Three in one


 


Today's card (that just made me feel like Teri Anderson, ha ha) is for several challenges, a couple that are new to me, and one that I haven't participated in in a while.





First, my friend Debbie Marcinkiewicz recently opened her own stamp company, Paper Sweeties, and this month she started a new monthly sketch challenge.  There are all sorts of adorable sets in her store.  I used a sentiment from the Occasions set on this card. 



The second challenge I'm entering this in is also new to me:  Inspired by Stamping.  Here's the inspiration photo.  I was inspired by the colors and also the round ornament shapes and the hints of gold. 



Finally, I also drew some inspiration from Moxie Fab World's new Tuesday Trigger.  The doilies kind of remind me of the frames in the inspiration photo.


Have a wonderful evening!
