3 in 1 Oh so yummy!

Hello and happy Friday!!

Today's card I made with 3 challenges in mind. First I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. Beautiful sketch! I flipped mine around. Second, I really wanted to participate in the Creatively Cute Blogger Challenge this time, because I have been so bad and haven't been doing them!! (sorry my CCB friends). This challenge is open to everyone, you can find info on Jackie's blog. She is the hostess and it is an inspiration challenge! Third, I wanted to enter it to this weeks Stamp Something challenge-shape somethings- and I sure have lots of shapes on this card!
Ok, onto my card. I used the cute Sammy Squirrel eats strawberries image from the Digital Stamp Oasis It was colored using copics. Papers are basic gray, kiwi kiss, whisper white, riding hood red and bashful blue prints designer paper by SU. The sentiment is from the SAB set "Yummy". I masked the other words off because all I wanted is "Yummy". Swirls are made with a sizzix die, flowers are prima and the butterflies were punched out with my brand new Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Below is my inspiration picture.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and if you like to use digital images be sure to check out the new digital tuesday challenge. Below is my inspiration picture. I chose the colors that I see in the picture.
