Three cards


I made the Captain Jack card last night and the other two today so here goes for a few challenges. I told you I bought a couple of the fab spring images from Pollycraft and here's the first one. Isn't it cute? I'm just loving the pink and yellow, which I never thought I would. Papers are FF Pink Parfait and flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid.
Challenges
Friday Sketchers sketch
One Stop Craft Optimistically pink
By the cute and girly Spring is in the air

And for a complete colour and subject change here's Captain Jack from Pink Gem. No I can't see the resemblance to Johnny Depp either. This was my first challenge win last year and shame on me for not using him before. This was a great sketch for using up some paper scraps. I just had enough of the starry ribbon to add three strips. I'm really pleased with the effect of that with the stripes and spots.
Challenges
Pink Gem Sketch (Option pink and gems. Well I added the gems but I thought Captain Jack would object to pink!)
Quixotic One for the boys
Stamp Something DPs, buttons and ribbon


Last but not least is another Easter card. I bought a few Easter stickers last year in Poundland and still have some of them. This egg was one of them, which I customised by removing the tulip and the orange gingham bow. I added a white bow and sat Squiggle stamp's Daisy inside the egg which I then mounted onto a Nellie cut square. I used a mixture of papers, som stripey ribbon and MS punches for the fern and flowers. A real mix of colours on this one for a complete change.
Challenges
Cute Daisy May sketch
Squiggle Spring
Crafty Catz Fancy edge and ribbon
