Craving the Fall Colors & Quad Challenge Card



Yep! You read that right! This card was made with FOUR challenges in mind. Sometimes I wonder if I ever have an original idea. LOL But when there are so many projects floating around in your head, letting other people tell you what to do takes the away the agony of the decision-making process.

I found out last week that a neighbor at our old house just had knee replacement surgery, so I'll be getting this in the mail to her tomorrow.

First, Beate is back! After taking the summer off for some well-deserved family time, she started posting weekly sketches again. I always love participating in her sketch challenges and Sketch #54 was so fun to work with.

The Dutch Dare Challenge blog asked for Get Well cards this week.

Our Creative Corner's weekly challenge was a color challenge: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip.

And the new card challenge at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking was to make a card with fall colors without a fall sentiment.

The stamps are Butterfly Bits and Ordinary Greetings. I used a smidgen of patterned paper by Scenic Route, my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, and dimensionals for the top layer of the butterly. Did I nail it? I love it when I can mark four things off my list!!
