1 Card for 5 Challenges!

Why is it that when I make a card for a challenge a few days later a challenge comes up requesting either the image I have used or the Colour Combo? This seems to happen to me quite often, a few days ago I made a card featuring a cake for this challenge over at 365 Cards and now yesterdays challenge features a cake, this cake!

So Day 132 over at 365 Cards is Picture This!

The challenge is to use the photo to inspire your card, whether it be an object, colors, or a theme, how will the photo inspire you?
I used the Cake image as my inspiration and coloured it Brown and Orange, Yum!

My card also fits the requirements of the challenge over at C.R.A.F.T. their challenge #8 is to make a card that is number specific.
This week we would love to see your special AGE/ Anniversary cards, so be it a 18th/ 21st etc birthday or golden Anniversary we would love to see your spin on the challenge.
I made mine for a 16th Birthday!

Moving on to the challenge at Use It! #18

Here is Ann's challenge:
•Add some texture
(felt, flower, velvet ribbon, etc.)
I used Flowers which are embossed plus a fabric flower and 2 different Ribbons
•Use at least 2 punches
My Martha Stewart Border punch and a small flower Punch
•Use paper from your favorite manufacturer.
I used New papers which I fell in love with by Papermania- Antique Cream

Add some pearls as your finishing touch.
I have Pearls!

This week is challenge # 18 at the Creative Card Crew and they want to see Ribbons
I have used 2 different Ribbons

Last but not least is the challenge at Pile It On who want you to use 3 different embellishments and combine this with at least 1 other challenge.
I have Flowers both Paper and fabric, Brad, Butterfly Charm and Pearls and teamed it with 4 other challenges

I decided to use 16 as the age for this card, my thinking was that at this age young women so want to be adults but as I remember from my own 2 Daughters, still have a little bit of being a kid in them. Using this as a guide is why I have teamed the quite grown up papers with the almost cartoon type cake, hope this makes sense?

So here is my card for these challenges- it is a quad card

Here it is closed and this will fit nicely into a DL envelope

Open viewing one side

Now from the other side with room to write your greeting on the large centre panel

and from the top

This is the first time I have made one of these cards so what do you think?

Maz, love your card. I've only recently tried Quad cards and I think they are great - they look quite complex but are actually quite easy and you can do so much with them decoration-wise.
