Loving many things


This card took hours to upload because my photo editing software was giving me fits. UGH. . . but, hey, I finally got it all fixed. I am using Picasa 3 because I really love it and it’s FREE! Have you tried it? If you are looking for a nice photo editing program and don't want to spend any money on it, you might want to check out Picasa.

I managed to work 5 challenges on this card. My sketch is from SCS – SC229. My color combo meets 2 challenges kwernerdesigns color inspiration #44 - Choc. Chip, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa and whisper white and Basic Grey #23 Color Combo Brown and pink or Pink and Green or Blue and Brown. Unfortunately, I can’t link to the Basic Grey challenge and now, whenever I try to go to the site I get an error that basically the blog can only be viewed by invitation only. I also managed to work 365 Cards challenge #79 – Mondays Manufacturer to use your favorite manufacturer in the majority of your card. I used Basic Grey. Then I added one more Basic Grey challenge # 19 which was a card recipe to use 2 patterned papers, 1 button, 1 ribbon & bow and 3 brads. I substituted pearls for brads only because I really couldn't find a brad I liked and I liked the look of the pearls.

I’m pretty stoked that I managed to get 5 challenges on one card. Not as good as Ginny over at my5bratz who managed to work 12 challenges into one card, but . . . .oh, heck, not even close. You really need to check out her card with 12 challenges and can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Beautiful card and great sentiment! I think 5 challenges is awesome! I have trouble zeroing in on one! LOL And, I agree with you about Picasa. It is a wonderful addition to my photo editing! Hope you have a blessed day!

Way to go getting 5 challenges into one card. I really like your patterned paper. And I like that the sentiment is your focal point. I have to remember to do that. I have a lot of boldly patterned papers that I can never find images to go with that don't compete. This is a good solution. And so pretty.
