Skattykats Challenge Week 3

Here's my take for this week's challenge at Skattykats. The challenge is a recipe: 3 flowers/blooms, 3 buttons & 1 ribbon. My card was inspired by this card here by Sally Traidman.
I used some freebies from this months Cardmaking & Papercraft mag... these papers are beautiful, from MME no less! I normally don't do freebies from magazines, but these are a big hit... good quality, lovely designs/colours (yes, I even stroked and smelt them?!) and I'm sure I'll be using them a lot in future :)
Buttons & ribbon were from my own stash, flowers from prima. I have become a big fan of promarkers lately, not only are they good for illustration and colouring stamped images, they are great for altering the colour of many things such as certain ribbons, flowers, gems etc. I'm sure not everything will work well all of the time but, what the heck! I have fun experimenting :)

Skattykats Challenge Week 2

Here's my card for Skattykats colour challenge for this week.... Red, Black & White.
I may need to re-edit this at some point as the red is not true to real life.

This was quick & simple to make, I had fun with some white embossing powder, I think I'll be getting it out some more and stocking up on it :)

Pop over there as there is a design team call with two spaces to fill for the next 3 months starting towards the end of Feb through until April and I'd love to come and see your creations :)
