Card Entry for 3 Different Card Challenges!

As I am writing this post, I am still thinking how I managed to combine three card challenges by making just one card. Hope that it qualifies me for all three. Had a lot of fun making this card. This card is being entered for the following challenges :

1. Card Patterns Sketch 116
2. Farm Fresh Friday - Summer Lovin'! for The Greeting Farm
3. The Craft's Meow presents...Embossing Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards

This is Sketch #116 over at Card Patterns :

This is my take on the sketch :

As you can see, I love paper piecing my images at the moment! The colours I used are really bright because that is the theme for the challenge over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog, to use summer colours. The pattern papers are from Echo Park's A Walk In The Park collection. The stamped image is Hello Ian from The Greeting Farm.

I embossed the semi-circles with my Cuttlebug embossing folder. Ian's cap is also embossed and paper pieced for more dimension. The embossing features are to fulfill the Craft's Meow embossing challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.

Finally, I added some glossy accents to accentuate the flower and the two little buttons on his shirt.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for visiting my blog!
