Card Challenges

Over the last few days I've been looking at the different challenge sites that I like and some new ones that I found. At first, nothing was jumping out at me. I haven't been in a very creative mood. I've been focusing on decluttering, organizing and getting ready for school.

After putting the kids to bed I looked at the challenges again and I just got very inspired. So I had to create! The card I made is actually for 4 challenges.

I used two stamp sets from CTMH: X-treme and Shining Star. I used Distress Ink in Fired Brick and Faded Jeans. The stripes were made using a scor-buddy.

Over at Less is More the challenge was use the Colors of Your Nations Flag. I not only used the colors but used the stars and stripes as inspiration. (edited later: I missed posting this challenge by 5 minutes...I need to work on my challenges a little earlier)

At CAS-ual Fridays the challenge was a 2-in-1 challenge with Clean & Simple Stamping. The challenge was to create a clean and simple card using this sketch:

And a new challenge for me is Cards for men. The challenge was Clean & Simple.
