More Challenge Card Fun this Cold & Wet Long Weekend


Remember my goal this week was do a full week of the daily Card Challenges on the 365 Cards Challenge Blog well today being another totally cold and miserable day.....was the perfect day for me to complete this weeks challenges.  Here are my cards for the last four challenges I had still to complete this week.

Day 99 - It's My Party Challenge is to create a birthday card you would like to recieve using favorite colours, brand,  papers etc.......

Pink and green is my favorite colour combination so I had to use this colour duo to create this card using the fun Cupcake Card Template from the Cutting Cafe and my stamps from my Stampin' Up! Birthday Bakery and After Thoughts Stamp Sets.  I also can say I got flowers as well with this card by including the beautiful rose buds.

Day 101 - Words of Wisdom Challenge is to create a card using our favorite quote/sentiment. 

One of my favorite quotes which I have used heaps is from the Stampin' Up! Heard from the Heart Set - "Kindness comes in many forms but always from the heart".......and the key to this card creation was teaming it up with my new Unity Heart with Keys Stamp from the May Kit of the Month.

I am also entering this card into the Papercutz Challenge #95- Anything Goes with a Twist which was to use the colour combination of Pink Black and White.

Day 102 - Keep your Distance Challenge is all about using as many different design elements as you can with them overlapping as little as possible.  

This one was a challenge and I don't know how I went.  I tried to seperate my card into sections and then embellishment inbetween the sections etc.  The butterfly background and sentiment are stamps from my Unity April Kit of the Month.  A punched border, flowers, small green rhinestones and ribbon were all used for this card.

Day 103 - Imagine This - Frosting Challenge is to use the given word (in this case frosting) to inspire your creation.

When I think of frosting I think of decadent cakes which makes me think of Melbourne where I saw the most decadent cakes ever and chocolate, heaps and heaps of chocolate.   I think you can see by my card this was exactly what I was thinking of.  I have added my own frosting to my main image of this card with a bit of glitter and gloss from my Red Kindy Glitz and Crystal Effects.  My sentiment for this card is a favorite too - as when you are faced with such a delicious selection of mouth watering cakes in front of you it is definitely no day for just a sliver.  The background images and sentiment are from Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Bakery Set whilst the main cake image is from the Unity May Kit of the Month Set.

Now looking at these cards is making me hungry so its a good thing dinner isn't to far away.  I had lots of fun and was definitely inspired by the great challenges this week on the 365 Cards Blog I will definitely be back there to play again.

Thanks for looking at all my creations this week.
