A trio of challenges...

Hi all! Hope everyone is enjoying their spring break - well, at least it's spring break for us! I'm so grateful to have some time to do some spring cleaning and STAMPING! ;)
I made this card for three challenges. One is today's color challenge over on SCS. I haven't posted a card on the same day as a challenge since last summer, I think! The other challenge is MFT's weekly sketch challenge. And the final challenge is Joanne B's blog challenge. You had to pick three things from a list she gave and my 3 are faux stitching, kraft paper and twine. This is my first Fred Bear stamp from MFT and let me tell ya, he was SO fun to color! I colored him with an aquapainter using suede and baja inks. I used copics for the grass, a gold copic spica pen for the flower centers and a white gel pen for the flower petals. Fortunately, I was able to use some of my new twine, also from MFT, and their newest border die, which I think is called the dizzy border, but it seems to be sold out. My mini rolled rose has liquid pearls in the center because I didn't have the right size pearl bling to put in there. I decided to not put a sentiment just yet, because I'm finding myself short on birthday cards lately.
Thanks for stopping by!
