Challenges are fun!!

What a week I've had! Since discovering the card challenge sites I just can't stop! Every night after work I no longer just sit and veg out infront of the TV, now I'm off upstairs cutting and colouring. It's so much fun.

The first card you will see is for the challenge over on ISMAKI . I normally can't keep to sketches, so I tried really hard to keep to the plan! I'm pleased with the result. The stamped image is from Magnolia (love them to bits)! Ribbon, flowers, button and some stickles to give it some sparkle!




There is a challenge over on the Sweet Sugar blog to use stars and stripes. This had me thinking... for quite some time. Stars is one of the things I haven't used a great deal of in the past so I really had to think outside the box to complete this challenge. My inspiration came from some free papers in a card magazine Simply cards and Papercraft. Stars - well star flowers and star flower papers, from the magazine and the stripes, well strips of cardstock!! The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp (another of my faves)!




Well thanks for looking I'm off now to look at what else I can do... have fun!! I know I will :)
