On a roll with challenge cards this week

Each morning when I get up, I grab my ipad and check all the new posts for the blogs I follow- this is alot!
You all have so much creativity to share- I love it!
So Tuesday morning I came across a couple challenges...Die Cut Divas sketch challenge and Pin-spirational Challenges photo challenge.

Well, as soon as I saw the photo, I knew what I wanted to do.
I have had this DCW Green Tea Paper stack that had exactly the colors in the inspiration photo.
I challenged my self to use only paper from that stack. I like the colors of this paper, but not a huge fan of foil papers which this stack has a lot of. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. It only took me about 30 minutes before I started work that morning. Funny how the cards you spend the least amount of time end up being some of your favorites.

Here's how I did it...
Base card is A2 size
All paper from DCW Green Tea paper stack 
Squares and mats cut at 2.25" and 2"
Middle rectangle and mats cut at 3.25" x 2.5", 2.25" by 3" and 2 1/8" by 2 7/8"
Girls/layers cut at 2.84" and 2" from A Child's Year cart girl sitting is popped up with pop dots
Gem stickers from Doodlebug
Tim Holtz ink for all edges.
