Too challenged? No! Two challenges! :) MFTWSC290 and CTD402

Hello all,

Sometimes, in a crafter's life, the moons align in such a way that things go right. So. Very. Right.

These are one of those times! :)

I decided I wanted to try my hand at combining TWO challenges. It's okay if you want to re-read that. I said *ahem* TWO challenges!

These, my dear friends, are those challenges (you only need to click on the images to take you there!):

Now, you may be asking, "But Ted...why two challenges? Have you lost your mind?!" Au contraire, mon amis! I loved the colors that Barbara Anders chose for the Color Throwdown, and the sketch from the My Favorite Things challenge blog spoke to me. Not in the "I hear voices" type speaking... but like a muse shouting in my ear at the top of her lungs!  :)

Here's what I came up with:

 Now, I normally don't show close-up of my coloring, because... let's face it... I don't like it. But for some reason, I was quite proud of how these came out. :) (As I said, it's the aligning stars thing!)
