3 Challenges in 1

3 challenges in 1 just about sums this week up.
I love keeping up with all my fave challenge blogs, but it's been a very busy week in our household and we have a very busy weekend planned too. So this card started off as the loveliest challenge blog : It's sketch number 3 from Kazan this week.
I've had the sketch in my head all week and knew what I wanted to do, so whilst the kids had their tea last night and before the hairdresser arrived, I quickly made this card for our little friend Ethan who is 6 today.
In the back of my mind I then knew that this would also qualify for the DCM challenge this week, which is to make a card in under 30mins. As I knew exactly what I was going to do, managed to knock this one out rather speedily.

And earlier on in the week I received the most gorgeous pack from Emma at Sassy Crafts. to play and display with.
It included scrummy Dreamstreet papers, 3 bugs ribbons and blooms. I've used some of the papers and ribbons on this card. Very easy to use these papers. xx
