This is a Thinking of You card for one of my friends, who has not received a card from me for almost a full year during my COVID period of creative mojo run amok...not for her birthday, Christmas...you name it. My Bad! I found 12 challenges to fit this card.
1) S2S21JAN - Stamp 2 Save Challenge/ Dreams - 1/1/21/ monthly challenge 5 theme cards - "Dreams." The January challenge wants you to dream of what you'd like to do when COVID is over that you can't do now. This is my first of five cards for the "Dream" theme and represents traveling to Butchart Gardens.
2) AOCC21 - All Occasion Card Challenge - 2/1/21. Annual/ ongoing/ monthly. This challenge allows you to choose any card theme and set a goal for each month of how many you will need of each theme. A "Thinking of You" card needed in February for a close friend.
3) USEIT2021 - Use It Challenge - Annual/ ongoing/ monthly - 2/1/21. This challenge requires you to use old and long unused items gathering dust or new/ old items purchased over six month and never unpackaged/ used!

Wow Carlene, you are the challenge queen! Beautiful bright floral paper is cheerful for a February day. I love the doily with the little yellow flowers and the sentiment is so sweet, enough to bring a smile to your friend's face too.

I'm not quite sure which is more impressive -- your card or the number of challenges you met with just one card. Wow! And it's a beauty. Love the bright and cheery colors and layout. I can definitely see the influence of the three inspiration doors from that particular challenge. I think your friend will feel like you have wrapped up all the missed cards into this beauty. Wonderful card.
