3 cards, 3 challenges

A perfect rainy Friday, soup on in the crock pot, and my craft desk ready to go.I love the Mojo Monday sketch challenges, and I always think I'll get it done, but the week seems to fly by. Today, that was the first card I made.
I used Elizabeth craft stickers, be creative tape, glitter ritz warm glitter, spectrum noir markers, MME patterned paper, another patterned paper scrap of unknown origin, and decided it needed no sentiment - I'll be using it as a note card.

My second card was made for #104 Shopping Our Stash challenge - No Patterned Paper
I have great Hero Arts background stamps and I put one to use on this card, along with a 
Unity Stamp set and some die cut hearts using a Simon Says Stamp heart die. 
I wanted the background to look like it was an old love letter and the basic theme 
of the card. It is for hubs!

My third card of the day was for a new to me.  The Muse Card Club Challenge, I know I am late getting on to this one.  It has a great premise, and requires three things of the members:
  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse.
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring

Above is this weeks Muse Card, I liked the blue and yellow colors, the stitched ribbon, the score line above the sentiment and the triple focal images.

Muse Card Club Challenge #20
I used a similar color combination. There are score lines on either side of my ribbon.  I used three focal points across the card front, all white heat embossed on blue cardstock. Sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches. The die for the front panel is also from Simon Says Stamp.  I used a Provo Craft embossing folder to add a bit of texture at the cards top.

Thanks so much for visiting. Have a great weekend.
