Three Challenges = One Card, GDP031, CYCI115 & JUG338!

I really challenged myself on today's project. I don't think I've ever used 3 different challenges on one card but I did it! I used a THEME challenge from the Global Design Project GDP031 which is to use "Nature" on a project:

Along with the "Color Challenge" from Can You Case It #115:

And thirdly, the "Trend" called the smooshing technique from the Just As Girls #338:

One would think that 3 challenges would make for a complicated card but it wasn't complicate at all:

Nature = my leaves and Smooshing was done with the 3 colors in the challenge!

I used a clear block along with So Saffron & Real Red inks, spritzed with H2O to achieve the background on Watercolor Paper. Once the inks were dry, I stamped my leaves and sentiment using Memento Black Ink.
