Good Afternoon Everyone!

Well good afternoon everyone, here are another four cards I have created for the challenges this week. My first is for Friday Sketchers Challenge.Here I have used some freebie papers that I got off a mag this week. Then I have picked the colours out of my image to use on my card which I coloured with Promarkers and finished it off with co-ordinating coloured ribbons and flowers. Then used a cute stamped sentiment.

This next card is for Just Magnolia Challenge which was a sketch and this is my version of it. Using some more of the freebie papers I have used pinks and purples as the theme here. I have used another of my images received of friend Becky and coloured her in with Promarkers, added some Prima Flowers and a little sentiment.

This card is a combined two challenge entry. First for Just Cute Bears Challenge, which was to use buttons and bows and Totally Papercrafts Challenge which was the sketch I have followed. I used some pale yellow bazzil card as my base and then cut the triangular shape from some card in my stash, then added my image which a stamp from Cuddly Buddly, coloured in this time with my Whisper pens. I have tried to keep this card bright but with nice spring colours in mind. Added some lovely paper flowers which I bought at the NEC and are not Prima! Can't remember who made these but you got so many bags for a fiver, bargain! A sentiment and some peach bows to finish the card off.

And finally from me today, my last card is f0r two challenges also. This time Sketch Saturday(its under there some where I promise!) and Penny Black Challenge which was to use your punches. So my image and sentiment is of course from the PB range, I have used browns and pinks on this card. I have used a large punch to mount my image and then have used this again and then quartered the shape to add to the central shape and to finish it off some small flowers. Thanks for dropping by and thanks for leaving a comment if you wish to. Hugs Arlinex
