3 Challenges - 1 card

Today's card card was made with 3 challenges in mind. First I used the gorgeous sketch from Sketch saturday. For the Dare U 2 digistamp you have to use gingham and stitching or your card and send your card to post-pals to brighten a sick child's face, and the card also fits the theme on Cute Card Thursday, make a card that cheers someone up or makes someone's day. I love when I can combine challenges.
For my card I used the digital image "Susie squirrel in the rain" from the Digital Stamp Oasis.
[There is a sale going on right now, get 4 images for the price of 2, plus you get to choose the images.
(ok, commercial over LOL)]

The image was colored with copics and cut out. I colored just the flower a second time and adhered it with dimensionals.The grass was made by simply tearing.
I found that designer paper in my scrapbook tote that hasn't been touched for a long time! Other papers used are creamy caramel, kiwi kiss, basic black and GP white. The kiwi kiss and caramel papers were embossed with the big kick and cuttlebug folders.
I embellished with prima flowers, brads, gingham ribbon and did stitching around the edges. The sentiment is from SU's retired set "vases in vogue. I punched it out with SU's oval punches.
I hope you like today's card.
And be sure to also check out this week's digital tuesday challenge "Thank a teacher" and play along for chance to win some free digis.
Plus, the new creatively cute blogger challenge this time around is "something old and someting new" . There will be a price too.
Have a fun day!!
