Mother of a Challenge

I'm taking on two challenges this week, and getting an early start on Mother's Day - I feel so accomplished. :)

My two challenges? Color My Heart's Color Dare #83 and Heart 2 Heart Challenge's Triple Play:



I loved the color choices for this week - a lovely combination of cool and warm from the amazing Skylark collection. 


And to keep with the theme of three, I did something I've wanted to do for awhile - use Washi tape as my "paper" instead of just an embellishment. The three long strips in the background are all Washi tape. My other triple plays include the use of gray (the Washi tape, the silhouette and the baker's twine) and the three different colors of gems (though there's 5 of them, there are only 3 colors). So I tripled the triple play. 

My favorite part about this card is the stamp set - Mother's Day. It is beyond a doubt my favorite Mother's Day stamp set I've ever owned, and is fast becoming one of my favorite stamp sets in general because of the awesomely retro silhouettes. 


I also used the Skylark paper pack, Slate and Lagoon Washi Tape, Gray Baker's Twine, and blue and green sparkles (retired).
