3 cards 7 challenges! :O)

Good Evening,
Hope your all well. I've managed to enter some challenges, as there's some great sketches around at the moment.
My first card is for:
ABC- Summer
Creative Card Crew- Whatever The Weather
Colour Create- i have chose, Strawberry, Rasberry and Kiwi, but i haven't used the optinal extra of fruits... sorry! :O)
Mojo Monday- They have a fabby sketch... really easy!

* Papers: Pm, and smirk*
* Image: The Greeting Farm*
* Sentiment: Doodle-Bug Rub-On's*
* Embellies: Gems and peel-off from stash *
* Tools: Foam pads, double-sided tape, MSBP, Flower Punch*

I have used my yummy Smirk papers, ( i just love all the glitter) and my gorgeous new Anya stamp.
I have decoupaged the image slightly with just one layer. ( Debby inspired me to do this lol.)

Here's a little close-up so you can see it better:

I am in love with her shades... i coloured them witha sparkly gel pen and glossed... so now they really do look like glass.
Every thing is extremely sparkly.... i wish i had a better camera, then you'd be able to see the detail i added with my sakuras.

Card Number 2

* Paper: Basic Grey*
* Image: Sugar Nellie from Lyndsey, and flowers from the CCSR Doodles set*
* Ebelliies: Card Candy and gems from stash*
* Ink: Ancient Page*
* Tools: Cotten wool ball, ( inking and distressing ) foam pads, double sided tape.

More challenges:
Sketch and stash, and Secret Crafter with a colour scheme of Pink and Green... my favourite!
I tried to improve my colouring in this card... i blended different shades of green, and focused where the light was coming from and where i needed to hilight the hair.
Hope this looks O.K ! :o)

Final Card (Sorry to bore you! :O)

* Paper and cardstock- PM
* Image- Pink Petticoat
* Embellies- gems from stash
* Tools- foam pads, and flower punch

For my final card, i have used the fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers... it's so simple, and just what i needed for my order.
As soon as i saw this image, which i recieved in a swap from Sem, i knew what colour combo i would use... chocolate and pink!! Mmm.... yummy!
This little lady looks so safisticated drinking her coffee! :O)

I hope you enjoyed my unbelievably long post lol!
