Patchwork of Friends

I finally sat down and planned out a card to enter in to several challenges. I've been meaning to try this method for quite awhile, and it was lots of fun! I absolutely love the way this card turned out - cheerful dp, a different embellishment (for me), and some cardstock I haven't used in quite awhile!

I started out with just a sentiment, and built my whole card around it. It's from Simply Sweet, the July monthly mix from Lizzie Anne Designs. I think this is a great saying, and it's so true!

I went over to the Pile It On blog and cruised their list of Sunday Challenges. Here is what I used: The Sweetest Thing's Sunday Sketch Challenge #77, Sentimental Sunday's Challenge #11 - to use a clear element and a sentiment on my card, Paper Sundae's Challenge #26 - to use lots of layers on my card, and Paper Maniac's "Do What You Love" challenge - to use a recycled element on my card (for this card, the recycled elements are the clear button, which came from the inside of an old coat, and the ribbon scraps - which were all leftovers!).

I had so much fun participating in all of these challenges! I'm definitely doing this again soon :) Don't forget that it is release week over at InStyle Stamps. Head over to the blog to check out all of the amazing images being showcased everyday this week (a new image every few hours!)
