the road to the house of a friend

My card today is for FIVE challenges.

I used this week's sketch over at Whiff of Joy.

The challenge at The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge requires you to use three ribbons and I have used three different types of ribbon.

At Papertake Weekly the challenge is to use your favourite things. I would have to say that my entire stash contains all of my favourite things!

Wednesday Stamper has the theme of 'Colourful'. I have quite a few colours in my card.

Finally, the ABC Challenge is 'V is for vellum'. I have used a vellum quote.

Here is my card:

All plain cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye ~ Laundry Line collection and I used Sundress "Bloom": Ironed Floral Paper and Sundress "Sweetness": Running Lace Paper.

The image used is Elisabeth Bell ~ Shy Willow and I coloured her with my copics.
All ribbons, buttons and brads are an assortment from my stash.
The sentiment is a vellum quote from K & Co ~ Classic K McKenna Vellum Quotes pad. I stuck it to a piece of cream card and inked the edges, before adding a little tiny key.
The quote reads:
'The road to the house of a friend is never long. Danish proverb.'

Thank you for looking.
having a {me} day.
