Triple Challenge

Do you ever just link from site to site and eventually don't know how you got to where you are and worse than that you didn't save every site you were at and there was one you'd really like to go back to. Today, I was jumping around looking at cards and for challenges and I managed to save a couple sites along my way. So I went back, made some notes and then made this card. It's for three challenges. The first challenge is the Mojo Monday sketch challenge (Mojo94). The second challenge is for Simon Says Challenge to paper piece, this is my favorite technique. I used the MFT stamp set "Girl's Day In" and used MFT summer collection paper to piece the image. The skin was colored with a copic marker. The third challenge is the Pile it On challenge. The basic premise is to use their weekly challenge and at least one more challenge in your project. This week's challenge is to use at least three embellishments. For this card I used Hero Arts pearls on the scalloped circle. a Heidi Swap Bling on the nail polish bottle, orange ribbon and a KaJinkers Jem hanging from the ribbon. My good buddy Eileen gave me a tagger awhile ago and I put it away and forgot about it. I'm glad I remembered it today cause that little white flower is looking mighty cute to me.
I noticed some blinkies on the sites so I'm going to go back and try to get them onto this site. Speaking of gadgets and doohickeys while you're here won't you please click on the free mamogram box, it barely takes any time or effort and you'll be helping a good cause.
