Delved into SCS Challenges before I began my husband's birthday card to try and keep up my challenge queen status...LOL! By hook or crooked, it fits eight challenges. Unfortunately, the picture does not pick up the copper sheen on the map spritzing.
#1. F4A467 - Free for All...I Might Use That One Day - 2/1/19. I printed the vintage world map eons ago and was not happy with colors as my printer was acting up, but kept it for doctoring when I had more time.
#2. FS625 - Featured Stamper...Love Ribbons aka Susan - 1/27/19. I used her card for my layout idea. My theme is entirely different...from florals to the Earth! Kept the focal point (globe) offset toward upper left, and sentiment at the bottom, though mine is angled rather than straight. Color scheme, of course, is entire different as mine is a masculine card rather than feminine florals.
#3. IC686 - Inspiration Challenge, Sherwin Williams - 1/26/19. I used the color palette page of yellow, golds, coppers, and browns.
#4. AOCC18JAN - All Occasion Card Challenge/ January - 1/1/19. One of my goal cards for January...a masculine birthday card.
#5. ABC10P11 - Alphabet Challenge, Round 10 - Letter P - 11/7/19 for planet...Mother Earth!
#6. WT719 - Ways to Use It, Bring on the Shine - 12/20/18.
#7. TLC691 - Technique Lovers Challenge - Dying for Words - 5/21/18. My word sentiment is one of two focal points...it and the Earth globe compete for first place. I stacked four die-cuts of my "Happy Birthday" die to add dimension and spritzed the golden foil with metallic antique copper sprtizer.
#8. MIX265 - Mixed Media - 2/12/18. Spray, Splatter, Sprinkle and/or Smoosh. Lots of antique copper spritzing and splattering on the map, the globe, and the sentiment die-cut, as well as on the inside mat layer beneath the verse.

Great looking masculine card, and wow, 8 challenges in one card - way to go! That globe looks like a die cut I ordered and am waiting for - love it in the cooler against the cool background. I love the scattering of stars.
