You need your shades on for this one!

This card is for Day 90 on 365 cards: 'I see your two colors' - Use only 2 colors on your card (images may be stamped in black and cardstock may be white). As I didn't do any stamping for this card and I covered the base card, I've only used yellow and orange.

It's also for challenge 16 on The Pink Elephant, using this sketch:


And DCM this week ask us to 'take five' - feature five things that are the same - so mine are the yellow flowers surrounding the big bloom.

This is also for challenge 41: '3d motive' on Everybody Art.

Background paper is K & Co Brenda Walton Mira.

On the wings of love

The theme for week 60 on Sunday Stampers is 'on the wings of love'.

The theme on 365 cards today (day 91) is 'front and center' - keep every element of the card in the center - leaving lots of white space around the edges.

The card is also for this week's Created by hand challenge: 'insects'.

I've kept this card very simple - the butterfly is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail and the heart is an image I received in a swap, coloured with copics and mounted on 3d foam, although that's not obvious in this photo.

Nowadays I tend to use a lot of patterned paper on cards, so this makes a change.

A friendly monster

This card is for challenge 43 on Cutie Sunday, using this sketch:

Everything I used (except the stamped image, which was received in a swap - a Dewdrop Craftz friendly monster) was from my 'scraps' box, so I'm linking for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge: 'scrap this!' where we were asked to use up scraps.

The colour scheme I've used fits in with two challenges:

Raspberry Suite Color challenge 6: brown, light aqua, white, coral pink
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge 34: pink, turquoise and a hint of brown

Also with Net's Cute Card Challenge on CBC.

Teen card

This is for Crafts4Eternity sketch 33, which specified that the card should be for a teenager:

and for Keryn's colour challenge 20:

I've used a Simpson's picture (I've used similar ones before the teen cards) and PM For Him paper, ribbons and stickers.

The piece of orange DCWV textured card has been embossed with a cuttlebug folder - the colours are just right for The Cuttlebug Spot challenge: 'brown, blue, or orange' or both, but definitely using brown. The 'happy birthday' sentiment was also cuttlebug embossed.

The card's also good for One Stop Craft challenge 31: 'let's hear it for the boys'.
