Challenges challenges

Can you believe it? this is my 200th post! cant' believe how far this blogging thing has come for me!
Today I worked this morning on some challenge cards.
First up is my
Raspberry Suite Challenge by Dawn McVey.
The colors to work with were Red, Moss, White,and Berry. My pic color is just a tad off, my red coming across as more pinkish.
I used - hannah montana- stamps on this!! I am so not a fan of her, but found this set on clearance for $2.80 and loved the guitar, heart, butterflies and leaf vine. So it was ok to buy! LOL!

I used my Versamark ink for the background vines, cant' see them well on the green. I fussy cut out the bflies, and popdotted my greeting block. The greeting stamp is from Studio G ( those dollar bins are so much fun!) and the ink is from Autumn Leaves.
Note- I know I'm too late to enter the challenge- but this was fun to play with anyway this week!)

The journal sticker is a clear Amer. Crafts one. I also used a martha punch for the scallops along the one edge, and added two small tags to the other side. The ribbon is Am. Crafts too.

Next up is my card based on Kazan's sketch over at 2sketches4you.
I pulled out a giant pack of mixed papers, and randomly pulled out a sheet, then matched up two of these pink ginghams with it. The brown dot paper is Kaiser Craft, and the pinks are from DCWV packs I think.

I made this paper accordioned flower,
then added a stickopotamus flower with a SEI tag that I turned to the backside, then added my MM tiny type letters.

The ribbon is Lil Davis - just using up some stash!

Lastly for today- is the challenge from
Cupcake Craft Challenges . Their challenge was to do a Beach Themed project.
again- I used some Kaiser Craft paper, that I shabbied up, then added this quote block with a Flair Designs quote sticker. I added a bit of trim with scalloped scissors, and some small needle holes
I punched a few shells and branches, then shaded them with colored pencils, adding glitter to the shells as well.

I finished it off with some pearls scattered around. The ribbon is old stash from a craft store.

Thank you so much for coming by!
have a great day!
