How Many Challenges…

How many challenges can I complete with a single card? Well, today I completed a card that works for 4 different challenges:

  • Friday Sketchers
  • Stamp Something – Black and White and one other color
  • Stampin’ for the Weekend – Please Mr. Postman
  • Penny Black – Embossing


The image is Penny Black’s Love Note. The patterned papers are from a Making Memories Black Tie pad. I embossed the red mat and the solid black strip using the Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots folder. Finally, I replaced the flowers on the Friday Sketchers sketch with a vellum envelope and some punched hearts.

I think that I combined the 4 challenges pretty effectively. What do you think.
