This is the MOST...

...number of challenges I've done on one card. This simple, little card overs the following challenges for Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash this weekend:

#3 Paper Piecing
#6 a sketch
#7 to do the tole technique (if you don't know what it is like I did, click on the link to find out)
#8 to use color combo Teal, Rose and Yellow
#11 to use any kind of distressing
#12 to use buttons as the main embellishment
#13 to use stitching

That's a total of SEVEN challenges in one card. I love it when I can do that. I think I've just found a new personal cardmaking goal - to see if I can top that :-).

Here's the close up. I was so clueless about the tole technique and now I'm hooked. I just love all the dimension it creates.

Stamps: My Cuppa' Joe (GinaK Designs)
Ink: Memento Tux Blk, Copic (E53, E55)
Paper: Rose Romance, Urban Prairie PP (Basic Grey)
Others: buttons, Rose Romance ribbon, sewing machine
