1 Card for 3 Challenges

Here is one card for 3 challenges. The first time I have entered more than one challenge in one go. The Challenges are:Critter Challenges - #36 Hip to be Square, Crafty Creations Challenge - #89 Show a Number and Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #32 - Using a freebie. See the end of this entry for the links to the challenges.

The Hip to be square was a sketch challenge so the card follows that idea. To show a number - it is in the sentiment. Use a freebie - this was the central stamp that was free with Craft Stamper magazine a few months ago.

The card is based on a 6 inch square. The dusky pink coloured layering card was hand made by me from a piece of cream card, sprayed with Glimmer Mist and covered with crinkled cling film until it was dry. This concentrates the mica powder to give silvery highlights. Hmmm, maybe not too evident in the picture, but they are there, I can assure you!

Various Shapabilities were used to cut out the background square shapes and also the sentiment which was created in DSA.

The image was stamped on to glossy card with Black Stazon ink.

The card was then assembled having cut a slit in the spine so that the ribbon could be threaded through.
