I like it when I sit down, pick a colour challenge, a sketch and a theme challenge or two, and then everything else just falls into place. Well that is what happened making this card. The challenges were Scrapmaster's Paridise Colour Combo Challenge, Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, Friday Mash Up, and Hand Stamped Sentiments. Had I set out to make 4 challenges in one card I think I would have struggled, I knew I wanted to do a card for each of these at some point this weekend. Isn't it funny how sometimes things just "work"? A sure sign the mojo is back.
I didn't realise how soft and pretty the colours in the colour challenge would look together, I wanted to layer the card stock and DSP to make them stand out from each other a little bit. When I did I realised how much they reminded me of a quilt, perhaps it was my visit to the Craft and Quilt Expo last weekend that made me have quilts on my mind. I also had in mind the HSS faux stitching challenge in the back of my mind, and it all just fit together nicely. I even wanted to give an applique look to the cup cake, the button also adds to the general quilty theme.
