Some favorite blog challenges

I haven't had a chance to play along with any challenges recently. Organizing the Queen Challenge has kept me busy with that so that I don't spend nearly as much time playing in other challenges. I made an effort tonight just to have some fun stamping time to play some challenges that I've been missing.

I combined two of my favorite challenges for this card. Create, Ink! ColorLab Color Challenge #43 - not quite navy, riding hood red, early espresso. I knew this would be a great combo!
I used the layout from my Clean & Simple Stamping - Fall to Layout #143.

I thought I'd try out Awash with Flowers. I doodled the stem and used alternating red and blue. I've neglected this sentiment and it was the perfect size and shape for this sketch. I did some cutting out of the box with the sentiment and flower, added some piercing, embossing, punches and a baker's twine bow.

Very nice Trish! I have some samples given to me of cardstock embossed with that texture plate- thanks for the idea of how to use them!!
