A few challenge cards!

Quick post tonight folks , made these cards earlier in the week just managed to get them on tonight...
First Colour Create Theme this week is Red, Brown and Cream
I made the backing paper by scrunching up a peice of 5x5 plain brown paper then i rubbed my ink pad over it then smoothed it out and ran it through my big shot to re shape it, This is a beautiful image given to me by my crafty friend Kirsten (thanks hun) and was a joy to colour..

This card is for this weeks Penny Black saturday Challenge this weeks theme was to use 3 shapes on your card I used a rectangle to mount my image on circle brads and triangle corner mounts....

Lastly this card is for this weeks House Mouse challenge which was a gate fold card.....I love the intricacy of these stamps so wanted to leave my card quite simple so just a bit of embossing and a few prima flowers and Ribbon...

Whiff of joy Challenge!

This weeks challenge over at Whiff of joy is stars and stripes.....

I embossed the stripes using my card folding board and the stars( yes I know they are tiny lol! but wanted to keep a minimalist feel to the card...)are tiny gems... this is the first time I have coloured this image and I quite like the green theme.... inked a little heavy round the edges hadn't planned to I wanted to leave it white but my clear plate had a mark from a nestie on it and it marked the image when I used it so its a bit of a cover up job i'm afraid!
Thanks for visiting xxx
