Challenge machine

I always wondered why people thought it was so great to enter one card into as many challenges as possible, but somehow I have been bitten by the multiple-challenge-bug.

It really is quite difficult as you start out with a list of all the requirements for the different challenged and if you are anything like me, halfway through the project it starts to take it's own life and you forget your list. One of these days I am going to manage ten challenges with one card - but for this week I have to make do with four *whimpers* (I started out for seven....)

Using one VERY rare {{ Some Odd Girl }} digi stamp the Candle Cupcake Freebie from February and some {{ Upsy Daisy Designs }} papers, I think I can add another challenge of combining my two DT spots for one card, no?

Cardstock: Papermill; Bazzill; Stampin' Up ** Papers: Upsy Daisy Designs - #AVA012 Extreme, #UDD0137 Scrumptious ** Tools: ProMarkers; Uniball Signo Pen; Making Memories Tracing Wheel; Decorative Scissors ** Other: Sequin Waste; Cosmic Shimmer; Dymo labeller

I am entering the following challenges

City Crafter Challenge: CCCB#16 - Yummy

  8. WOW! i think nailing four challenges with one utterly ♥fabulous♥ card is pretty flippin' awesome, actually! :)
