One Sketch, Three Challenges

This week I decided to participate in a few card challenges.  The first being OWH Stars and Stamps Wednesday Challenge "Going Dotty", Alphabet Challenge "S is for Stripes" and Color Dare CD99 challenge.    I selected OWH Star and Stamps sketch #59 for the cards. 

The OWH Stars and Stamp challenge required dots on the card.  The dots could be embossed or dots on paper.  The Color Dare challenge required the colors basic grey, marina mist and cherry cobbler  be used.  I decided to combine the two challenges, of course I had to use my favorite stamp set Stampin Up "For All You Do" and my dots are embossed using Cricut Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

The Alphabet Challenge required stripes.  Easy enough.  I used the same sketch, same image, marina mist and cherry cobbler card stock, and some coordinating striped paper from Paper Studio.   Voila!!

Nice way to spend a Saturday morning, being crafty and creative. 

Please say a prayer for all the wonderful people of Japan.  The damage and destruction just breaks my heart.  I lived in Japan for 8 years so it is a place very dear to me and my family.  My hubby and I got married in Tokyo 21 years ago.  

See ya!!
