5 Challenges, 1 card

I haven't had alot of time lately it seems to make anything, so I figured I would combine as many as I could while I DID have the time! So....I put 5 challenges together, and here is what I got! The sketch below the card was used for 2 of the challenges....challenges listed below!

1 & 2. 2RedBananas and CPS : The sketch is from their blog this week! 2RedBananas was sponsoring CPS this week, so, this sketch was good for both of them this week!
3. Color Throwdown: Colors this week were Coral, turquoise and kiwi!
4. Kitchen Sink: Their challenge was to use something recycled, and Kitchen Sink Stamps. All my stamps are kitchen sing, which i LOVE! If you are unfamiliar, they are layered stamps....the roses are actually 4 different stamps layered in different a really nice effect! My recycled elment isn't obvious. Recently, I have put myself on a budget. I am REALLY short on pop dots! SO...I took an old priority mail box, and mounted some of my roses on it and cut it out, thus giving them height and dimenion. I have TONS of these, they may be recycled even more!
5. Pile it on: Their challenge this week was to use 2 different ribbons and of course, pile on the challenges! success!

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my card! I'm hoping to have another post later today or tomorrow!
