4 in 1 challenge card!!!

I decided to do 4 challenges in one today. Firstly I used the sketch from CPS. What a pretty sketch. Then I did the Pink Elephant Color Challenge using Pink, Brown and Green. I hopped on into the Flourishes Challenge to use a sentiment for the card and lastly 365 cards day #6 Flashy Friday Challenge. So here is the CPS sketch followed by my card. For the CS, I used Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet collection (which I absolutely LOVE!!!). I cut out one of the swirls to add on later. For the center, I used a scallop and regular Nesties Oval, then stamped the Just a Note sentiment by Hampton arts, in Nick Bantock Chartreuse leaf. I used clear embossing powder on top to give it that finished look.
Then I used the same ink and my stylus tool to add a little color on the edges of the ovals. Adding the swirl I had cut out earlier above the sentiment and added some pink rhinestones in the swirl shape to amplify the curve of the papers. Then to finish the card off, I added a beautiful satin ribbon in the same Chartreuse Green, tied it in a bow and it's ready to mail.

Hope you all enjoyed the card. Don't forget there are just a few days left on my blog candy, so leave a comment on the candy post. Thanks for stopping by and
Happy Crafting!
