Yes, belive it or not but I managed to make just one card this evening and combine 4 different challenges at the same time!!!
It sure was a challenge, I can tell you.
First of all, I used this sketch from Friday Sketchers:
And this is how my card turned out like:
This card also fits the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - Monochrome theme
Daring Cardmakers - Getting punchy with it; Use your newest punch (corner punch from EK Success)
Quixotic Challenges - Birthdays

Oh, and I promised you a picture of my little princess, holding her card proudly and here she is!
Her name is Ástrós Erla (Ást = love) (rós = rose).

Well, as always when you start off making a card, it usually doesn't always end up like the original sketch. Right???
That at least happened to me this time. I was going to make an oval circle (like the sketch says) but, then I realized that it would hide the embossed flower and I wanted to have that flower on the card... So, I decided to skip the oval circle and have the flower instead. I added some Stickles to it to make it "pop" a little. The text is in icelandic "Láttu þér batna" which means in english: "Get Well Soon".
I was quite happy about how it turned out, actually.
This is the sketch:
My dear daughter wanted me to take a picture of her with the card, she thought it was sooo beautiful ;)
And here is the card itself:
Papers are from Bazzill and Shabby Shoppe. The stamp is from House Mouse: Berry full - Mudpie.

The picture is of my best friend ever, Jónína.
We met almost 20 years ago and allthough we lost contact as teenagers (because of me moving to Norway and the Internet didn't hardly exist), we have found each other again and this time we will never loose each other again!!!
The small roses that I used are from Lene, they were in my Blog Candy ;)

This is how my card turned out. It was quite a challenge, since we don't celebrate Halloween here in Iceland and this is my very first Halloween card, ever!!!
I got the stamped image and nearly all the papers and embellishments from Lene, it was in my Blog candy :D
This card also qualifies for the Halloween challenge at Stampartic and Incy Wincy Designs challenge no 14 ;)

This is the sketch:
And here is my version:
The stamp is from Magnolia, papers are from Fancy Pants and Bazzill and flowers are from Prima.
Papers are from The Paper Company, BoBunny and some noname paper aswell. The flowers are from Prima and everything is distressed with Distress Ink - Tea Dye. I think the stamp is Hänglar og Stenglar.
