a 3 for 1 card!

I had a little time to stamp today so I decided to take on 3 challenges in one card!! I did sketch 164 from SCS for the layout, color challenge 54 for the color combo and decided which set to use based on glitter monkey's friend challenge.

It was the color combo that was really out of the box for me. The combo was pumpkin pie, celerey and orchid opulescence. Not a combo I've ever used before, in fact I don't think I've ever use orchid before at all!

I'm still debating on whether or not I should color in the flowers on the main image. I had to leave before I hada chance to color it in but now I'm not sure if I even need to.

Stamps: Simply said Ink and CS: celery, orchid, pumpkin, WW Accessories: silver brads, pumpkin grosgrain, ticket corner and oval punches, sponges.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

What a really beautiful card Erin. Isn't it funny how different we all are - of the few bits of SU I have the orchid card and pen is one of my favourite colours! Thanks for playing. Lol Lynn x


I think you did a great job with these colors! Your card looks very elegant!

Beautiful card Erin! Great that you could do so many challenges in one card! That color combo is one I haven't used, but I do like it. It's great that you've had these chances to stamp this week too, it's nice to see what you're creating! :)


a Three-FER!! I am VERY impressed that you got 3 challenges in one. I just can't seem to get my brain to work beyond 1!! Love it by the way!!


You rocked this combo!!
