Challenge Cards Abound!


Hello friends! Hope you had a great Wednesday! I got a little bit of mojo and decided to bust out some challenge cards. I wanted to blog them all since I always forget when challenges end and I don't wanna miss the deadlines.

This first card is for two challenges. One of them is the 7 Kids College Fund challenge and the other is for the Flutter By Challenge. This sweet little girl is Swiss Pixies Gretel. I love her! The paper is Sassafrass. I don't think the colors photographed really well. Also, this was an image I already had that was stamped so I'm not sure what kind of paper it was on but my colors kind of smudged. BUT I spent forever coloring her, so I decided to make a card anyhow. I put some Stickles on her wings and finished with ribbon and bling.

My second card is for 2Sketches4You and Wee Memories (to use a butterfly.) I'm in love with this sketch from Laura, I think it's pretty spectacular and I could use it a lot. The paper is Basic Grey Olivia. This paper is actually really versatile too! It has some super cutesy stuff but I think this card is pretty elegant. I die cut the butterfly with a Provo Craft die and then added Gunmetal Stickles to create the body of the butterfly. The bling is Colorbok and let me tell you, I wish I had bought like 80 of these bling sets, I can't find them anymore and I'm super sad! The sentiment comes from Ippity's Regal Greetings.




My last card is for the Off The Wall Craftiness challenge as well as the current CardPatterns sketch. I made a kid/baby card. I love this little elephant from Unity's Could I Be Any Cuter. :) The papers are Basic Grey Lemonade (I thought they went well with Kim's colors.) The sentiment is an SRM Sticker.

Alright, I hope you all have a great Thursday! :D
