Card Challenges

Things are getting back to normal here at the house so I've been able to get some good craft time in.  Yay!  Sewed two maxi skirts - which I will now wear 24 hours a day :-)  and got to get in on some card challenges.  My mom has been requesting thank you and birthday cards, so I've been trying to concentrate on those two themes.

This card is for two really fun challenges: the CAS-ual Fridays Strips of Paper challenge and the Play Date Cafe color challenge.

I love how easily this came together, and think that it may be a popular go-to design for lots of other cards.  I also got to break out my butterfly punch and punched the blue paper to add a strip of yellow behind for texture.  I even made the word "Friend" bi-colored in a stripe.  (Getting crazy over here!)  :-)
