One card, two challenges.

I love it when I can make one card and enter it into 2 challenges.  This week, I decided to play along with The Paper Players challenge which is to make a CAS card with an emphasis on Spring.  I am also playing along with The Challenge.

Here is the card I came up with.

Yesterday when I went to One Crazy Stamper in Bolton, I bought 2 new dies by Memory Box - Tulip Tops and Twisty Stalk.  As I love tulips and as tulips bloom in the spring, I thought it would fit both challenges. The card base is dark pink glitter card stock and the dies were cut from glitter card stock as well.  The sentiment which was stamped onto a white card stock banner with Heidi Swapp Ink - Rose is by Taylored Expressions Stamp Set - Take a Spin.  I also used SU's Framed Tulips embossing folder on white card stock to frame the main panel with the dies.  I like this card and it will go into my card stash.  I intend to finish the inside with the same embossing folder on white card stock to either stamp or write my message to the recipient.  I might also add another die cut tulip to the inside.

I made a card in January which would have fit The Challenge perfectly and it can be seen here.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
