These are a few other, non flowery cards I made this weekend! I had a ton of fun making all these cards this weekend, but never managed to actually do the Easter gifts or make the new Kaisercraft set of drawers like I was going to do! LOL nevermind, another excuse for crafting during the week!
My first one is my fave card from this weekend - I love the colours and the prettiness of it! It's for Magnolia-Licious Challenge #5 to be inspired by a picture of pretty little Easter eggs, Just Magolia Challenge #99 to pick a line from their bingo board and use the items it says. Mine were the 3 diagonal squares from the top left and I had to use gems, flowers, lace and ribbon! I also used the colours from CC315 - Regal Rose, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz and these colours also fit the Pastels Challenge from Colour Create's #67.
Stamps: Tilda And Her Bunny from Magnolia, Mega Mixed Messages from PTI
Papers: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Junior Varsity DSP (retired), Sweet Always DSP (retired) all from SU, Copics white
Inks: Regal Rose from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Gems from Papermania, Pink roses from eBay, Yellow roses from Hobbycraft, Pear Pizzazz ribbon from SU, Lace from Cuddly Buddly
My next one is for TESC135 (yay Taylor has brought her sketches back and to SCS too!) and for Play Date Cafe's Challenge #74 to use turquoise/blue, purple and white. This is their inspiration photo...
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Background Basics: Petal Power both from PTI, Tiny Tags from SU

My next one is for Walzting Mouse Sketch Challenge #40 and for CC30 to use Creamy Caramel and Bravo Burgundy. I wanted a more rustic look and I think these colours worked well!

And my final card from this weekend is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #5 for March, Free For All #57 to be inspired by the sun, CC63 to use Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Orchid Opulence and Green Galore and for Farm Fresh Friday's Spring Break Challenge. We don't have Spring Break in the same way over here in the UK as in the USA. We generally get 2 weeks of slightly warmer weather, but nowhere near hot enough to go to the beach! The weather over here sucks at times LOL
