A new challenge at Polkadoodles - Use two or more patterned papers

Good morning all, I'm back today with a new card for the latest challenge over at Polkadoodles. This time the challenge is to use two or more patterned papers so I did this.
The papers come from Dollie goes East and the picture is Serenity Blossom which is available as part of the collection which I have or if you just want the image then she is also available on her own.

I used a 7x5 card and covered the back with one of the papers from Dollie, I then cut a smaller piece to which I added a ribbon and distressed the edges.  I cut the image out of a die and then used a black pen to draw a squiggly line around the edge.  I added a few flowers and she is done, oh yes the sentiment also came from the Dollie cd.

I am entering this into the following challenges
Card Mania - Anything goes
Cards Galore - Use a stamp or digi
Crafting Musketeers - Anything Goes
Digi Galore - Summery/Bright

Use an old collection - Digi Choosday

Good morning, today I'm sharing a card I've made for the newest challenge over on Digi Choosday which this time is Use an Old Collection.  I have to admit that the first one I thought about was Dollie goes East as I really like the colours and the images on this collection so that is what I went with.

I left it a bit late to make a start on this so I used a pre-coloured image, I cut her out and placed her onto the card halfway onto the two die cut papers. The sentiments are great on this cd and some are in an oriental font but I liked this one a bit better for the person who will be getting this card.

I hope you will pop over to see what everyone else has done and join in as there are prizes every week!

Use a stamped image with CD Sunday

Good morning all, it's time for a new challenge at CD Sunday and this time it's Christine who has chosen the topic of Use a Stamped Image.

Now before I get onto my card for the challenge I need to tell you that this will be my last post as a CD Sunday DT member, I was in as a founder member of the challenge blog and when Wendy left took over the running for quite a while but when this became a bit too much Carol kindly stepped in and took over the posting so I know I will be leaving everything in good hands.  I have had a great time and enjoyed the many and varied challenges but sometimes life takes over and at the moment I don't have the time to commit to the blog so in fairness to all I've decided to step down. Hopefully I will still find the time to join in with the challenges set by the team so watch this space.

Now onto this weeks topic and my card which is a fairly simple one but I really love this stamp.
The backing paper is from Woodland Fantasy by Peerless Designs, it's funny how we sometimes forget that just because a paper is shown with a topper that we can take it away and use it on it's own. The puppies are coloured with inktense pencils and the sentiment stamp is one I have had for many years and I don't know where I got it from.

Add some embossing with Polkadoodles

Hello all and I'm here with my card for the current challenge over at Polkadoodles which this time is Add Some Embossing. I have used Serenity Butterfly from the Serenity Wishes bundle but she is also available on her own here.

My embossing is made using a corner embossing folder from Tattered Lace, the die cut edge is from a die by Sue Wilson. I coloured her in using Graph'it and Copic pens with a couple of pencils for the hair.

I hope you can join us and do pop over to the challenge blog as my team mates have come up with stunning makes for your inspiration.

I'm entering this into the following challenges
