A Few Challenges


I have had the chance to catch up on a few challenges after a hectic week - here's what I have made :)

This card is my last entry for the Hero Arts Sketch Challenge which closes today.  This was the one sketch (Sketch #1) which I hadn't tried:

I stamped some of the lovely florals from Flower Garden on a die cut label and framed it with die cut leaves from Avery Elle.  A few pearls and a die cut circle finish the design.  I will also join in with the current challenge at Less Is More where the challenge is to use die cuts.  I have just remembered to link up with A2Z Scrapbooking's theme of How Does Your Garden Grow?  You have until 31 May to link up!

My next card plays along with Colour Throwdown - I just love this colour combo!

I inked up a new (to me) set of stamps from Paper Smooches, Cyber CafĂ©.  I masked the cups to stack them up.  Love the sentiment :)  I will also link up with The Card Concept which has a coffee themed challenge.

That's it from me for today.  Thanks for your visit - I really appreciate it!
