papertake Weekly.

Also the Theme Thursday Challenge is to use pink and brown.

The challenge this week on Arty Girlz is "make something that includes chocolate! Chocolate coloured paper, ribbons, flowers, chocolate smelling embossing powder. A chocolate cake perhaps! The only other condition is that it HAS to include only one other colour (oh ok I'll let you have white too then lol)." So I used chocolate brown and pink as my two main colours and used a DMD butterfly stamp as my main image (don't know what that has to do with chocolate though) LOL.

Mountboard Squares

This is the first time I've used mountboard. These are 2" x 2" squares which I have made for a swap I'm involved in. The only condition was that they had to be spring colours. I used my distress ink pads to make the backgrounds and sprayed a little gold glimmer mist on. I stamped various See D's floral stamps using a versamark ink pad and sprinkled gold embossing powder on and heated with my heat gun. I coloured the flowers using my Marvey Le Plume pens and then edged each of the squares in gold.

Di Hickman March Sketch #4

I made this card following a sketch on Di Hickmans Blog. I used a lilac A5 card and the papers I used are from Pink Peticoat. I just added a purple ribbon and bow as on the sketch. I feel that there is something missing from this card - it looks too bare to me. I might alter it and add something else to it ..... but then it wouldn't follow the sketch LOL.
