Few more challenge entries

Hiya everyone, how's everyones day been? I've had a busy few days with work and I've spent most evening crafting and I feel great. Isn't it just so therapeutic? I find it so...

Anyway to today's cards. I have 3 beauties for you today. It's amazing how quickly I put these together today I'm so proud, normally I colour an image and play around with sketch's for ages before I finally glue anything down lol...

Card number 1 is another stamped image of Milton with Poinsettia from Wild Rose Studio. This time he is in blue, so more of a winter/Christmas look rather than just for Christmas. For this card I was aiming for the 'Vintage' look, I have never made a vintage card before, do you think this works? I like it regardless.

For this card I tore the white card Milton was stamped on to give a worn, rustic look. As the edges looked a little rough I decided to add some glitter to give the image a lift. The image was coloured with my beloved Promarkers. The dp is Forever Friends, Just for him. The ribbon is from stash and the flowers are Prima, E line Brown to add to the vintage look. Let me know your thoughts xx

Milton had been entered into my first ever Vintage challenges:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - #3 Vintage

Creatalicious Challenge - #13 Vintage

The card below is for the Cupcake Crafty Challenge, #104 Happy 2nd Birthday Cupcake. Some fab prizes here so be sure to pop over and play along yourself. The theme is 2 to celebrate their 2nd birthday, so a card with ***Two Papers, Two Ribbons and Two Flowers*** I've used the flowers on the stamped image as 1 flower element, and then the flower in the corner as the 2nd. Again there is a ribbon on the stamped image and one on the die cut. And I have used 2 dp from the Forever Friends, Just for him range, although it goes with this girlie card lol.

This is my favourite for today, why? because it's PINK!!! Meet Toby, he is also from the Wild Rose Studio range, this image is 'Toby with Roses'. The dp is Dovecraft 'Piece of Cake'. If you like pink as much as I do and cakes, you MUST get this dp, it's perfect. All my images were coloured using Promarkers today, as it is getting late I won't list techniques and individual colours however leave a comment if you need any further details and I will sure get back to you.

Toby will be entering his first challenges with me at:

Party Time Tuesday - #12 Pink, Brown and white
