Three Days ...

... that's how long it took me to make this card!! Sheesh!! I initially started this card last Wednesday for the sketch challenge over on SCS (SC268). Started it, then ran out of time 'cause I had to go to work (dang!). I looked at the technique challenge (TLC258) on Thursday to see if perhaps I could incorporate IT into the card I had in my mind for the sketch challenge (I had the rose mostly done at this point). The technique challenge was to incorporate ORANGE into our creations. ORANGE??!!?? What??? I already had a rose that was Ruby Red, Riding Hood Red and Pretty in Pink ... hmmm .... so I started sponging a bit of orange onto it ... had a CRAZY day Thursday with NO time, so I didn't get it done that day, either!!

Friday ... the limited supplies challenge (LSC260) was to add some ribbon and use a border punch to your card. Okay, THAT I could handle, but then I was back to the sketch challenge and trying to figure out HOW I was gonna incorporate all of the stuff from the other two challenges AND make it work with the sketch ... hmmmm ... I FINALLY was able to complete this baby. Wasn't too sure about the orange, but at least I got 'er done!!
