Some favourite papers

This card is for the Truly Scrumptious challenge 16 sketch, although I'm afraid I didn't use three stamps (in fact, I didn't use any), so I might be revisiting this sketch to do this additional part of the challenge.

Favourite papers and colours are the theme of this week's Stamp Something, so I'm linking for that.

The card is also good for:

The Color Dare
34: certainly blush chocolate

Cupcake 58: distressing techniques - I distressed the embossed Happy Birthday sentiment with an ink pad.

Created by hand: texture - the embossing, the flowers etc.

BG 4: embossing - the embossed HB sentiment is a cuttlebug folder. The BG papers I used are sugared and porcelain.

Today's challenge on 365 (day 206): Tuesday triplets - Three is the thing on this challenge. I want to see three of everything - anything you want, but if you have one blossom then you need to add 2 more - make sense? The only thing that can be just one is the sentiment. I used 3 patterned papers, 3 flowers, 3 buttons, 3 brads, three spiky circles (using nestabilities).

'Dress' card

This card uses the sketch on My Creative Clutter for their Saturday challenge:

The Inkadinkado dress stamp is one by Dawn Houser - I think it's beautiful. I stamped with rilliance Pearlescent crimson and then lightly water-brushed. Papers are BG sugared.

(I've just realised how much my scanner glass needs cleaning - the marks really show up on the white!).

As well as My Creative Clutter, this card is good for these challenges:

Stampavie and more 61: think pink
C.R.A.F.T. 17: pink and brown
Our Creative Corner colour combo: light pink, hot pink, white, chocolate chip

Christmas Serendipity

Day 198 on 365 cards was: make a mosaic.

I've used some serendipity squares that I've had in my Christmas bits box since last year - I thought they were just right to use for this challenge - and that's a quick Christmas card made (didn't take long at all because the squares had already been done). The background paper is PM a wonderful Christmas time:
