Triple Play Revisted

Before I get into the cardmaking of this post, I had to share a photo of my morning craft partner. Max was very interested in stamping this morning. He used multiple ink colors, and grew appreciative of why Mommy insisted in cleaning the stamps between colors. He even wanted to try his hand with the scalloped oval punch. {Tear...sniff...tear}

Now, for today's card. It's been a long time since I combined SCS challenges, and today felt like that day. So, here's what inspired this card:
SCS Sketch Challenge 234 (shown): I think my rectangle panels were a little large, but I went with it anyway.

SCS Ways to Use It Challenge 224: Use bold and bright color elements. Whenever I break out red cardstock and patterned paper, there's no way around this.

SCS Limited Supply Challenge 226: This read like a menu from a Chinese restaurant. We had three areas from which to choose one part. I chose:

Menu #1: Neutral images (a medallion that hinges on floral, but I think it stays true to the spirit of the challenge.
Menu #2: Reds/Blues. This was definitely challenging for me, as I have plenty of blue expertise, but I use red sparingly.
Menu #3: Well, I guess it says ribbon and brads, but I really didn't want to dink with ribbon... I had a hard enough time deciding on brad placement.

Card Size: 4.25 x 5.5"
Cardstock: SU! Bordering Blue and Real Red; white
Patterned paper: SU! Ski Slope (Winter Mini)
Brads: Spare Parts
Stamps: SU! Baroque Motifs and Great Friend
Inks: SU! Bordering Blue and Real Red markers
