The challenges in the Paper Secrets CYAO challenge are getting tougher.  This week's challenge comes from Friday Sketch Challenge, and the 3 items to be used had to be chosen from these 5.  *Digital Stamp Image   *Blending Pens/Watercolors  *Corrugated Cardboard/Paper  *Glossy Accents/Diamond Glaze  *Handmade Fabric Flower.  That is where it got tough for me.  First I selected Watercolors as I do not know how to use blending pens and I had a great piece of paper I watercolored for something else leftover.  I couldn't use a digital stamp as my printer doesn't work and I normally use Glossy Accents to adhere things so it wouldn't be seen.  That left me with Corrugated Cardboard which I took from a hot cup wrapper and cut to size and inked and a fabric flower which I had cut from a piece of denim pants that were used for cutoffs.  I had not checked Friday Sketch and using the sample on Paper Secrets I thought there was a box around it so I made the design the center of my card instead of the whole card.  Here is what I worked with:

I used the Watercolor paper as my base.  The corrugated are the strip accents and the flower is obvious and centered with a button.

Here is my card:

I'll be having company for the weekend so I don't know how much more creating I will get to do until late Sunday but I'd love you to stop by again soon!  Have a great weekend!
