Four Challenges in one

Boy it sure feels good to have a card to post. I am going to have to find time to craft now that school is starting. I leave for school at 6:45 AM and I get home at 5:45 PM. By the time I get dinner cleaned up I am ready for bed. So I hope if you are a follower that you don't give up on me. Please keep stopping by to let me know how I am doing. I get a lot of encouragement from your kind words.
This card went together pretty quick. It helps when you have a sketch and the colors to follow the rest is pretty easy. The colors are dusty durango, bermuda bay, and soft suede. The DP paper is from Making Memories called Just Chillin. I used desert sand and rich cocoa Memento ink to stamp the sentiment which is from a CTMH set.
The color are for Color Throw Down and Stef Hughes color challenge #1. Stef is a lot of fun. If you haven't been to her blog check it out. The sketch I followed is for Mojo Monday. The challenge for Pile It On is a card for a boy. This might be a stretch but I would send it to my sons even with the butterfly and flower. They apperciate nature! The colors make it a boy card. What do you think? Would you send it to a guy?
Thanks for stopping,

I love this card Linda those colours are fabulous I adore that image it makes me feel a bit like Autumn is on it's way which it is and I do love that time of year. I will always pay you a visit because I enjoy it and seeing your lovely creations is a treat for me. I realise how busy you must be but I feel I know you so I won't leave and I am certain there are so many others that feel the same.

I love this card Linda, perfect masculine card. Great job on all those challenges!
I've been trying to enjoy my last few days of summer vacation away from the computer so now I'm catching up on all the blogging. The kids come to the classroom for a quick visit Thursday afternoon and then next Monday is our first day of school. This week we have two days of training with our new reading program so it's sure to be a full week!
