CK /PC Sketch, Just Magnolia and Simon Says Challenges

I have another three-fer! The first challenge is the sketch challenge for Creative Keepsakes / Paper Crafts message board forum. There is a group of us who participate on the board that like to challenge each other with challenges. This week the challenge is a sketch which is hosted by Jenny / geminijen. You can find her sketch below. If you love paper crafting then you might want to check it out and join us for some chatting, sharing and lots of fun! We have a fun group of creative ladies.

The second challenge this card is for is the Just Magnolia challenge. This week the challenge is to do paper piecing. I love paper piecing and quite often will paper piece Tilda's outfits. On this card I have paper pieced her dress and the bow in her hair.

The third challenge is for Simon Says and this week Simon Says use pink and brown on your creation. I had a really hard time photographing this card, even took it outside in the sun. I used a really dark brown and it kept looking black in the pictures. Trust me, I have lots of brown and pink on my black!

Supplies Used:
Image: Sweetheart Tilda by Magnolia
Cardstock: Bazzill
Printed Paper: BasicGrey
Ink: Memories
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart butterfly and hydrangea punch
Pearls and rhinestones by Hero Arts
Quick Kutz photo corner die
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. Dress and bow are paper pieced.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will have a chance to check out the amazing creations at CK/PC, Just Magnolia and Simon Says.
