Challenge time!

I took several challenges this weekend and combined them into a single card. And the best part is these challenges helped me design a card I wanted to make to congratulate my son on a job well done. I got nowhere designing a card for him on my own until it all fell together with these challenges--like it was meant to be!

The Dynamic Duos challenge #5 decided the colors-- Stampin Up's Island Indigo and Real Red.

Then came the Paper Players Theme challenge #98--Summertime.

Retrosketches #14 provide the structure.

I am pretty pleased with my card. I used a Stampin Up 2012 sale-a-bration set, Sprinkled Expressions. The resulting card is clean and simple, perfect for a young adult--- and just the card I was looking to give my son. I love it when a plan comes together!

Stamping is fun!
