Three Challenges ...One Card

Today I thought I would try to put three challenges into one card...first, here is my card: (It's hard to see on the photo but the sentiment reads: " Good Friends are like Stars...")

 and the inside: ("You don't always see them, but you know they are always there")

 The challenges are PaperCraft Star Challenge 30 (click here) Scraplift any project on any current PaperCraft Star Design Team Member's  Blogs; The Paper Variety (click here) Friendship Challenge! There is a quote to use or inspire and the last challenge is CropStop Challenge #4 (click here) Make a Good Impression! Use 2 different patterns of embossing.

For PaperCraft Star, I scraplifted Tracy's card from Challenge #29 (click here to see her card). I used the actual quote from The Paper Variety...although, I split it between the front and the inside. For CropStop, I used actually 3 different embossing folders and I wet embossed the star.

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Two shades of Pink, Green and Patterned Paper
Sizzix Flower # 1
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'Vine Swirls
Sizzix Embossing Folder Spring Flowers
Tim Holtz Distress Powder Peeled Paint (Green) (embossed a gold star to green)
Olive Green Chalk
White Sheer Ribbon
Queen and Co Pearls Grass Green Six Pearls Two Large, Two Medium and Two Small
Computer Printed Sentiment Basque 12 in Rose
Mounting Tape

Hope that you like this card. It was fun putting the three challenges together. 

We ended up getting at least 10 inches of snow. It's beautiful to look at, but.....well, the dogs like it...hahaha. Guess it's time to get back outside and shovel some more...woo hoo (not). The plows just finally came down our street...the driveway will be a mess again. Oh well....
