Challenges

This week I am out in blog land looking for challenges to enter. I found  several and choosen three. The first being at dutch dare-card challenges. The challenge is to make a "criss cross card". They have a link explaing it here. I really had fun with this card.
                                                                                       

I choose to use the image "This little pig" from character cafe. I choose a retired stampin up card stock for the base card. The background paper is a two sided paper I had on hane. The band is a dry embossed card staock that says "Happy Birthday" I used the stampin up sizzix top note die to cut out the incert and words. Trimed off the edge of the saying. Cut out an extra cake and attached. Sponged the edges and attached to the other top note. Added a strip of color to the band and attached the piggie image. I colored him with my favorite markers "copics and spica glitter pens". I then place the band over the card and done.

The next two challenges I choose are from eat sleep stamp which is a sketch challenge and digi doodle shops best the challenge being " Use your scraps".

I choose to use the image "Birthday Spot" from the character cafe. I think he is so cute. I dug down in all my scraps {I have 4 drawers of differnt colors} and came up with these bright bold colors. I think he just screams color. I again used my copics and spicas to color him. The words are part of the little piggie set.

I hope you have enjoyed these challenges and go to  the daily dare 4 u to see what you can find in the way of challenges. Hope you have a great week end. I am working & will be thinking about all of you and the great things you are working on. Hope you have a crafty good week end.
