Three Challenges in One


Happy Saturday everyone!  I bookmarked quite a few card challenges that I wanted to do this week and I managed to combine three of them on this one card.


Here are the challenges I joined:






I am so happy that I finally got to play along with Paulina's 10 Minute Craft Dash.  Since Simon Says Stamp's theme was Patriotic I knew that my color scheme would be red, white and blue.  I decided to use Laurie's card for the Muse challenge as my sketch.  That made it much easier to decide on what supplies to pull out.

Here's what I laid out to use:


 Yes, I already had some stars die cut so that certainly saved time.  For my base I thought I'd use either of the Guidelines papers or just plain white.  As you can see I decided on Guide Lines II grid paper.  I liked the look of the circles with the stars.

  Here's my time.  I swear I thought I'd run out of time just trying to pull the backing off of the glitter tape!  I really need to play the 10 minute challenge all the time.  It forces me to just create a card and not spend too much time over-thinking it.






 
 All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   Star Prints, 2012 Birthday Tags
Paper:   Guide Lines II grid, white
Ink:   Pure Poppy, Blue Breeze (kaleidacolor)
Other:  glitter tape (american crafts), Seeing Stars dies
