Colour throwdown and Freshly made sketches.

I looked at this then at my scraps on my desk and it was as if they could see into my room.
I've layered 3 pattern papers after distressing the edges.
The top blue layer is a tag which was already distressed. I added 2 floral motifs for BFF.
I can see this working for a tweenage girl about 12.

At Freshly made sketches they have this sketch

I put my own interpretation on it and came up with this.
My alphas are bigger, so they go across the middle.

The Male Room

At the male room they want cooking or baking related cards.

I was given some embellishments on Saturday and amongst them was this table setting of food etc.
It was perfect for this challenge!

Christmas cards all year round and Daring Cardmakers

At Christmas cards all year around they want garland,leaves or Christmas flowers.

I'm recycling where I can so found this cute wreath from another used card. I added gold ribbon plus a strip of red and my sentiment.

I've made another Christmas card for Daring Cardmakers where the theme is things that fly.
I've chosen a jolly pair of owls for my card.

use your stuff & as you like it.

At Use your stuff  there is a mood board.

I was inspired by the feathers and the green zigzags in the centre.

I started with a paint chip (from my Counterfeit kit) and added white paint through a mask to form the chevron pattern.
Next I added ribbon down the opposite side, it has a geometric pattern.
I adhered that to the card then glued a matching feather above the sentiment.

This was a fun card to make.
It is also entered at Get Creative challenges where we are asked to use favourite colour combo.
My friends will tell you I like anything green/jade/aqua.

I've used a similar pain chip on this card for As you like it challenge.
The challenge is your favourite brand of stamp and why?

There isn't much choice in Australia but I do own a few Kaisercraft stamps.Both the bee and the Happy Birthday are by them.

I added a couple of organza flowers for my bees to pollinate and a co-ordinating strip down the RHS.
This one was photographed because of the pearls sticking up.

Challenge #2 Circles

At Counterfeit Kit we are asked to use circles on a layout.
Here's my layout.

I've used 2 polka dots paper and the forged dot paper on this one. Then I added a circle card with a flower and 2 large brads, plus 2 smaller brads and a circular paper clip.
Hope this inspires you.

I'm also highlighting this old layout of mine where I used walnut ink to make "coffee stains" on my layout.
Perhaps one of these will inspire you.

Rochelle Speares challenge.

Here's the sketch at Rochelle spears

I had to photograph my finished layout because those flowers are impossible to stitch.
Despite the appearance,the ribbon at the top does not curve and is straight.

I used all Counterfeit Kit items and the big circle contains my title.
We visited the kiwi enclosure in New Zealand and I held a toy one. 

Li'l red wagon and Words to craft by.

At Li'l red wagon they want sea themed and Words to craft by want Running barefoot.

I've combined the two challenges and made this summer themed card.
It could be for a variety of reasons or just because it is summer.
(Unfortunately here,it is mid winter!) One can dream :)
