Some challenge cards to share -one for you Twilight fans!!

Hi everyone! I have 3 challenge cards to share. This first one is from yesterday's SCS color challenge -to use Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa and So Saffron. These are such a soft color combo and a perfect match to the SAB paper pack, Delicate Dots.

For this card I used the daffodil from Flourishes Signs of Spring set. It is so pretty and suprisingly easy to color. It's hard to tell in the pic, but I have the center part of the flower popped up on dimensionals and there is stickles all over it. The layout caught my eye as I was browsing thru my gallery. I cased it from this card. The sentiment is Verve's Circular Sayings and the dotted organdy ribbon is from Heidi's store, Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.

This next card was a SUPER fun card to make!! It is for this week's SCS sketch challenge and feature's mt main vampire, Edward!!

My mom has the boys for a couple days so I have some time to play around! This card is for all the Twihards out there! The hardest part was cutting into my magazine to get this little picture -LOL! The stamp is a discontinued stamp from Unity Stamps. I, for one, think Angela needs to be talked into making more!!

For this, I decided to keep with the black/white/red theme after all, Edward is a Vampire -LOL! Isn't he lovely surrounded by the red heart bling and flowers? Ahhhh...

The last card for today is a double Flourishes challenge card. The first challenge is the Timeless Tuesday challenge, hosted this week by my GF, Silke. It is to make a card using your favorite Flourishes set. I chose Coffee With Friends -this was my first and still favorite set! The second challenge is Flourishes April challenge to use paper piecing. All the challenge info can be found in the Flourishes Forum.

The DP is from the Garden Party matstack by DCWV. Love this paper pack! These DCWV packs are so much fun, cause 1, you can get them 40% off with a coupon and 2, there are 3 pages of each design. So, I took an extra page and cut out the butterfly and the flowers and popped them up! The sentiment is from Flourishes, Many Sentiments. And I finally used my new SU punch that matches those bookplates from the HPH tin!
