Triple Play on Challenge Day!

Dontcha love it when a plan comes together? I was blurfing around and found a sketch challenge, an inspiration challenge and a recipe challenge that all came together to become my card for today!

I started with the excellent sketch at Card Patterns.

Then, I decided to try out the recipe challenge at Stamping for the Weekend where they were asking for Blue, Buttons and Bling. Neat combo, huh? Next, I saw the Special Day/Event Challenge at Simply Create and I had an idea! I grabbed my Bits and Pieces set and my Relish Reading stamps and got to work! Bits and Pieces has individual words that can be mixed and matched to create very specific sentiments like the one below.

Happy Birthday Girl
Stamps: words from Bits and Pieces plate and girl from Relish Reading set (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: the Goods line (American Crafts)
Cardstock: Brocade Blue and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Black Tuxedo (Memento)
Copics: B21, B23, B24, E02, E07, E09 and E11
Embellishments: 2 blue butterfly-shaped buttons; 3 rhinestone hearts; striped ribbon
Tools: circle cutter (Creative Memories)

Wish your favorite person a great day! Don't forget that the Bits and Pieces mix-and-match sentiment set is on sale at Rogue Redhead Designs for $12.00 (shipping not included) until June 10, 2011!
