Two "just because" cards :)


I have a couple of cards to share, both made with seperate challenges in mind.
The first one uses a free image from Fairy Colouring Pages and papers by me and was made for the following chllenges:
Firstly I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers.
Dare you to Digi Stamp'c challenge is to use pearls and a digital image.
The Twisted Thursday challenge is to use hot pink somewhere on your card.
There's a new challenge blog called I Love Digi, and their first challenge is to Think Pink.
The One Stop Craft Challenge is to make something optimistically pink. (Spotted a theme here yet? :P)
And, after I'd found all those pink chaalenges, I knew what colour my card would be, so when I saw that the current Fussy and Fancy challenge is to be inspired by movies, I immediately thought of Pretty in Pink.
And finally the Raise The Bar challenge is "Three's Company", so I've gone made on threes. It's mostly three shades of pink - light, dark, amd bright. There are three strips of paper running behind the image. I used three pearls and three flowers, held together with three brads and each with three layers. And there are three winged creatures - the fairy in the image, a small butterfly on her arm and the metal dragonfly on the top corner.


And this second piece uses images and a background from the French set at DezinaWorld plus ribbon and buttons from my stash and flowers I made myself.
This one was made for:
Simon Says Stamp challenge, which is Vintage + Flowers
And I followed the sketch at Our Creative Corner

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
