After living through the Simply Betty Challenges 12 Days of Halloween I thought I would try something else I hadn't done before.  I am attempting to enter several challenges with one card.  I noticed quite a few bloggers doing this so I am going to give it a try.  Here is my card:

I tried to incorporate the rules for all of the challenges listed below so I started with the image which had to be a fairy, butterfly or angel.  I found the image online and colored her with Copic markers and added some flower soft to the grass.  I used stickles on her wings for a little sparkle.  I also popped up her body with SU dimensionals.  Those of you who follow my blog know that I have photography & scanner issues.  Once again the picture doesn't show the dimensions very well. 

Next I tried to incorporate the sketch for another challenge so that became my layout.  Then there were some embossing challenges so I embossed the white background with a floral embossing folder from Cuttlebug.  I used the folder for the blue strip on the left also.  Then I put a white strip down the center and added some glitter dots to it.  I used all generic cardstock, then I added a few embellishments and there you have it.

I found another challenge asking for clean and simple so I chose not to include a sentiment.  I felt the card was cleaner without one.  I gave it a good shot I think considering I did it fairly quickly.  I was having trouble with my truck and ended up spending more time at the shop than I had planned.  My poor truck had to remain hospitalized as it was "unsafe" to expensive.

Here is a list of all the challenges I am entering with this card:

1.  2 Sisters Challenge 11 - no designer paper
2.  Flutter By Wednesday challenge #129 - use fairy/angel/butterfly and anything goes
3.  Freshly Brewed Challenges - sketch and anything goes
4.  Incy Wincy Designs #66 - anything goes
5.  Dutch Dare Card Challenges - clean & simple
6.  Craft your Passion Challenges - anything goes
7.  Creative Cottage - #26 embossing
8.  Lexi's Creations - #26 anything goes
9.  C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - #75 dry embossing

Whew!!!! That's a lot to keep track of.  Luck to all and thanks for stopping by.
