365 Cards Day 102, CCEE, CPS & Pile It On

I've had so much fun with this card today. I printed the Sweet & Sassy Digistamp image off yesterday already with a plan in mind to use it for the CPS sketch this week, and also complete one of the older 365 challenges. Pam totally threw us a curveball by challenging us to combine any 3 past 365 challenges, 1 each from March, April & May.

Now whilst I thoroughly advocate combining challenges I have never combined any of the 365 ones with each other, purely because to me, I want to achieve having made at least 365 cards by the end of this project. So this card is for day 102's challenge and I have made another for day 30, coming up next :)

So the 4 challenges within this card are:-

365 Cards Day 102 - Combine any 3 challenges, one from each Month
CCEE Stampers - Incorporate a flower on your card

CPS Sketch 119 - for the layout

Pile It On - Non-Stamped sentiment plus at least 1 other challenge

The papers are K & Co. I have 2 huge stacks and have used so very little of them. It is the 1st time I have used any of these poppy papers and I'm glad I did. The colours are so rich and I though they would work well with the ladybird (why do they call it ladybird in the UK? the US term ladybug definitely fits the description better)

The image is coloured with Marvy Le Plume pens except the flesh colour is a Promarker that the wonderful Lisa gave me at a crafty session. I NEED to get a job so I can buy some of these lovely pens. I can tell why people love them so much. No streaks and the colour is perfect. I WANT SOME NOW!!!! Thanks very much Lisa the Promarker Queen and Happy Birthday for today :)

The 3 ladybirds are fabric dimensional stickers from craft packs at Home Bargains. They are slightly padded and feel lovely. The obligatory matting and layering throughout is courtesy of my scraps folder. I sorted a big chunk of my odd bits of card into a concertina folder by colours and have used so much more than ever before because I can now find what I want. It was a long laborious job but it's amazing how much more productive it has made me and I've not had to cut into full sheets of card ever since.

SO cute! So i guess if you have been participating since the first day you are getting quite a stack of cards going. Are you overrun?? I keep finding them tucked and hidden all over the house. I think i need better organizing. Anyway... I love that cute bug image and you did a fab coloring job. Great combo challenge card!

Fab card and for so many challenges, well done you!
I loved the challenge for the challenge trio but only did mine today but after seeing Pam joke about using more than 10 challenges I set to and I managed to combine 12 challenges
