2 Challenges in 1

There was some sun again today! Of course when I got into the pool it was cloudy but at least it wasn't raining.
I made this card for 2 challenges - I used Kazan's sketch 29 at 2 Sketches for You blog. My very talented blogging buddy Kay was this week's guest designer at Use It! blog and I used the "ingredients" for challenge 16 on my card. They are:
1. Use something inspired by nature. - I made a tree; there's a cloud, sun, flowers, hills and grass. I'd say I'm good with the nature part!

2. Use polka dots. - The pink paper is polka dot and the "fruits" on the tree add more polka dots - can never have too many!

3. Use your favorite embellishment. I'm not sure what my favorite embellie is but it may be bling and it's in there.

4. Mail your creation to someone special. You'll make their day! I made this card with someone in mind but I won't say who so as not to ruin the surprise too much!

Sorry the picture isn't very good; there is not much light in my house and I only have an hour to post this on time for 2S4Y. I'll get a better picture tomorrow. ***New pics added

Thanks for stopping by!
Michelle :)
