Challenge cards

Hi sweets, just a quick post tonight. There's been some very interesting challenges around this week, I wanted to give them attention while I can :)

A card for Embellish Buttons Color Trends Challenge. I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to the jewel colours, I've never really done that.

I'm still channeling my inner Heather Pulvirenti... I was majorly inspired by this card of hers, spotted on Pinterest.
I used the stamps from PTI (Damask Designs; motifs stamped in Memento Summer Sky on PTI Spring Rain CS, sentiment stamped in Nautical Blue) and WPlus9 (Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions - foliage stamped in ColorBox Ice Jade).

This whimsical card was created with several Hero Arts stamps (Flower Swirl Vine, coloured in with Copics; Many Birthday Messages and Antique Engravings, butterfly also coloured with Copics).
I added a strip of patterned paper, some October Afternoon lace and some sewing. Quick and easy :)

I went for an array of challenges here, they seemed to correspond nicely.
The sketch comes from Hero Arts August contest, I used the bottom left one. These gorgeous colours belong to cQc#148. Lastly, I'm entering the card into the Freestyle challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

I hope you'll like them! I'm signing off for now, I'll be back tomorrow with a post (or two). Cheers!
