New Challenge cards for 2016 - Card 1

It has been a while since I have had the chance to take up card challenges, it was wonderful to have time this weekend.

This card used 4 Challenges:

One-Layer Simplicity Challenge 23: 
This challenge requires that you only use the base card to make your design, no other layers.

Quick Quotes Challenge 59:
This challenge requires stencil and ink. The stencil in this card is the sponging of the faux ribbon across the bottom of the card

Cardz 4 Galz Challenge 13:
This challenge was to use something new. This stamp set "Sky is the Limit"is my latest purchase and the first time I used this set.

Colour Throwdown 374:
I used Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate.

And this is the card I came up with.....

Thank you to these 4 challenges and their great design teams for providing me with inspiration.
