Fun with Challenges


I have been enjoying playing along with challenges in blogland lately and here are a few cards for some which are closing soon!

The cue card at CASology this week is Tiny so I decided to go with a new baby card:

The sweet die is from Memory Box and I inked through a circle of my starry stencil in Picked Raspberry distress oxide in the background to add a bit more interest.  The sentiment is from MFT.  I will also link up at Addicted to CAS where the challenge is Bows.

At Simon Wednesday's Challenge the theme is Snow White so I have painted and embossed one of my large mdf snowflakes with white UTEE to give it a lovely glossy look.  The sentiment banner is from Avery Elle and I also clear embossed some snowflakes from Uniko in the background too - although you may not be able to see them in the photo!

Finally I am linking up at Inkspirational where the word prompt is Trend.  I always think of fashion when I hear that word so have gone with a sketchy catwalk style image from Tim Holtz.  I watercoloured it with some sparkle pens and popped it on top of my stencilled indian flower.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.  I will also link up at Addicted to Stamps where it is Make your Mark week given I used the sparkle pens on my focal image.

I hope you like the vibrant oranges and pinks!
The starry stencil, indian flower design and mdf snowflakes are all for sale in my folksy shop :)
Thanks for stopping by,
