Tuesday FIVE - fer!!!!!

Inspiration photo for this project ... a spring time, blooming pink cherry tree in my backyard :)

I was completely *inspired* by my stampy friend, Melissa, yesterday when she let us peek at a project she made by combining some of her favorite weekly challenges ... FIVE to be exact! I'm usually a one-thing-at-a-time type of gal ... two at the most, so this was INDEED quite a challenge for me! This boggled my brain for a while (not a hard thing to do most days!) as I sat there on the floor of my design room with approximately 12 current challenges in front of me -- which to choose? Which will coordinate together? Which rules state 'only use one challenge'? Which allow multiple challenges in comination? Oh ... the thought that went into this sweet card :)

Here's my line up:

* I started by being inspired by Melissa - member of The Shabby Tea Room Design Team and also inspired by the beautiful pink cherry tree blooming in my backyard this week!

#1 - Pile It On - make a card using pastel colors
#2 - KL Stampin' & Scrappin' - sketch challenge
#3 - The Pink Elephant #58 - make a card with a spring theme
#4 - Paper Sundaes - create a multi-fold card with an Easter or Spring theme
#5 - Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Sage Shadow & Blush Blossom
I simply {heart} how this card turned out ... how about you? Now your turn!
