One card - six challenges

Here's another card I made two nights ago, but naughty Blogger wouldn't let me upload my pics for most of last night so I didn't manage to post. So at last, here it is ....

This week's Forever Friends Challenge is your favourite colour .... when it comes to making cards mine is undeniably pink, which is strange cos it's not a colour I wear a lot (but maybe that's just due to my advancing age LOL!). I originally received this FF image from my friend Kaz and liked it so much I went out just before Christmas and bought the stamp!!

This brings me on neatly to the second challenge this card covers, which is Stamp Something - where the theme is something new. This card has definitely got that covered- it is the first outing for both my FF stamp and for the Penny Black sentiment stamp; my spotty ribbon was purchased half price from WH Smith in the January sale, and the background papers were a scrummy Christmas present from a Secret Santa swap amongst a group of my crafty friends :-) ... which also fulfils this week's CCT#42, to use something you got for Christmas.

Fourth, the brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz is launching today, with my talented friend Sharon as the first guest designer (congratulation, hun!). Their opening theme is pink ... woo hoo, need I say more??

Fifth, over at Papertake Weekly they are seeing spots. Now this isn't an uber-spotty card but they are definitely there ... one of the background papers is a bit dotty (like me lol!), the ribbon has spots and circles, and the sentiment has some dotty letters ... plus there are little pearl gems dotted around :-)

Finally, Lili of the Valley is starting the New year by saying that anything goes ... a nice easy challenge to ease us into 2009!

Main image - FF coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura sparkly pen on the flowers

Pearl gems from my stash
