My first card this week is for Stacey's Curtain Call #21 to use Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Barely Banana and Whisper White, for Crazy For Challenges #28 to make a masculine card, for Stamp With Us' theme challenge to also make a man's card and for Sketch 'n' Color's challenge #2 - the sketch.
Papers: Always Artichoke, Barely Banana, Whisper White, Certainly Celery DSP
Inks: Basic Black, SU Markers in Barely Banana, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke
Accessories: Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch
My next card is for Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #271 and for Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #10 to use only greens and a limited amount of neutral colours. (My Stampin Royalty card entry for last week won one of the Royalty Goddess picks which was a lovely surprise!) Lots of green has been used this weekend, due to all the St Patrick's day challenges, but as I don't celebrate it I've used the colours for other things!
Stamps: Circle Circus, Sincere Salutations
Papers: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Old Olive DSP
Inks: Garden Green, Certainly Celerly, Old Olive
Accessories: Old Olive Satin Ribbon (this stuff is gorgeous and coming out soon in the UK), Green Dew Drops
My next card is for Just Us Girls Challenge #24 to make a flap card and for Sweet Stampin' Challenge #17 to use Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Sage Shadow and Blush Blossom.
This is the closed card. The flap doesn't quite close as well as I wanted because I didn't have any magnetic closures so had to use velcro which would then have been paced in the middle of my stamped front. As it is I think it's too low down but it looked worse nearer to the fold.
This is the card with the flap opened - you can see what I mean about the velcro here.
And this is the inside of it.

Papers: Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Sage Shadow, Blush Blossom, Whisper White
Inks: Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery, SU Markers in Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana

Up next is the card I made for my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day which was on Sunday March 14th here in the UK. She loves sunflowers so I had to use them for her card. It's also for Papertake Weekly Challenge #36 - the sketch, A Passion For Papertrey's Spring Clean challenge - to use something you bought ages ago and have never used (I bought the banana ribbon about 2 years ago from Taylored Expressions and it has never come out of its little bag before!) and SCS CC13 to use Barely Banana, Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip.

I did stick on the wrong orange ribbon though and didn't realise until I was writing my recipe out - oops! (That's what happens when you watch American Pie 2 whilst making cards LOL)
