6 in 1 Challenge Card

Good evening all, hope everyone is keeping well.  I've been bust blitzing my craft cave the past couple of days, so it's back to being an organised and tidy place again, can't promise how long it will stay like that mind.  So once my room was all ready I had to go make a card, and mess up my desk again a
The card I have for you fits 6 challenges, not bad considering I only followed the one sketch for this card then had a nosey through my challenges list to see if it would fit anywhere else.  I think I like doing it this way, following one challenge then see where it fits in with others.  Anyway here's my card....

I've been wanting to do an easel card using a different shape for ages, and this one is  I've used a 8 x 8 scalloped cirlce card from Kanban, cut along the crease so I had two halves, one half is the front and the second peice was folded and creased to make the easel base, I wanted the base to be a half circle, and I think it looks pretty ok, what do you think?

The 6 challenges are...

Mojo Monday - Sketch 123

Stamptacular - Pop-Up (I wasn't sure if this was a pop-up but one of the DT cards is an easel card)

Charisma Cardz - Fruity Colours

Allsorts - Hearts and Flowers


Digi Image - Pollycrafts 'Twiddly Wings Climbing'

Papers - My Minds Eye

Colouring Mediums - Copics, Promarkers and Sakura Stardust

Flowers & Buttons - Papermania

Ribbon - from stash

Doodle (faux) Stitching - Whisper Markers

I have been trying to blog hop, but once again I've been having blogger problems with commenting on many blogs, I 've hopped around a few today which I couldn't comment on over the weekend and they have been ok today, so hopefully the problem is now sorted and I'll will be visiting with comments very soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!
