I've been busy...

Good afternoon to you all out there in blogland!! I've got a couple of cards to show you, that I've been making over the past few evenings, I will go backwards in the order I made them, and I'll try and keep it short and sweet :)
The sketch for this card comes from ICS Sketch #26. Sentiment reads "The path to greatness is along with others - Baltasar Gracian". I wanted to use the basic grey 'urban prairie/meadow' bird paper for this one, and based my colours around that. I think we could use it as an engagement card for friends who recently got engaged.

My next card is for a couple of challenges, the DT sketch is from Bizzy Becs new challenge site Creatalicious Challenges and if anyone is interested Bec and Cheryl are looking for a couple of DT members so pop over and have a look! There is so much amazing talent out there, but I thought I'd give it a go anyway :) I must also mention if you are in Australia, Bec has an online store filled with heaps of goodies at fantastic prices and unbelievable postage deals. I'm also using the colour challenge from UYS (please excuse my pink flower but I had nothing else that would work ), over at Cute Card Thursday they want to see eyelets, and Day 143 - keep it to yourself over at 365 Cards

This card is for the sketch #125 at CPS, and CCC wanted to see some polka dots! It's a tri-fold card so there is lots of room inside for writing.
Last I have a love card that I didn't think I was going to be happy with, I'm just not big on red so this was a real challenge for me... and the first few attempts went in the scrap box :( its for 365 Cards Day 142 - Movie Monday. It's a colour challenge, but I don't have any black card stock so I just covered a white card with black paper. I picked up a bag of rhinestone buttons at spotlight for 50c! I do love a bargain :)
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my cards as much as I enjoyed making them! Please leave a comment if you have time then I can come visit you too! Happy blogging xx
