In a creative way of course!!

I wanted to make a card for the Sketch and Stash debut challenge and I thought I could fit some other challenges in around it too.

This is the sketch from Sketch and Stash:


You also need to use new or unused stash for this challenge - no problems there then!

I used the colour challenge on Our Creative Corner which was to use 2 blues and 1 neutral.

I also tried the Spoonful of Sugar challenge which is paper piecing. I've never done this before so I hope what I've done is correct.

So here's my card


I've turned the sketch by 90 degrees. My new stash is my "Reflection" stamp from Pollycraft. Also the flower which is papermania that I bought in the MAC pound shop. Also the label nestibilities set which I used is new.

The clothes on the elf are paper pieced using DCWV paper from the "Rockstar" and "Once Upon a Time" stacks. And the rest is coloured with H2O's and distress inks (one of which is also new!)

I embossed the strip down the card with my floral fantasy embossing folder which I have since discovered makes the card fit 2 other challenges!! High Hopes challenge is dry embossing and the Cuttlebug challenge is to use your favourite folder - which this is!

That must be a record!! 5 challenges in one!

Here's the inside of the card


Another card that I thoroughly enjoyed making!

I hope you liked it too.

~Great card and you've used my favourite Pollycraft stamp too. Oh I love this girl and I haven't bought her yet - I really must send for her.

Thank you for joining the Cuttlebug Challenge and I do hope you'll join in again next week.
