A Flowery Trio

Just a few flowery cards I made this weekend. I have the next week off school for half term, so I can be a bit more crafty during the week now! YAY!!! (Although I have a ton of SATS marking to do and planning for the week we go back :( BOO!!!)

This first card is for SC334 and Play Date Cafe Challenge #83 to use black, white and a splash of green. I used Old Olive and I totally love these colours together.


Stamps: Turning A New Leaf, Polka Dot basics II, Fillable Frames #1 all from PTI

My next one is for Stampin' Royalty Challenge #73 for the sketch, Papertake Weekly's Challenge to use pale, pretty pastel colours and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #143 to use the colours from Echo Park's Springtime Collection. Lucky for me I bought a pad of this paper a few weeks ago (I bought 3 of Echo Parks new paper packs)!
