3 in 1 Challenge Card

I try not to combine challenges too much as I know it's a bit naughty and some challenges don't like it, but I really don't have the time anymore to enter my favourite challenges each week individually. I do the challenges for my own personal enjoyment and I feel it's better to support the challenge blogs by entering even if it is combined rather than not entering at all. Another reason I don't combine very often is I'm not very good at I see a challenge theme and my mind gets buzzing with ideas for that challenge only. But if I want to do more challenges I must try and get better at combining. Combining this card luckily didn't take too much
I have followed the fabulous sketch over on Sketch & Stash, I really feel bad about neglecting this challenge blog and especially after being one of their guest designers, I'm really sorry girls, I hope you'll forgive me. My card also fits this weeks challenges over on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which is 'Spots & Stripes' and Creative Card Crew which is 'Polka Dots'.

The image is Pollycrafts Twiddly Wings - Hearts, I won the whole set earlier this week on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog, so thats my new item. I've coloured her using copics, promarkers and a little touch of sakura stardust applied with a waterbrush to a her wings, then chalked the background. Mounted image onto yellow tones glitter card. The papers are Papermainia, the sequin flowers are from my stash and I've applied Anita's tiny gems to the flower centres.
I've been doing well with catching up on my blog hopping this week but unfortunately there are still some blogs I can't load without everything freezing up. Some have righted themselves over the past week so hopefully the others will soon be sorted too. So again, if I've not been to visit you for ages then your blog is one of those blogs I'm having problems with, so I'm really sorry and I hope I can catch up with you soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog and all comments are much appreciated if you have the time to leave one xx

p.s I always try to combine,, it's impossible to enter all the ones you like if you don't ! I think most challenges don't mind,, the Simon Says one encourages it !! :-)

It's a great card Joanne, I love the colours you've used & image is gorgeous. I don't think there's anything wrong with combining challenges, if the challenge allows it - but I'm not brilliant at it either - especially more than two!

Diana said...

This is a GREAT (!) card. I love combining challenges.
There are just so many great challenges out there that I want to participate in, I just can't pick ONLY 7 to participate in each week.
There are probably 5 or 6 challenges each day that I like... I never manage to participate in EVERY challenge I want to, but combining helps me get to most of them!

It is just gorgeous Joanna I have those images but haven't put them to good use yet you have done a fabulous job with this one love the design and colours and well done for combining the three I do agree it is getting harder to do all the lovely challenges individually. I think it's is better to do one for several than none.
