4 Challenges in 1....

This is the maximum amount of challenges that
I have ever entered for one card.
So firstly I want to mention what challenges they are.

Roses on Paper
Just Magnolia
Old Magnolia
Truly Scrumptious

First: Roses on Papers challenge this week is to combine challenges, plus add flowers. So the idea is to find another challenge, whether it be a sketch, color challenge or any other sort of challenge, and combine the two challenges, AND make sure to add flowers. Of course we still have to use the RoP approved stamps. Well.... My card fits this catagory for sure.

Second: Just Magnolia's challenge was to use "Paper Piecing" which is a technique that I actually had not done in quite a while, so I was definitely due for a card using that technique. Obviously the image has to be a "Magnolia" image. Well..... My card fits this catagory as well.

Third: Old Magnolia is a challenge blog that I just happened to stumble upon the other day, and boy was I glad I did. It really gets you digging into those older Magnolia's. They post an image of the stamp they want you to use, and you must use THAT stamp. I thought it was pretty cool, so I decided to join in that challenge as well. It helps too, because so many times we get those newer stamps, and tend to put the older ones aside. Not anymore, not when participating on this challenge blog. Well..... once again, my card fits this catagory.

Fourth: Truly Scrumptious has a sketch for us to follow, and so I did just that, and followed the awesome sketch there. Not only that but my DP's are "TRULY" Scrumptious! LOL, and well.... My card fits this catagory too....

Obviously I thought this was a "Hum Dinger" of a challenge
being able to actually combine 4 challenges into 1.
I thought it would be harder than it actually was.
It all just seemed to fit together.

I have to say that the thing that I had the MOST fun doing,
was paper piecing Tilda's dress out of Christmas Gumdrop paper.
I LOVED THAT, and those stocking, I made sure to stamp
just so, on the gumdrops in order to get the white dots.
Tis "Truly Scrumptious Indeed"

Adding those flowers, was great fun, and if you only knew
They were the last 3 poinsettia flowers that I own.
I guess I had better get stocked back up before the holidays.

Lots of DCWV paper scraps were used,
Flowers that I had gotten from Summer at "Roses On Paper"
ribbon from my scraps, and copics to color my sentiment and Tilda's face & hair
oh, and the red parts of the candy cane too.
The rest is just Paper Paper Paper! =)

I had a BLAST with these challenges!

Oh, I almost forgot to add the picture of my card! LOL
Here it is!
