Three Challenges in One!

I have continued to fall behind in my attempt to get all my PTI princess challenges done; mostly because I am just not very good at challenges. Anyway today I am trying to do challenge #4 (scoring- read about it here), challenge #5 CASEing (read about it here), challenge #6 all neutrals- no color (read about it here). Here's what I came up with. I am not completely happy with it, but it will do.

This cute card was made by Diane. I am CASEing her. She makes beautiful cards, be sure you check out her blog. I decided to really focus on the scoring. I love the way she set off her focal point by those scored lines. In my card below you can see I scored around my focal point as well. I wish I had done a double score like hers though. The scoring also satisfied challege 4...so yay! Finally, Challenge 6; using only neutrals. Boy this one was tough for me! I love color! I went with basic black and white. The base is made with PTI true black. I stamped it with Waltzingmouse Stamps polka dot stamp from Off Beat Backgrounds. I used watermark ink. I scored out the box for my focal point and then outlined my score with stickles, black stickles. (Yes, I own nearly every color). I stamped the sentiment in white and set it off with two black rhinestones. The big flower is made by MakingMemories. Its from their Garden Party Line. I got a whole bunch of them at BigLots for a buck awhile back. I love a good deal. They are self adhesive too which is cool. I added a black rhinestone to the middle. Photographing this card was a nightmare, I am not a photographer!! Anyway it is what it is. I have some better eyecandy coming tomorrow. Until then, thanks for stopping in!

It is not a bad card. I love the flower. A big red button in the middle of it with that rhinestone would make it 'pop'!
