3 Challenges In One!

I barely can do two challenges at a time but somehow I've managed 3 in one!

Challenge #1: Quixotic Challenge - Heavy Metal.  Behind Amelia is an embossed piece of pink foil (PS: Big, huge pain in the rear to work with!)

Challenge #2:  CA&F Ephemera. I don't have a lot of extra stuff lying around because it drives me crazy and I toss it all.  However,  the pink foil is a leftover from an art kit of Brooklyn's that I repurposed for my card.

Challenge #3: Sketch challenge at CPS!  This was a super fun sketch to work with.

Note to other adventurous souls: Foil is hard to photograph!!! 

Slightly better...

TGF Image - Oliver and Amelia Buddies (Amelia)
Cuttlebug embossing folder - tiny hearts
Nestabilities - Labels 12

I love the foil on this, I love the foil but your right about it being a pain. So now I gotta know, where did you get your water mark with Eddie? Adorable, I must have. :)

Well look at you and all those challenges you were able to combine! Two is usually my max too so I'm always impressed to see more, especially when the resulting card is as cute as this one turned out! And the foil may be hard to photograph but I think you did a really good job of capturing its shine! :)
