A Few Challenges

 I spent a bit if time playing in my craft space yesterday and have some cards to share :).  First up is a card for the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.  I didn't have any of the SU colours for this challenge so I've substituted Versafine Olympia Green and Distress Inks Barn Door and Wild Honey.  I think they are fab autumnal shades together.  The wreath is stamped with a branch from Card-io, using first and second generation inkings, the SU Petite Petals are punched out with gems in the middles.
I'm also entering my card for:
Patties Creations - autumn colours
Alphabet Challenge - R is for round
A Creative Need - yellow and orange
Docerela - fall colours
Kitty Bee - dies and or punches

 Second card is a birthday card for a lady who likes elephants.  I've used a Pink Petticoat digi, matted and layered a few times, and following the layout at Sketch Saturday.
I'm also entering my card for:
4 Crafty Chicks - happy birthday
Crafty Little Fairies - only 1 DP (pennant)
Milk, Coffee - lots of layers
Seize the Day - anything goes birthday

Third card is one of my favourite Pink Petticoat Ewe images, paper pieced in polka dots with a bow and stitching added.
I'm entering my card for:
Creative Knockout - animal friends
