A Genious Idea & A Winner

 ~ Hello Everyone ~
One of my new goals for 2011 was to enter as many challenges as possible. WELL ! Once I started searching challenge sites to enter, I realized HOLY MOLY!... there's a lot of challenge blogs out there! 
Sooo... not one to let myself be overwhelmed, I decided...why not try combining the challenge elements and enter as many challenges using one card design! Come to find out many of you card making bloggers already had that GENIOUS idea! Aren't we so clever...hehe :)
Here's my first attempt at conquering multiple challenge elements using one card design...
Can I just say...I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CARD ! 
I tend to keep my designs simple, clean lines, not too much fluff... BUT I am so happy that I decided to stretch my creativity and combine more elements than I usually do!
Verdict : I like it ! 

This card will be entered in the following challenges ...

Peachy Keen Tuesday Challenge- Sketch and Monochromatic
Peachy Keen Face it Fridays- XOXO and Peachy faces
Terrific Tuesday's Challenge- Sweethearts Cartridge
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge- Love is in the Air
Pile It On- Love is on the Air
The Beary Scrap Design- Love or Friendship

SEI Challenges with Abby - All About Love

for doing all the homework and finding challenges that were compatible to enter !

to the WINNER of my fav and can't do without Tweezer Bee's from the "34 Birthday Balloons and Counting Blog " is...
