This first one is for Make It Monday's Challenge #21 to use the polaroid 2-step masking technique, which I've never done before but it really simple, yet so effective. I also used the sketch from Mojo Challenge #197 and the colours from Colour Create's Challenge #74 to use fuchsia, green and white. I'm never quite sure what kind of colour fuchsia is - is it pink? is it purple? I went for a pink after looking at fuchsia flowers on the net! This is for Paper Pal Arts Challenge #100 as well to use your favourite technique. This one actually uses 2 of mine - dry embossing and 2 step stamping. I love the depth and texture that 2 step stamping brings!

My next one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for July, CC329 to use Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Melon Mambo and Free For All Challenge #71 which was to use a funny holiday/event in July as inspiration. I chose to use Strawberries in honour of National Strawberry Sundae Day which is celebrated on July 7th!

And my final square card for today is for Papertake Weekly's Sketch #57, Just Magnolia's Challenge #113 Anything Goes and Magnolia-licious' Inspiration Challenge #8. I took the colours, stripes and flowers from the inspiration photo, but was desperate to use this sentiment, so added a rainbow. Love the way it turned out though.
