3 Cards - 3 Challenges

Okay, so I've only been blogging for a few months now but I have been so inspired by all of the creations that everyone posts. I have decided that this year I am going to try different challenges and play along on other blogs. I figure 'why not - it's only going to make me better, right?' So with that being said here are 3 different cards for 3 different challenges :

First is for Moxie Fab World. It a color challenge and here is a sample of the color palate :

Fun colors, right?? Well, I used the tips for exchanging the colors to Bazzil cardstock colors and here's what I came up with... a little different but I did use the Bazzil CS they suggested...

And the second is for the EBTKS blog. I just stumbled across this blog the other day and I think the samples are just beautiful. This challenge was to use wrapping paper to create any creative project. Here's what I came up with :

It's a birthday card for my husband, Kevin. He loves it when I do distressed projects, so he's sure to love this. (and the gift and the card with be matching - too cute) The chipboard "K" was aged and distressed with Tombo watercolors and Tim Holtz distress ink.

And the last is for Mojo Monday Challenge. Here is the sketch :

and here is my take on the sketch :

Well, I'm gunna go and spend some time with my wonderful husband before I leave him for the call of slumber. Ahhh, the weekend, ahhhh sleep!!
