Five challenge post

I have always wondered how people find multiple challenges that one card can fit into.  Well I have found 5 that worked for me this week.  First to be listed is the Make It Monday #113 Challenge.  The design or sketch for this card came from Sketch Saturday #231.  The colors for this card came from the picture inspiration at Just Us Girls #160.  The challenge a Casual Friday #76 was use craft colored cardstock. Finally the challenge at Do You Stack Up #95 was to use wet or dry embossing. I also scored 3 lines above my sentiment.   So the colors of orange, green and brown came from the color challenge.  I saw an awsome idea on Techno Stamper of embossing on craft colored cardstock and then picking up color from a marker with a waterpen and painting the image.  And last but not least that is where the white embossing on the craft paper came in.  I did stamp  a leaf on the orange background with bronze metallic ink.  I also used a little bit of distress ink to highlight the edge of this card.
