One Card, FOUR Challenges :)

I get so excited when I can somehow combine one card design into multiple challenges :) Being a busy mama of two I do not have as much time to craft as I would like some days and so being able to do this makes me one happy gal! 

So for this one card which I have made for a client of mine who is due tomorrow with her little boy I have used the following challenges...

The Sweet Shop (sketch):

Create with Connie & Mary (colours):

CAS-ual Fridays (sentiment):

365 Cards (theme):

It has been a while since I have made a twist easel card but thought this was the perfect sketch for one! I have also decided to enter this card in the Guest Design Team challenge at 365 Cards which requested we add at least 3 elements to our card. I chose Punch Art, Dry Embossing, Bakers Twine :) 

Take the time to let your creativity bloom!
