Triple Challenge!

Woo hoo... this is the first time I've ever tried to combine 3 challenges in one.  Normally I work on one at a time - it's easier and it doesn't take as much thought - LOL!!  But I decided to challenge myself by attempting 3 at once.

Here is the card I made (sorry I forgot to take in the process photos - long day at work left my mind fried).

(all stamps - Just For Fun Stamps)

I am so happy with how it turned out!  

The first challenge was CanYouCaseIt - Fall Challenge  which hey, I can do that easy. 

The next challenge was make a card with a window - with something stamped behind the window.  That's where the corn swag comes in  (fall - yep!).  

The third challenge was paper piecing an image which is where the fun begins.  I stamped the initial image on white cardstock and colored the corn with my Chameleon pens.  I then stamped the image 6 more times on different pieces of paper I made using the Gelli Plate!  Each piece was cut and layered so it all fit back together in proper order. I was surprised how dimensional it ended up being. I then water colored the background with Color Burst powers.  

The window was cut out of yet another piece I made using the Gelli Plate, die-cut and added to the card with double stick foam tape.  The banner was stamped on brown cardstock, trimmed and inked around the edges.  It is also adhered to the card with double stick foam tape.  A few dots of Bronze irRESISTible Pico Embellisher finished it all off.

So there you have it!  I did it AND I used lots of Gelli Plate prints in the process.  I'd say it was a successful venture.  How many challenges have you combined?

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges....
