A rose by any other name would smell as sweet ...

This card is for the sketch on Limelight 38, which also calls for the use of buttons (I turned the sketch on its side):


It's also good for:

Get funky January: 'spots and stripes' - using a freebie Funky Hand download, I changed the colours in Digital Image Pro
Crafty pad 52: 'buttons'
So artful: 'rose' - the picture of the dog and the rose was downloaded from Art Freebies
Color dare 50: 'ruby red, creamy caramel, Bermuda bay
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 17: 'chipboard' - the three 'buttons' are chipboard
365 cards day 290: 'Tuesday trio': 'chipboard, blossom (the rose in the picture), button'
Our creative corner: 'clean and simple'




Cream, blue and pink bling

This card is for the sketch on Allsorts 33, which also calls for 'old or new', so I'm using a new raised sticker with a rose in the middle and also some new heart gems (Poundland):

As I've used new stash, this will fit this week's Flutter by Wednesday 91: 'new' - and, of course, it has butterflies, which qualifies it, also Cute card Thursday 94: 'all new' .

It's also for this fortnight's week 10 challenge on Basic Grey to use the colour combo of cream, pink and blue - I always love the opportunity to use BG products - this time I've used urban prairie papers. The colours are also right for Cupcake Inspiration (Hope stamps eternal) 40

There are also similar colours at Manic muffin totes for Etsy inspired 69:

This is a 'thank you' card, which makes it good for Magical crafts 5, Lili of the valley 44 and Totally Gorjuss 11 (sorry, there's no cute image).

So here is my card (irl the hearts are much more pink):


With the pink heart gems, this is also another one for Incy wincy 24: 'bling it up!!' and Creative Belli 82: 'glitter or rhinestones', also for Spoon full of sugar 85: 'hearts'.

Penny's challenge this week is to use chalks - I used pink chalk ink to colour the scalloped circle (I didn't have one of the right colour, so I inked a white one) and 'Ink challenge' is currently on Frosted designs.
