One Card for another 4 challenges

Happy weekend everyone. After a few days of not doing anything, I managed to finish one card again for 4 challenges. Here are the challenges for using this card:

Friday Sketchers #65
Friday Sketchers #65 - Here is the sketch I used for this card

Copic Color Challenge #26 - Here are the three color requirment and if you don't have all or even any of the colours listed, just use the closest you have - as long as you use at least one Copic Marker you can enter! I happened to have all these three colors..phew!

Allsorts Challenge - Week 14 This week's theme is "In an English Country Garden". This can be interpreted in so many different ways apart from the obvious flowers, which of course we would love to see, but how about teddy bears picnic, afternoon tea, you decide what it means to you - I am so looking forward to coming to visit you to see what you have created.

Stampin for the weekend Challenge #11 - This week's a theme is "Days Gone By", in other words, to create a Vintage style card, remembering that you do have to use a stamped or digi stamped image on your it's all in the way you decorate, distress, vintage-ize (is there such a word) your card or project.

This is my finished card

Closer view on the flowers I layered. I added some gold glitters to match up with the gold trim.

Here is a closer view on the coloring. I colored it with Copic Markers using the foundation of the three colors requirements (R59, BG09 & G99) from the Copic Color Challenge.

This is to show you the thickness of the card. It is quite thick.

I don't do vintage card that often but this card turned out better than I expect it. Since I finished this card and like it so much, I am sure I can sleep well. LOL!

Thank you for visiting my blog and wish you a happy weekend.
