"Multi Challenge! Cute Card Thursday & SBS22 Valentine ~ Tag You're it ~ Daring Cardmakers 3 papers~ One Stop Crafts Charmed~


The old adage "Killing more than one bird with one stone" comes to mind with this card. It is a challenge entry for Daring Cardmakers to use 3 patterned papers; One Stop Crafts, 'Charmed', to use a charm; Cute Card Thursday, a Valentine... also for SBS22 Valentine Challenge where no red or pink could be used. This came in handy for the Tag You're It challenge which stipulated the use of purple. SO there you have it.
I made the little envelope from a scrap of vellum that I had lurking in the drawer, the main purple paper is Anita's and all the rest is odds and ends.
The idea of the vellum envelope was pinched from my SBS22 sister Denise, sadly I didn't have a punch to make it, but I think that it works OK!
The picture makes it look a little pale and interesting, but I hope you get the idea.

  23. It beats my how you manage to make a card for more than one challenge at I time, I struggle to do just one most of the time. Lol.

    You’ve done a great job though and turned out a fantastic card.
