A Few Challenge Cards

 Hi everyone!! Long time no see!!

Just popping in with a couple of cards for some challenges. I have been creating but not blogging cards lately. I have been too busy still organizing and shopping for my new craft room. I just want it all to be done!!! 

The first card I am entering into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #96. It is all about the BIRTHDAY!!!

I dug out my taco set-Lawn Fawn Year 9-and matching Year 9 Dies-to make this card. I did a bit of no line coloring for my taco with Copic Markers and layered it over a SSS Mix and Match Circles that I stamped in red, as well as a balloon, which I had in my stash. 

I added some pattern paper that I NEVER use but am obsessed with buying, in the back of everything. The layout design was inspired by The Paper Craft Crew Sketch #414. Again, I am entering this into the Lawn Fawnatics Birthday Challenge #96 as well. 

I loved this card so much, I created a second version. 

I added splatters from the sketch on this one, as well as made the sentiment a continuous strip.

I love how these came out!!! I can send to either a girl or a boy!

I am going to enter the second card into the Watercooler Wednesday Card Challenge #310: All About Occasions. 

My second card I created using my Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Tulip

I have a monthly subscription to get the Paint-A-Flower sets but barely use them. I decided when I was going through all my stamps that I was going to make some cards with them.

I used my Copic markers to color this in and then went over the flowers with a Clear Glitter Brush Pen. 

I used a sentiment strip from my stash but I have not idea who created it!!

I am going to enter this into this months's Flower Challenge #54: Shades of Purple. I might be pushing it here as I have other colors on this but think the purple is what stands out on this card. 

Well, that is all from me today. I wanted to get these posted before I forgot. I hope you have a FABULOUS day!!

You colored that taco beautifully. It's one of my favorite mini-sets from Lawn Fawn. Thanks for sharing it with us at Lawn Fawnatics!!!
