Three Challenges in One

The card for today is for three challenges. First it's my CropStop Cuttlebug project for today - with a focus on using Chalk Inks. It's also the Friday Challenge on 365 Cards (sort of), and uses the sketch from ICSketches.

At 365 Cards the challenge was to use a diamond as your dominate image. I misread the rule on the DT calendar and only wrote down that I needed a diamond on the card. Well, I used the Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough folder...so have lots of diamonds. So let's hope it counts.

This is my first time playing at ICSketches! Great sketch site, BTW. Check it out!

I made this card for my MIL who is in very serious condition in the hospital right now. If y'all could say a prayer for Mary, that she recovers fully, that would be much appreciated!

Cardstock: Bazzill, Stampin' Up; Paper: Melissa Frances; Stamp: Inkadinkado; Sentiment: computer generated; other elements from my LSS May kit.

  2. Wow, I just love how you doubled up on the argyle---using it on two panels and using separate techniques on each of them. Just brillant!.........deanna
