Cute Card Thursday meets Daring CardMakers meets Sketch Saturday...

This week has been a little more crazy than normal, with deadlines fast approaching so I have combined three challenges with this card.....I think that is a record for me....LOL
I have used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and they have a fab Stampin' Up prize donated by former DT member Emma.....well worth taking part. I have also used Cute Card Thursdays "Create a Scene" and Daring CardMakers "Give it some Heart". The stamps are all Magnolia (three of them) and they have been coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Frayed Burlap (Hair)
Peeled Paint/Shabby Shutters/Worn Lipstick (Clothing)
Fired Brick (Mushroom)
Frayed Jeans/Dried Marmalade (Background)
Weathered Wood (Shadow around main image)
The papers are Basic Grey and October Afternoon, and I have used Making Memories ribbon, Fancy Pants buttons and a heart pin from my stash. The sentiment is one from a set by ScrappyCat, and of course I used my gorgeous scalloped punch from Stampin' Up too.

So pop on over to Cute Card Thursday Blog, Daring CardMakers Blog and not forgetting Sketch Saturday.....so much inspiration, so little time...LOL

Today Georgia and I are visiting my Dad, Sister and her family for Sunday lunch...Dad is a fab cook, and tonight I have a deadline on some work and crafting....so will not get a chance to colour.....unless I finish everything else first of course.....
