And cards from Sunday

These are a few challenge cards I made today!

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse sketch #35, Our Creative Corner's Getting Wordy challenge and for CR84FN16 to use light pink, medium violet and gray. My card is only loosely based on the sketch as I cannot draw stars for the life of me (can never get them even!) and I don't have any star nestabilities so I used my Labels 1 instead for a cute little 4 inch card. I love this colour combo too - such a pretty one and here is CR84FN's inspiration swatch piccy:


And here's my card for it:


Recipe:

Stamps: Frame It, Fun Faux Circles both from Waltzing Mouse

Papers: Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry all from SU

Inks: Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry markers all from SU

Accessories: Labels 1 Nestabilities, button from stash, Oyster Grey baker's twine from The Ribbon Reel, Rich Razzleberry ribbon (retired) from SU

My next one is for Sweet Sunday's Sketch #105, Just Us Girls' Challenge #72 to use aqua, melon and kraft and for Free For All #49 to use at least 1 warm colour and something fuzzy - I used felt! I LOVE this colour combo as well!


Recipe:

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits from PTI

Papers: Aqua Mist, Melon Berry both from PTI, Kraft (now known as Crumb Cake) DSP from retired hostess pack, Elegant Soiree DSP, Very Vanilla all from SU

Inks: Crumb Cake from SU

Accessories: Beautiful Blooms Dies #1, Aqua Mist ribbon both from PTI, Circle Nestabilities

And my final card for today is for Just Add Ink's #56 for the sketch, Stampin Royalty's challenge #59 Mark It Up to use markers (I dug out my trusted copics for this one!), Color Throwdown's #129 to use light green, Ballet Blue and dark green, Totally Tilda's Challenge #16 How Does Your Garden Grow to use a nature/garden theme and for Just Magnolia's Challenge #94 Love You.


Recipe:

Papers: Ballet Blue, Handsome Hunter (both retired) from SU, Copics White, DSP from Daisy Bucket


Inks: Ballet Blue (retired) from SU


Accessories: Tilda Lace Border Dies from Magnolia, Pearl from Papercellar, Ribbon from stash
