Magnolia's Kind Birthday Wishes

Today I'm participating in four different challenges and a contest! The first challenge was to do The Little Stamp Shoppe's "August Challenge: Vintage or Shabby Chic". The way I incorporated this theme into my card was to choose an almost old fashioned looking Magnolia stamp, then I roughed a few paper edges up. I slid my edge distresser along all of the layers of brown paper and the piece of light pink behind my little Magnolia character.

The second challenge was over the Just Magnolia blog and this week they wanted everyone to do something with "Ribbons and Bows". For this I ran the light pink ribbon down the left side of the card and tucked the edges neatly behind the light green layer of paper. By the way, all the paper I used on this card are from Die Cuts With a View.

The third challenge I participated in was Papertake Weekly's 22nd sketch challenge. Here's the sketch:

The Fourth challenge was over at Roses on Paper's blog where they're putting on a "Punches" challenge this week! I added some cute little punched leaves under my flower for this challenge. I had gotten this great Martha Stewart punch not that long ago and I hadn't gotten around to using it, so was glad this challenge caused me to go through my punch drawer to figure out what would work best on this card! :)

Last, but not least, I entered the Simon Says contest over at Paper Craft Planet with my card! The contest's rules were to use the colors: light brown, light green, blushy pink, coral pink (optional), and white (optional). I thought those colors turned out looking wonderful together!

Well, that's all for now! Thanks for looking! :o)
