One card fits 6 challenges

Rightee... I have got rather behind this week with challenges, not least because I spent an evening dithering over my first proper DT card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge (all will be revealed tomorrow LOL!) However, last night I sat down to make a birthday card for my friend Mand (I hope I'm safe posting it as she hasn't had opportunity to blog for a while) .... and I looked around the challenges on the go for some inspiration. Well, I suppose you could say I found plenty, as I think I managed to fulfil SIX challenges with this one .....
1. Whiff of Joy Challenge #7 is a fantastic sketch - I don't own any WOJ stamps (yet!), but I had some fantastic images of Melinda gifted to me by Cathy, so that formed my starting point

2. This week's ABC Challenge is P is for pink .... well to be honest that's not a hard one for me, as pink tends to feature rather a lot (too much??) in my card making ... I've even started making pink Christmas cards now, but that's another story .....

3. Cute Card Thursday #35 is Fairies and Angels .... so the WOJ Melinda stamp fulfils that one nicely :-)

4. Similarly, the One Stop Craft Challenge #2 is Things with Wings ....

5. You may spot (though the photo doesn't make it very clear) that I have made the wings and hearts sparkly with glamour dust ... which is a requirement for today's Daring Cardmakers Challenge which is sparkle and bling

6. Last but not least, Arty Girlz Challenge #59 is to include a hand drawn element ... so at the last minute Igot brave and doodled a little around the edge of my image ... it ain't very artistic .. but it's done now!

I used: main image WOJ "Melinda Blowing Kisses", watercolorued and decorated on wings and hearts with glamour dust; sentiment by Papermania; papers by Melissa Frances; buttons from local market.


  1. WOW! a 6 in 1, I take my hat off to you Pauline! The card is gorgeous and the image is coloured to perfection.
