I've missed all the challenges this week due to first a busy schedule and then a bad cold/flu, so I just really wanted to do a challenge today. I tried to get the last 3 in on today's card.
Sketch -- the diagonal thing
Ways to Use It -- to use our sanding blocks
Limited Supplies -- to make faux chipboard
Oh, additionally I wanted it to be a card for a child as I need 3 of them soon for another of our silly games we play at birthday parties we have.
Well, this card is so totally NOT me -- I love all the cards everyone else does in this style, and I wanted to try and thought these challenges were the perfect fit for such a card -- I tried -- that's about all I can say -- LOL!!!
My background embossed pieces were sanded, but I didn't like them so I then went over them in craft white DTP. The heart is a real chipboard piece that is colored with craft ink, sanded, then embossed those tiny white flowers on. The other 3 flowers are faux chipboard made from a Kleenex box. They, too, are sanded.
Oh well -- at least it's nice to be back in the saddle and be able to visit with you all via comments!!! I missed that this week!!!

the mark of a true artist...someone who can do something 'totally not you' and do it so beautifully. i don't think you could make an ugly card. this is beautiful and fun. great job on combining challenges. glad to know you're feeling better. i did miss seeing your cards this week.
