Two for the price of one (challenges that is)

Today's card is a result of combining two challenges.  I spotted a couple that I thought that I could combine, so I gave it a go.

Firstly, here is a sketch that I saw on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog - FTL236

and then I saw the challenge on SU-Only Challenges called  SUO 68- Just stick to one color -please! As the name implies the challenge is to stick to mono-chrome or just one colour plus a neutral. Because I was combining the two challenges I decided to use a blue in the form of Marina Mist.

Here's a photo of my efforts

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Petite Pairs and Papillon Potpourri
Card stock : Whisper White and Marina Mist
Ink : Marina Mist
Accessories : Paper Doily Sizzlets L, Sponge, Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches, Basic Rhinestones

I am off to meet a friend for lunch later but before I go I need to make her a quick birthday card. Hopefully I'll remember to take a photo before I go, and I'll post it on the blog tomorrow.

As always, please feel free to leave a comment.
