A Mish Mash of Challenges

But hopefully not a mish-mash card! I combined several challenges for this one, starting with the colors from Color Chef which were light blue, cream, brown and red. I knew the paper I wanted to use but was stuck for a layout so I used the sketch from CPS. Also this week, I found a new to me challenge called Rosie and Dee and their challenge this week is to use two squares and a rectangle. Other challenges:
Die Cuts R Us: use any medium (I used embossing, glitter on the cupcake and water color pencils)
Flourishes: Mix it up (I used tearing/embossing/glitter)
Lots of challenges, I know. Despite that, my card turned out to be pretty simple.

What I used for this card:
Paper: DCWV "The Stack 6"
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo "Humorous Birthday"
Ink: Stampabilities brown pigment ink
Coloring: SU! Watercolor pencils
Embossing Folder: Spots and Dots
Ribbon and glitter from my stash
