Movie stars sparkle

This card is for the sketch on Clean & Simple FTL61:

It is also for GC21: Chestnut theme challenge 'Movie Stars' on Gingersnap. Also for Creative Card Crew 30: 'all that sparkles' (even if it doesn't show up properly here, that bottom pinkist white strip is glitter card and really shimmers, and the twisted pyramage is edged with gold foil.

It also fits the theme for day 142 on 365 cards: Movie Monday - 'Let the Twilight movie inspire your card. Use a black card base or black background, patterned paper where the dominant color is red, and embellish with either glitter or rhinestones.'

Bee happy

This card is for this sketch on Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

It's also for challenge 79 on Cute Card Thursday: 'Buzz off!' - 'we want you to use a black and yellow colour combo'.

Cupcake challenge 59 is 'cute as a bug' (I think a bee qualifies as a bug!)

I'm also linking for Alphabet challenge blog: Y is for ... yellow.

Day 150 on 365 cards
was 'An 'eye' for an 'I' - use one word that sounds like another - hence the 'Bee happy'.

The checked paper is HOTP - other bits are from my stash - have had the quilled bees for quite a long time and not found a use for them until now. I suppose if I'd really been clever I would have had a hexagonal background like a beehive, but I didn't think of that at the time.

A sporty card

This is for the sketch on Prairie Paper & Ink:

Day 182 on 365 cards: Sporty Saturday ...'The specifics: Use a ball on your card - baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, golf, or volleyball.'

And Charisma Cardz challenge 38 is 'getting sporty', so I'm linking for that.

Also for Die Cut Dreams challenge 15: it's raining 'men'!! (sorry, bit late for this one)

I don't know what the image is because I got it in a swap - coloured it in with copics. Black spotty paper is HOTP and red stripy is K & Co.

Thanks to Vee, I now know that the image is a Paper Nation stamp - I should have known that because I've got some of the others, for instance, the rugby one, which is similar. Thanks, Vee.

Thinking of you

Color Dare challenge 35 asks us to use these colours:

Challenge 6 on Stampin' Sisters in Christ is to make a 'thinking of you' or 'praying for you' card. I realise that I haven't actually stamped on this card, so I might do another one for this later.

I've used an aperture 'window' card for challenge 34 on Crafty Creations

I used flowers cut from a K & Co embossed vellum. The sentiment ties up the three colours asked for in The Color Dare:

A recipe for a cute card

Just amended this post to say that Leah supplied the sketch, not Nikki as I previously put - that'll teach me to read things properly - sorry, Leah.

This card is for this week's sketch by Leah on Paper Blooms:

This week's Cute Daisy May challenge is 'Easy as 1, 2, 3!' - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 flowers. The wide ribbon with spots on has been in my box neglected for far too long. The buttons are tiny, but are definitely there! and it seemed a sensible place to put them. The flowers are layered but you can't see that too well here.

The image was obtained in a swap so I can't say what it is - if anyone recognises it, please tell me) and I coloured it with copics,V09, B23 and BG01, which were the nearest I had to the colours specified in this week's Copic Colour challenge:

Papers are BG wisteria and euphoria.
