Good morning, Everyone! How's everyone's Thursday morning so far? It's kind of cloudy here this morning but I think it will clear up later. We don't expect any rain but then who knows. It is the weather. :)

On to this card... I made this one last night and didn't get a chance to post it because once again, I was up so late and have to get up so early!

I found a couple of new challenge blogs the other day and so I thought I would join in the fun. Oh, in case you are looking at my sidebar for your blog, I haven't update it. :) But no need to worry, you are on my Google Reader. My list is getting way too long to add more.

Once again, I made a card for multiple challenges:

1. One Stop Craft Challenge: under pressure, which is to emboss. I embossed the purple cardstock
2. Owl Whimsy: cute Betty!. Make a purchase and enter this week's challenge. This little Betty is a freebie but you still need to purchase her to use it. Your invoice will be "0". So hop over to their blog, grab her and play along!
3. Friday Sketchers: the sketch
4. DU2DS: use ribbon.
5. Crafty Creation: the color purple
6. Stampin' for the Weekend: purple and yellow color combo. This is their first challenge ever! So show your support!


Image: Owl Whimsy

Embellishments: ribbon, buttons, MS fabric daisies

Paper: Once again, I don't remember the company name. I guess I don't have that habit of looking or checking. Shame on me!!

Ink: Versa Magic Pearlized lavender ink

Tools: Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cuttlebug, Copic Sketch skin tone, Le Plume markers

Wow Kim, you certainly managed to get your card in a lot of challenges, well done. Great sketch you followed, and what a sweet image. Love how you've colored her. Those flowers look so yummy too, they are silk right? love the use of the buttons too, it's always so nice to see lots of different embellishments on people's cards.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a lovely day.
