Challenge Post

 

Hello,
 I have a challenge post today with a couple of cards to share. My first is a card I made using Cool skater, an image from The Paper Shelter. I know when I think of making a sporty card, I think of making a male themed card, but I decided to go down the girly route. I coloured my image using Promarkers. The papers are from Nitwit collections Authentiqe collection, all matted on navy. I kept the card simple and added a sentiment to finish.

Challenges:




 
My second card is a little different,. Rather than using a image, I used a sentiment to create this pretty birthday card. This one came from Lili of the valley. I printed off the sentiments and created a shaker card.
The papers are from Anna Marie Designs blissful pink collection. I added pink lace, ribbon a large bow and some pearls.

Challenges:

Creative Inspirations: Dots an stripes

 
Hello,
I'm a day late with this post after computer issues but I'm back to share my card for this fortnights Creative Inspirations challenge. Our theme this fortnight is spots and / or stripes.
For my card, I used a digi from Di's digi downloads, coloured with Promarkers. I used some old Doodlebug papers, all matted on white. I added some pink ribbon and a bow and a sentiment from LOTV.

Challenges:
I always use my ribbon and add a bow to most cards. I love using ribbon to make bows as I think it adds a pretty, feminine feel to my a cards.

The Paper Shelter: ribbons and buttons

 
Hello,
It is time for the A Teams challenge over at TPS and this week our challenge is ribbons and buttons.
For my card, I used the sweet Just me!, coloured with Promarkers. 
They layout for this card is similar to a card I made earlier in the year using circles. The papers are from the dovecraft Serendipity pack. I sometimes struggle with these papers as they are large patterns, but using the circular style layout, you just highlight the patterns. 
I added buttons and a bow as well as a sentiment to finish.

I can't wait to see your creations, be sure to come and join in.
