My Make It On Monday

Not Papertrey Ink's challenge, but just some cards I made today!

This first one is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #107 and CR84FN59 to use these gorgeous colours. Coral is definitely not one of those colours I go for - pink and black are my usual colours of choice, but I do love this combo! This was another new set from Waltzing Mouse that I got the other week, but haven't yet inked it up and it really is a gorgeous set.


And here's my card.

My next card is for Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge #138 to use stitching (boy hand stitching takes forever, but this embroidery thread was an almost perfect match to Wild Wasabi and I just had to use it!), Mojo Monday #251 for the sketch and CC384 to use Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green which I subbed with Wild Wasabi as we don't have the new in colors over here just yet! I don't have any Cherry Cobbler DSP with apples on either so made my own and love how this one came out!

And my final card for today is for Papertrey Princess Lee's Challenge to use an embossed panel and a mostly white card. I kept my layout very similar to Lee's and did add a bit more colour, but I can't do lots of white. I NEED colour! This is also for F4A126 which was to show the weather on your card. We are just now starting to get some warmer weather and sunshine over here in the UK after weeks and weeks of rain. Keep your fingers crossed that it lasts throughout the summer.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by! I intend on doing a bit of crafting most days this week, so expect a lot more posts from me!
