Word to your mother

Woo hoo! It figures that's all I needed to have my mojo replenished - a bit of time and a couple of cards made just because. It reminded me how much I love creating with the challenges, just for the fun of it, and sharing the joy with all of you beautiful people.

As I was browsing through the current ones, it happened that the vision that I had for a particular sketch, expanded to accommodate three more challenges. Quite easily, really...
Another thing I really like - combining them.
Creating with a sketch or colour combo only in mind, is not too much of an effort to me any more, while when I aim myself to put together several different ideas, into a coherent and appealing card, that's when things get really entertaining. Honestly, I wouldn't know what I'd do without challenges. With so many stamps, papers and ideas floating around in my head, I need guidelines to get me going or I'd get lost.

This number was put together with Echo Park and Bo Bunny papers, Flourishes beautiful Love and Lace stamps, Kaisercraft ribbon and mulberry roses and polka dot grosgrain ribbon. Also, lots of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, which is my number one for inking the edges.
The circular motifs in the stamp set, were cut with Circle Nestabilities®; the decorative frame fits in Standard Circles SM, and the insert in Standard Circles LG.

...and the challenges for this one?
The lovely ISSC14 sketch, the inspiration photo of TSTR113,

Timeless Tuesday #168 ("pink-a-licious") and RCC52 - Word to Your Mother.
