A Triple Play! :D

Good afternoon ladies! Sorry for the late post but as you know I have not had any mojo the past couple of days so I have not made any cards. I finally did one though and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It's not too bad for having lost my creativity! Anyway, to make my life easier, I combined THREE challenges! Haha! 
I used yesterday's SCS sketch challenge, today's ways to use it challenge which was to only use scraps, and the Paper Pretties challenge to use polka dots! Well, lucky for me the sketch was a lot of fun, I have TONS of scraps, and I use polka dots all the time! :D It definitely made this card a lot easier to make! Here is how I did it. I stamped the image in StazOn ink and used my SU! markers, aqua painter, and blender pen to color it in. I then ticket corner punched the corners and added some brads. I popped the whole thing up on dimensionals for a more finished look. The ribbon was the last addition and I really love it down there at the bottom! I think that's really all there is to this card. The dp is more of the yummy My Mind's Eye dp and the ribbon is SU!'s wide regal rose grosgrain (we all know that's my favorite kind). I hope that everyone has a fantastic day! My parents and my brother will be here on Saturday so I had better get some cards made so that I have some to post! Stop back by tomorrow for another Cupcake Challenge!

Recipe:
Stamps: Paper Pretties (Simply Special)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Watercolor, My Mind's Eye dp
Ink: Black StazOn
