Please scroll down for Card Patterns and Everything But The Kitchen Sink challenge card..
Today I'd like to share a couple of quick cards I've made for some challenges. The first one up is for Rae Barthel's challenge.
So, I thought I was doing really well, I pretty much stuck to the sketch which I don't always do, but there were 3 different elements to the challenge, you could do 1, 2 or all 3 which I'd forgotten about, it is only now that I'm uploading that I re-read the post and realised I could have made a non-Christmas coloured card.!! Hey ho, I'm still pleased with how it came out. I love the dramatic text of those stamps by Papertrey Ink.
I suppose with that phrase I could get away with saying you're wishing big for Christmas, that would work right???! Ok, maybe not, but worth a go!!
Do you recognise the black flower? I used it my PDCC challenge here, and as I'd managed to damage my little cake box I thought I would recycle the flower for use on my card.
I used some patterned papers from my stash, the rectangle and scalloped rectangle Spellbinder Nesties, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for the flower (see other entry for more info) and the big scallops are also by Spellbinders. To finish I used pink Prima pearls.
Ok, so hopefully I did better with my next sketch and colour inspiration.

Everything But The Kitchen Sink's challenge
What are your plans for the weekend? Natasha and I are meeting up with our friends for a bit of shopping in the morning, and a spot of lunch, then home to play with cards! Ian has already been given a list of man jobs that need doing around the house, so no slacking for him lol. Whatever you're doing have fun!
