Rico Sauve' ...

It's Rico! Joni over at Inktegrity has this ADORABLE flamingo named Rico (does anyone else hear "Rico Sauve" by Gerardo in the 1990's???) i LOVE this digi that Joni created, in fact, I think he is my new fav!

Now, to get on with the challenges this card meets:

First up is Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch #43. Each week Arlana posts a sketch to challenge us paper crafters. Thanks, Arlana!

Next, Just Scraps posted a theme and color challenge, with the theme of "New Beginnings" and to use pastel colors. Except fo the black, the pinks and greens are pastels, and this card is for my wonderful NEW neighbors, as they have helped us out so much with clearing the yard and some light demo work.

Over at Color Dare, challenge #61 is to use pink, green and black.

For Fun Challenges posted a very broad theme of "Anything Goes, Must be Family Friendly!" This card is definately family friendly in my mind!

Doodle Palace is challenging crafters to use the color black-- which is perfect for this card with the pink and green. They all look so yummy together, just like an awning on a candy store. :)

And to wrap it all up, Digital Tuesday challenge #52 is to SCRAP IT! Oh yes, EVERYTHING on this card came out of my scrap bin! All the cardstock and ribbon were leftover pieces from from a 12x12 layout I did for Karsyn's scrapbook.
