Card Challenges to Share

Happy Friday, I'm watching the most amazing French Open semi-finals right now, if you're not into tennis now is the time to start!

I have been lacking inspiration for card making, so I searched for a lot of challenge blogs that appealed to me, here's what I made...

Challenge from 365 Cards
The pink and brown scallop card I created for the 'Favorite Things' challenge over at You had to make a card inspired by your favorite ice cream flavor, and mine is strawberry and I always add mini chocolate chips! Yum. I know it's a little literal with the strawberry in the middle, but I thought it was too cute to leave out. The inside reads "How Sweet of You!"

This challenge is from with unusual shaped cards. If you notice, I was inspired by the scallop sketch to make the ice cream card, but I wanted to make another one...
Made for challenge at Mojo Monday

The next one is a sketch challenge from CardPatterns I had a lot of fun making this one, and look for it again on the next How-To Tuesday!

Made for CardPatterns challenge

Lastly is a card for Hero Arts June challenge, this was my first time (since I was about 7) using water colors, I like how fun and happy it turned out!

Thanks for browsing, have a great weekend!
