One Card - 4 Different Challenges!!!

Hi, there!

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

Quixotic Challenges is a brand new Challenge blog and this is their very first challenge!!! If you participate in all their challenges each month you will maximise your chances of winning a monthly prize that they'll have ;)

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).

MMSC25 - Midnight Madness Challenge and SSS challenge

Wow, this sketch was sooo difficult for me to follow!!!
But not for my little angel, Astros Erla.
She is only 5, but already making cards ;)
Mine is for both MMSC 25 and Simon Says Stamp challenge where the theme was "all that glitters."
Here is the sketch from MMSC:

And here is my card:

The flower is spayed with Glimmer Mist, Pink Taffy.
Tilda has som Stickles in her dress.
Astros Erla made a card following the same sketch and I helped her cutting the papers, inking and glueing but she chose the papers and the images to stamp all by her self and and she colored them and used pencils herself.
The card is Bazzill bling - yellow and the circles are also bling but dark red.
I'll add a picture of her here tomorrow, holding her card proudly ;)

A House Mouse card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge

This is the beautiful sketch this week over at Friday Sketchers challenge blog:

I think it's just fantastic and this is how my card turned out to be like.

I just love this House Mouse stamp; Berried. I embossed some of the berries with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) but realized afterwards, that I should have colored them darker before embossing them. Oh, well... Better luck next time ;)

Here is a closeup of the berries:

"Get well soon" card for the SSS challenge and Just Magnolia challenge

I decided to combine two challenges into one card. The Simon Says Stamp challenge; Get well soon and the Just Magnolia challenge; this wonderful sketch:

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".

Papers are from Bazzill, Chatterbox and the ribbon is from BoBunny.
Here is a closeup of the flower ;)

MMSC24 - Midnight Madness Challenge

I made a card for the MMSC 24 - Midnight Madness Challenge on Friday night.
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.

Here is a closeup of the flowers. The pink ones are from Kristin Margret (they were a RAK) and the rose is from Lene (my blog candy gift).

A new card for the Simon Says challenge and Just Magnolia challenge

I made this card today for the Simon Says challenge, using as required, this sketch.
This is how my card turned out like. I think it also qualifies for the challenge over at Just Magnolia - Bright and Zingy. I used Bazzill and Bazzill Bling, sequens and Prima flowers and I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist, Pink Taffy. I've had this Glimmer Mist for at least a year now but still, this was my first time ever using it ;)

A card for Friday sketchers challenge, the Stampartic challenge and Incy Wincy Designs Challenge!!!

Hi there :)
Long time no written, well sort of at least ;-)
I've just had the best day with my darling daugter, Ástrós Erla and my hubby, Viðar.
First we went to the cinema and saw Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure and after that we went to IKEA. We are planning to buy a new kitchen table and we were looking at our options ;)

I made a card on friday night using this sketch from Friday Sketchers:

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 ;)
