Three Challenges in One

I came across a new Challenge Site recently and I had some spare time to create.  The Play Date Cafe does weekly paper craft challenges and this week they did a Combine Grind Challenge with CASE Study.  So it was two challenges in one.  The challenge was to use the color scheme and to use the card for inspiration.




I also used the sketch from Papercraft Star.  So that's three challenges in one - a first for me! 


 Since I'm working on getting a stock of Tween Boy cards I used the CTMH stamp set X-Treme, paper is BasicGrey Oliver Paper and the tickets are Tim Holtz. I also used Distress Ink on the edges of the paper.  So here is what I did for the challenges.

  3. What a GREAT boy card! I love your bio, too - "a recovering perfectionist" - hee. For us perfectionists, it's hard to put elements at an angle like that. Bravo! Thanks for joining in the fun at CASE Study!
