Lots of challenge cards to share -part 1

I haven't been feeling well all week, so I haven't posted any of the challenge cards I have made. This is part 1 of 2 posts showing them. All my cards are double challenge cards. Do you do that too? With soooo many great challenges out there and so little stamping time. What's a girl to do? LOL!
This first card uses this week's Cupcake sketch challenge on Taylor's blog and is for my Double Dog Dare challenge. The DDC challenge this week came from my very own Dirty Girl roomie, Joan Ervin (who has her own blog now! Check it out HERE). She challenged us to use treats on our card. Any kind of sweet treats. I used Christmas treats with the retired SU set Holiday Sampler and the new DP called Ski Slope.
This next card is for Julee's Mojo Monday sketch and SCS color challenge. This week the colors were *gasp* pixie pink, tangering tango and old olive. I wasn't as skerd of these colors as some, cause I use pink and oranges all the time! I was totally inspired to have some white space with this layout from Julee's sample. Isn't it lovely? Anyway, the card uses Verve's Floral Whimsy set for the flowers and butterflies and Verve's Birthday Surprise for the sentiment. The vase was pieced with a piece of Tangering DSP. The pink bling is from the pink Kaiser scrapbook gem pack.
