Inspired by Challenges

Once again, I've been inspired by challenges on so many fun blogs. (Thanks to my SBS-8 sisters for listing the challenges/sketches/blog candy on their blogs for me to find!) Here's what I made this morning:

This first card fits Di Hickman's Card Sketch February #2. I'm going to use it for my friend's daughter's baby shower. (Love the new DCWV Nursery paper - 1/2 price this week at JoAnns!)

The next card uses the Anniversary challenge from Caardvarks, along with the sketch from Isamki. I think I'll save this for my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary in May.

The card below uses a Magnolia that Nikki stamped for me in my PIF gift (love the Magnolias!). It meets the challenge to use your favorite color from Pretty Pressings (love pink and brown together) and sketch #4 from My Paper World. I would love to win the Magnolia stamp from Pretty Pressings and have one of my own. :)

This card is inspired by the challenge at Scrummy Stash Cafe to "create a project focused on just one shape." I chose circles (obviously), and while it's a little funky and different, this card's growing on me.

The final card is inspired by this sketch at CPS and the challenge to use stripes from Papertake Weekly. On the sketch, I changed the heart to a flower and took out the swirl (because the Heidi Swapp flower was too big), but it still works.

Hope you've enjoyed my take on some of the fun challenges and sketches I found out there. Thanks again to those who helped me find them. Maybe you'll be inspired to try a few yourself!
