My first card is for Farm Fresh Friday's "Down The Rabbit Hole" challenge inspired by the release of the new Alice in Wonderland film, which I can't wait to see. I love Johnny Depp and Tim Burton together! I don't have any other "Alice-y" stamps than this one, but I think I can get away with it. I did add some brightly coloured mushrooms in the background. I also used Mercy's Sketch # 63 and Just Add Ink's Challenge #7 to use Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion and So Saffron. I didn't have any matching DSP that I wanted to use so I made my own - pretty huh?
Stamps: Easter Anya, Queue Up, Thanks Tons
Papers: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Pink Passion
Inks: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, So Saffron, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Ciaos
Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Metallic Pink Dew Drops, Scallop Edge Punch, Oval Nestabilities
My next card is for SCS' SC270 and Stamping Royalty's Challenge #9 which was to use the photo on their blog for inspiration. I have only recently just found this challenge blog and they have some great challenges and gorgeous DT cards - check them out! (And yes my sentiment is wonky! Despite using my SAMJ I still managed to slip and stamp it wrong. I didn't want to cover it up though so will have to stay like that for now!)
Stamps: Itty Bitty Buds, Sincere Salutations
Papers: Confetti White (this makes a much sturdier base than Whisper White), Ruby Red, Old Olive DSP, So Saffron DSP, Not Quite Navy DSP (from retired hostess pack)
Inks: Ruby Red, Old Olive, So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Really Rust
Accessories: So Saffron grosgrain ribbon
My next one is for Linda's Purely Stamping #4 to use Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise and Apricot Appeal, Truly Scrumptious' #27 and SCS Free For All #1 (a new weekly challenge on SCS) to use textures (my flowers and ribbon), DSP (check!) and a colour you don't normally use (mine's Apricot Appeal, which I don't use at all unless I'm doing a colour challenge with it in. It's just not my kind of colour, but I do like it with a bit of bright pink though - I might be converting slightly)
Stamps: On A Pedestal, A Bit of Birthday Cheer
Papers: Apricot Appeal, Pixie Pink, Whisper White, Rainbow Sherbet DSP (retired)
Inks: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, SU Markers in Certainly Celery, Real Red, Apricot Appeal, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery brads, Scallop Edge Punch
Up next is a card for SCS SC269, Color Throwdown #82 to use Not Quite Navy, Old Olive and Ruby Red (I did have to swap out the Very Vanilla for Whisper White as VV looked wrong with the WW of the DSP - hope I don't get in trouble for that bit :P) and Crazy 4 Challenges #27 to use paper piercing. I used True Friend, which I haven't used in a long time and really should use more often as it's so pretty.
Stamps: True Friend
Papers: Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Old Olive DSP
Inks: Old Olive, SU Markers in Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red
Accessories: Piercing tool and mat pack, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
My next card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #20 to use Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White and for Just Us Girls #23 - the sketch. I couldn't decide where I wanted mys entiment so copied Stacey's idea of attaching it to the bow. Not sure if you can see in the photo but I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the centres of the flowers and the edges of the butterfly's wings.
Stamps: Live Your Dream
Papers: Real red, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Bashful Blue DSP
Inks: SU Markers in Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Whisper White satin ribbon, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Certainly Celery button, Dazzling Diamonds, Circle Nestabilities, Blue Embroidery Thread
Up next is a card for Mojo128 and SCS CC260 to use Crushed Curry, Always Artichoke and Basic Gray. I love how the brightness of the Crsuhed Curry stands out on this one.
Stamps: Floral Symphony, Fluttering By both from Verve
Papers: Crushed Curry, Basic Gray ink and marker, Whisper White, Tea & Crumpets DSP
Inks: Always Artichoke, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Crushed Curry Polka Dot ribbon, Basic Gray Tafetta ribbon, Circle Nestabilties, MS Cornice Border Punch

Charisma Cardz #9 to use fairies, Our Creative Corner's Sketch #5, Sweet Stamping's #16 to make something for a child (what little girl wouldn't like pink and fairies?!), SCS CC124 to use Old Olive, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink and finally, A Spoon Full of Sugar's #93 to use beads! Phew! I actually don't have many beads as I don't use them very often, but luckily I received this string of clear beads from Linda for being picked for her colour challenge winner last week. Thank you Linda for them!

I was flicking through my stamps folder and realised that I hadn't used this stamp for ages and it's perfect for adding glitter to so out it came!
