A tall card

This card is for sketch 37 on Card Patterns:

As it's a tall card it's right for Caardvarks 'a tall order'.

Day 230: 'shape up!' on 365 cards calls for a semi circle to be used, so I'm linking for that, and as there is chalked embossing, I'm also linking for the Treehouse challenge 20 (sorry that the embossing doesn't show up well and the colour looks different to real life).

The paper for the semi circle is BG Scarlet's letter (still one of my fav, despite having loads and loads of other BG pads).

Anniversary card

This anniversary card uses elements from the music and dance kit from QVC to make the 3D effect, following the sketch on Crazy 4 challenges 7:

This is another card for Crafty Catz 4 colour combo - to use black, white and one other colour, also ribbon and any other embellishments (the black gems). This week's challenge on Paper Maniac Inspirations (now on Sundays) also calls for black, white and a pop of colour.

The topic on C.R.A.F.T. this week for challenge 22 is 'anniversary' - you can see from the second photo that this card is for that occasion.

As this is a '3D' type card with the twisted decoupage (or is it pyramage?), I'm also linking for the special Sunday challenge this week on My Creative Clutter. (I've just added this because I couldn't remember until now where the challenge was!).

It looks as if one of the pieces on the left is out of alignment, but it isn't - it's just the angle of the camera.

Pink card

This card is for Taylored Expressions 87 sketch:

Again I've used Dena design papers and chipboard.

Birthday girl

This card uses this week's sketch on Prairie Papers:

It also uses the picture given this week for Art Creations 45:

The card blank has a pink pearly sheen and the paper is Dena designs.

More clean and simple

Another sketch from Clean & Simple, this time for FTL64:

Papers are again Dena designs and Dovecraft ribbons. The green flower in the first one is Laura Ashley and the roses on both cards are Carol Wilson.

Clean and Simple

These cards are for Clean & Simple FTL63:

They also fit the colours called for on Easy Breezy 'Kewl' colour challenge 8 and also Our Creative Corner color challenge for this week.

Papers are Dena designs, a mixture of flowers and Prima pearls.

Commissioned card

I was asked by a friend to make a card for her husband's birthday with a jazz theme and incorporate a photo of him as a youngster. Some of the music and dance kit I bought a while ago from QVC came in handy for this. I used nesties for the photo and surround and had to resort to peel offs for letters and numbers. It's an A5 card.

This card fits the challenge on Creative Inspirations 19: “A Special Card or Project with Numbers on it”
Also 365 cards day 172: ABC's and 123's
