3 Challenge combo for Sunday Special

Managing to finish a card with lots of work is already a task, and something to be happy about at the end of the day.. if my card satisfies 3 challenges.. that is something to celebrate with chocolate!! :)) lol

I was blog hopping when I found a new (or new to me) challenge Blog - Colour Create.. and these want a Blue and Brown colour combo challenge.. yes I like! Then I went to visit the Sugar Bowl.. and they want Christmas!! Nooo.. not yet.. let's see.. Okay my friend and fellow ROP DT member Susan is a guest Designer at Sketch Saturday for these two weeks, and I love their sketch. It is a small way of encouraging Susan.. by participating as well! When I was looking for DPs having blue and brown.. you know what came into my hands? Dovecraft's Winter wonderland Papers!! I love those papers! Christmas?! Yes..okay; I give up!! :)) so I can make 1 card for three challenges :)

I coloured with my Distress inks, and added crystal Stickles for snow underneath this Maggie with Dotty Scarf image from sugar Nellie. After settling all the layers, I embellished with Papermania and Prima flowers, Basic Grey Brad, Basic Grey buttons and a Christmas charm (which I think was part of a blog candy I had won). Last, but not least I made a freehand swirl out of self-adhesive gems.

By the way, lovely and talented Kristin was kind enough to give me this award. Thanks Kristin... you're adorable! :) I will also pass it on to Jules, keep it up my dear friend! Thumbs up, and always look on.. never back!

Another thing Summer is celebrating 2nd Birthday of ROP and some other sweet things with a YUMMY candy! Check it out here.. you have to be in to win it!! I'll be with you in some hours' time for a new Roses on Paper challenge.. and this time it will be ME challenging you. Will you be prepared?! Hmmm we'll see!! ;)

Have a lovely night! See you tomorrow morning ;)

Thanks for looking

Another beautiful card. I love the colors. Blue and brown are just perfect for a winter them, I think. I'm looking forward to your ROP challenge tomorrow.
