Embracing Life with Friends

Wow my computer is moving slowly this morning....may mean I'll have to hurry through my day.
My first card this morning encompasses quite a few challenges....
Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge - shown in the thumbnail.
Corrosive Challenge - An Asian Themed Card
Saturday Spotlight - Clean it Up! (Clean edges)
SCS Clean and Simple - A Square Card
SCS Inspiration Challenge - a Figure Skating outfit

I used Embrace Life and Circle Circus to create the card. The colours are Ballet Blue, Gable Green and White.











My little Shy Bear from Squigglefly has a few challenges too.
Mojo Monday - Sketch
SCS Technique Challenge was to create Faux Nesties. I know creating circles is pretty easy with punches - but I did have to hand cut the black one in order to get that layer - not very even!
Colour Chef - Kraft, Black and Blue
Squigglefly - using borders.

That's about it for today. Hope you are enjoying a day with friends! Thanks for dropping by.

What great cards! Bold for the first and soft for the second. I don't think your black layer is uneven and I love how it accentuates that cute Shy Bear!

Thanks for joining us for the Squigglefly weekly challenge.
