Foiled again

This card is for the sketch on Crafty Pad challenge 40:

If the shoe fits
Fashionista Friday 5 is lime green, pink (well, perhaps it's a bit more red than pink, but pink-ish red!) and black - all present on this card (although I admit that the lime green is limited, but it is there!)

And Paper Cutz 12 is 'red, black and white'.

Once again, the photo is awful because of the reflection on the foiled mirror card.

Somewhere over the rainbow

Sunday Stamper 73 challenge is 'somewhere over the rainbow'. I stamped the large funstamps paisley background with versamark and chalked the rainbow colours, stamping the sentiment with black stazon.

106 is 'it's raining' - well, if there's a rainbow, it must be, so I'm linking for that (a bit of 'outside the box' thinking).

Day 105 on 365 cards was: Sing along Saturday - 'Let the song Rainbow Connection inspire your card.'

And, lastly, Lots to do 41 is 'brights' and I think this is OK for that.

More purple Christmas

This card follows the sketch and recipe on Crafts4Eternity Recipe 1:

1. Use the sketch below

2. Use a punch (I used a corner rounder punch)

3. add a knot or bow

This is another purple card for DCM (no hardship to make another purple card, because I love it) and yet another for Creative Inspirations 18 and Creative Card Crew 31, also another one for non-traditional colour on Little Paper Shop.

Once again it's a rubbish photo because of reflection on the foiled mirror card:

Purple Autumn or Christmas?

This purple Christmas card follows the sketch for challenge 62 on Cutie Sunday:

'Autumn purple' is the challenge on DCM this week - I've gone for Christmas rather than autumn, which I think is OK as long as it's purple.

It was very difficult to get a photo because the background and the sentiment are foiled mirror card - in fact, the lower part of the background is much lighter than the top, which doesn't show here.

Another one for Creative Inspirations 18 and Creative Card Crew 31. This is also for Little Paper Shop - using non-traditional Christmas colours.

Birthday star

For this card I followed sketch 136 on CPS - I flipped it sideways:

Day 165 on 365 cards 'shape up' called for a star to be the prominent shape on the card.

One Stop Craft challenge 50 is 'happy birthday', so this is good for that.

The large pink star is chipboard coloured with chalk ink. The two pink stars with white spots are material, so I'm linking the card for Sukkersott 56: textile/felt with machine stitching (round the edges of the stars).

Autumn is in the air

Autumn is still a popular choice of theme for challenge blogs atm, so these two cards are for:

the new monthly Crafty Calendar challenge 1: 'autumn'
Tuesday Taggers
: shades of autumn
Secret Crafter Saturday 53: autumn colours
C.R.A.F.T. 20: inspirational photo:

Color Throwdown 63: kraft, olive green, dark brown, dark yellow (I wasn't sure that the kraft was there, but I think the ribbon is the right colour):

I'm editing this because I've just found the new monthly challenge blog 'By the cute and girly' with 'autumn glory' as the first topic, so I'm linking this card there as it was made after the challenge was launched.

So here are my latest two autumn cards, made with 'the autumn wishes' papers and elements with this month's Scrapbook Magazine, plus a few other bits and pieces, including orange pearls and gems (sorry that some of them look green on here):
