A Trio of Challenges.

I've been having a little play (making up for lost time!) and I have managed to kill three birds with one stone!
I had a trip around blog land and found three challenges that took my fancy and came up with this card
I started with a 5" x 5" card base of Very Vanilla and added a square of Basic Black. I then took some Crumb Cake (mmmmmmm cake) on to which I added cut out flowers from the Simply Said stamp set. These were stamped in Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler. I did add some glitter to a couple of the flowers but the photo does not show this very well and then to finish it off I added a few ruby gems to some of the flower centres.
I love how this card turned out and I am going to enter it into the following challenges:
Clean and Simple - Sketch Challenge
Splitcoast Stampers - Colour Challenge - Basic Black, Cherry Cobber & Crumb Cake.
Less is More - Thank You or Congratulations.
That's all for today folks - see you soon - Jacqueline xx.
