PB blogoversary and other challenges

Penny Black saturday challenge are celebrating their one year blogoversary on saturday. The theme is "celebrations" and there are a lot of great prizes to win :)

I have made a card that took forever. It just didn't want to get done. I also wanted to incorporate as many challenges as I could and I think I managed to get 4 or 5 in there.

I used a sketch that was quite hard to work with. It's from papertake weekly. They are having a guest DT spot and I just had to apply :)

Stamp with fun had "dots" for their challenge and I thought it was so perfect when I found this Penny Black stamp in my stash. I also wanted to get a colourscheme and got it from the promarker challenge blog. I used the challenge for 21/07 - Lime Green & Rose Pink. Isn't it just perfect for the frog?

I'm also applying for this weeks everybody art challenge. The theme was "happy birthday". They also have a guest DT spot available. I'm hoping to join. And even though this might not be my best work I think it's quite different with the cut out text and presents.
And finally I actually could join cute card thursday too. Their theme was "tag".

I thought the card was disastrous in the beginning but as I worked on it it turned out perfectly fine. I especially like the glitter I added on the ribbon at the end. Glitter makes everything beautiful, am I right? ;)

LOL, I got a tip that I could use this card for the Simon says stamp challenge. I'm a bit confused about the rules on this blog, it says: "please do not link creations that have been posted prior to the day the of the current challenge." Does it mean I shouldn't use a card that's posted before they announce their challenge or I can't post until the last day of the challenge? I'm a bit confused here. Anyhow, I'm linking this card too :)

So how many challanges was that, lol.
It was quite fun, but I don't think I will be doing it too often. I like making one card for each challenge (unless it's a sketch or colour combo). I think too much about the challanges instead of the card itself.

p.s sorry to confuse you but what we mean is that you cannot add a card to our current challenge that you had already put on your blog before the day our challenge started, eg you can't add a card you made 2 weeks ago !! Are you with me ?? :-) x x
