3 Challenges in 1 ...

Happy Ash Wednesday to you All!!!

I'm running short on time this week so today I have completed 3 challenge on 1 card. They are: today's Sketch Challenge over on SCS ... today's Color Challenge on the Color Throwdown Blog and this past Saturday's Our Creative Corner Challenge to use a tag on your creation.
The colors for today are Kiwi Kiss, Not Quite Navy and Bashful Blue. As you can see by the layout, inchies were a perfect choice for today's sketch challenge so I chose to use the Inkadinkado (butterflies & birds) set which I've had for some time now and had yet to get inky. They worked perfectly! My sentiment comes from the Crafty Secrets (bird lover's) set and was made in tag form using my rectangle Nestabilities. My background was created using the Stampin' Up crosshatch stamp. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I inked it first using Old Olive (don't have kiwi kiss ink yet!) then overlayed here & there with Not Quite Navy ink. I used Versafine black ink for the inchies and Not Quite Navy ink for my sentiment. My only embellishments here are the rafia and 1 Making Memories blue brad. Oh yea, I did use a SU watercolor turquoise pencil & blender pen to color in the eggs.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Hope the sun is shining where you are today!!
