FOUR Challenges!

If I didn't know for certain that my BFF loved me, I'd swear she was trying to drive me crazy! It was her turn to choose the challenges, and she thought it would be great fun for us to make a card that fit these four challenge criteria:
  1. Forest theme (CASology)
  2. Winter birthday (Simon Says Wednesday Challenge)
  3. Using Stickles (Shopping Our Stash)
  4. And use this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

Smiley from Millan.Net

I have to be honest with you, this one WAS a challenge! I first thought of using cute little forest critters, and had even stamped, colored, and fussy-cut them. But I just couldn't get them to work with the sketch. (They are now residing in my Box o' Useful Bits, to be used another day.)

Sooo, anyway, this was the final result, after spending way too much time overthinking it. I think I have a brain cramp.

  1. I think this is so simply beautiful, the stitched detail around the circle sets the image off perfectly.
