4 challenges in one

I am always amazed by those of you that do card challenges and you are able to do so many challenges with one card.  This is my first card that I was able to fit 4 of the challenges my card group had in one card.

The following challenges:
All pink card (I did use a little gray on the mouse)
Monochromatic card using 3 circles with texture or embossing
Use a cat or dog in your card
Use Food in the card (yes those are pink cookies :)  and there is a cupcake and cherry in the sentiment)

I will be sending this off to my great niece, they have a cat so thought she might like this even though her cat is black :)

Stamp and paper from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine
Spellbinders -- Blossom, Lacey circles and intreverted circles dies
Cuttlebug -- D'vine Swirl embossing folder
Stickles -- Fruit punch on cherry
Recollections -- Iridescent gems
Fashion Bead paint in pink

We have our snow, a little more than an inch right now and they say it should stop snowing around 2pm today.  We are having our Christmas get together with our daughter and son in law this evening so I guess you could say we are having a white Christmas :)

Thanks once again for taking the time out of your day to stop by, so good to hear from you,

I don't know how people manage so many challenges, either, but you pulled this off beautifully. I think your great niece will fall in love with the pink kitty, and I would gobble up those pink cookies! Adorable!

Hi Connie. Love all the pinks! Now were those gems self adhesive or did you have to glue them on?

My WP template crashed and I can't fix it. Even changing themes didn't fix it. After trying for countless hours, I said forget it. I'm back to withtwigsandbranches blogger blog. I transferred over the posts I had written on WP but I'm sorry, I couldn't transfer your comments.

Oh my! Such a clever way to combine all those challenges. I would never have been able to combine so many in one card. LOL :) Your card is so adorable! I love that mouse, so very cute.
