3 in 1 - "WOW" - TGF Color Challenge - Cute Card Thursday - Metal Mania, and Friday Sketchers

Now THAT title is a mouth full!
But I can't believe that I was able to get
all three challenges incorporated into one card!
I just LOVE it when that's a possiblility,
and this week it was!  YIPEE!

So for this weeks challenges on

"Cute Card Thursday's Blog"
"Friday Sketchers Blog"

The Greeting Farm's
"Farm Fresh Friday Challenge"

I got busy working on this card this morning,
and was having a blast doing it!

So I started out with the sketch from
the Friday Sketchers Challenge.

I decided to turn it upside down,
because it just felt like a backwards kind of day!  LOL
and then.... and I just have to tell you that the little
heart shaped images that The Greeting Farm showed today,
telling us what colors to use just really caught my eye.
They inspired me and made me want to putthose very same colored hearts on my card!
Talk about a wacky thought, but hey,
that wacky thought actually worked for this card!

I created my own DP there behind that precious little Mommy to be,
I used stamps from TGF's "Oh Baby" set, and then colored
them in, I thought it was the perfect little accent for
this "expecting" card.
The sentiment is also from the "Oh Baby" set.
I know it's hard to see, you might have to look closely,
but there is actually a baby bottle charm hanging from that flower.
This of course gives me the "Metal" that I needed for this weeks
Cute Card Thursday Challenge.  Oh, and I have two brads on the
sentiment as well.

Soooo, did I use metal?  CHECK...
did I follow the sketch?   CHECK....
did I use all 3 TGF colors?    CHECK....
I'm good to go.... 
What a fun time I had combining all three challenges.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
