The challenge for Penny Black is called "3, 2, 1". These challenges require you to use three of one item, two of another, and one of a third on your card. In this case, it was three brads, two ribbons and one flower. One of the ribbons is tied around the rectangular piece on the left side of the card. The second one is tied through the button in the center of the flower. The three brads are pretty obvious. :)
The sketch challenge has the sentiment on the lower right side of the card, but I decided to place my flower there instead and stamped the sentiment on the image.
This card started out as yellow and green, but I wasn't feelin' it. I switched it to red and yellow - one of my favorites, which you can probably tell from some of my other cards. I did keep some green accents in there to pick up the green in the paper. The DP I used is from one of my very old DCWV paper stacks. I have so much paper! I'm trying to find uses for some of my older paper. Hopefully, my cards won't start looking "dated."
I enjoyed making this card. It's cute and spring-y. Thanks for stopping by to take a look at it.
