Thanks TBF#19

I got my new PTI parcel of goodies last week and made a couple of cards using Think Big Favorites #19 - I just love this flourished circle!

This first card is for Mojo Monday Challenge #258 for the sketch, Cupcake Crafts Challenge #209 to do some sewing (hand sewing through several layers of card and ribbon just didn't work so well today!) and for ColourQ's Challenge #154 to use these colours. I was completely unsure about these at first, so opted for an easy design - my fabulous Happy Hexagons set. This seems to be my set of choice when faced with a colour combo I'm not totally comfortable with, but I know I really ought to push myself to do something else for a change. I also got the Hexagons Cover Plate in my goodie box so this time the hexagons are actually spaced out properly!

And here's my card - I really do like this combo!

 And my next card is for Friday MashUp's Challenge #76 to use their sketch and the starburst technique - such a fun technique! I also used the colours from Color Throwdown's Challenge #209, which were very autumnal colours, so I went with a general thanks card (I did forget the Chocolate Chip though, hence the quick button additions on the bottom! Oops!)



And here's my card.

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
