Two Challenges in One!

Good morning!  I'm so sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I have no excuse--well, I can come up with a million excuses, but none of them good ones!  I've just been in a funk lately!  Not in life, just in stamping!  Have you ever gone through that--where you have no creativity, and you really just don't care to find it?  That was me.  So, I gave myself some time "off" -- I've spent the last couple of weeks just ignoring my stamp studio and not beating myself up for it!  Well, this week, I had to get ready for my awesome stamp clubs.  I was happily suprised to find that I enjoyed being in the studio again!!  It was so much fun coming up with the cards for club!  And then yesterday, I went down just for fun!!!  I played with a few challenges I found on the web, and I got caught up with some design team work!  It felt so good!!!  

So, without further ado, here's a card I made for the Freshly Made Sketch and the Dynamic Duos Challenges:
