A 3 for 1 !!!!!

I am running out of time this week so I have combined three challenge into 1 card!! I really don't like doing that just because that is 2 less cards to make but since school started I just don't have the time I thought I would have!! (Plus I am starting work on Saturday!! ~ Just on Sat. mornings but I have to be there @ 4am UGH!!)

Anyway I have used the Pretty in Pink from CCT to get my color scheme, the layout of the card is from a sketch by Katharina for PTW and I used some embossing on one of the panels for the Tilda and Co. weekly challenge. (FYI ~ to be entered in for the prize you cannot combine the challenge at Tilda and Co. unless it is a sketch challenge!!)
As soon as I seen the sketch at PTW it looked like, to me anyways, that the panel running horizontal was a flap so I made my card open up there and I put my Happy birthday behind it!!

Paper: MME
Stamps: Magnolia, Hero Arts
Inks: distressed inks, Archival jet black, glitter pen (of course)
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Micheals, Flower ~ Prima, buttons ~ stash. Wish ~ cuttlebug

Well thanks for stopping by!! I am glad I got most of my mowing done! It is 90 here and feels so muggy!! I think it is the hottest day of the summer!! And go figure the kids are in school!!!

Have a great night:)

Oh Kathy this is so sweet and girly, love it all, great colours and layout and beautifully coloured image as usual, best of luck with the job, but 4am are you sure!!!!!!!
I am like you I don't like to combine challenges because I just enjoy making cards, but times must I suppose. Anyway honey have a good evening
