Five Challenges.....Woo Hoo!!!!!

Hello Everyone: It's time for me to make another one layer card, I really enjoy this one because I'm going to link it up to the One Layer Simplicity Challenge , the AAA Cards "Love Me Like You Do" challenge,  the STAMPlorations "CASEplorations" challenge, were we are asked to CASE Anita , the Share the Joy at Taylored Expressions, which is asking us to tell to whom this card is going so, I will tell you that it's going all the way to Lake of the Ozarks, MO. for a dear Triathlon friend and incredible supporter through out my humble career as a Triathlete, and the Uniko "Anything Goes" with an option of "LOVE". I've never tried participating in so many challenges with one card but I found this blogs through friends who've commented on mine so I thought why not give this a try. I love all of this leaps of faith I'm taking, such fun.  Here is my card.


This is a one layer card made out of a 10 1/2" x 4 7/8" panel of Canson water color paper scored at 5 1/4". I stamped the image with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with the aqua painter and SU markers in Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Soft Suede. The sentiment and the hearts (from a retired SU set called Baby Bundle are stamped with Regal Rose ink.



Those of you who know me know that I love the House Mouse little mice. This adorable and endearing image is called Sweet Kiss, I just love the sweet expression on the face of this true friends.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


This are the banners that inspired my card.

 

I want to thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
