I am entering my floral butterfly into the following challenges:
Whimsy Stamps Pretty in Pink
Milk Coffee Welcome Spring
Cute Card Thursday Butterfly Kisses
Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers
I love Promarkers Embossing Challenge
The sentiment and small flower were heat embossed in Gold onto a label cut with a Spellbinders die. The butterfly and flower stamps are by Hunkydory and are stamped on a Spellbinders fancy square. I have used Promarkers to colour my butterflies. The pink base card is by Anna Griffin and the pink wild rose has been in my craft stash for years.
Here is my card for the Cute card Thursday Butterfly Kisses challenge.
The butterfly stamps are by Hunkydory and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse stamps. I used Spellbinders dies for the diecut labels and coloured the butterflies with Flexmarkers to match the embossed backing paper. The card is finished off with 3 matching paper roses.

The latest Play Date Cafe Challenge 176 colours Cappuccino...Slate...Burlap really appealed to me, which was a surprise as I generally prefer vibrant to neutral shades. This vintage page was created with Serif Craft Artist. It seemed to take forever but I am quite pleased with the result.

I am entering this card using one of my favourite colour combinations into two challenges:
Polka Doodles #14 Pink and Brown
CFC #97 Chevrons and Flowers
It's a simple card using stamps which were a gift with the latest Get Stamping magazine. I used a fine liner pen to doodle patterns onto the stamped chevrons.

This is my entry for the Play Date Cafe Challenge No 175 The Sweet Smell of a Colour. I stamped the image direct onto the base card. It's a pretty floral tag stamp by Rubber Stampede, coloured with Promarkers, as is the ribbon and die cut butterfly. I added dimensional pearl paint and holographic glitter to finish the card.

Play Date Cafe Challenge - Welcome Spring! PDCC174. The image was stamped using a floral background stamp by Elusive Images and coloured with Promarkers to match the challenge colours of amethyst, emerald and peridot. The sentiment tab was made with a Whimsy stamp and die and again coloured with markers. I finished the card off with amethyst coloured pearls and 3 roses to match.

I am entering this card into the latest Play Date Cafe Challenge. The stamped image
has been coloured with Promarkers and the paper is (I think) by My Minds Eye. The
white card I used to stamp on was cut out with a Spellbinders die and I added a
few gems and pendant embellishment to finish off my card.

I have just made this card for my husband's birthday and am entering it into the following challenges:
CWLC 18 Falling For Fall (use fall colours)
Anything Goes 80 Stitching (real or faux)
The floral/stitch background, owl, flowerpot, tag and word stamp are all from a Papermania set called Secret Garden. I really enjoyed using the stamps which surprised me as I bought them years ago and have only just opened the packet! I am not a fan of small stamps and thought they would be fiddly to use and possibly not give a clear impression but I am very impressed at how well they have turned out using Versafine and Memento inks. The papers are Anna Griffin and the brad, twine, flowers, button and feather are all from my stash. I used glossy accents on the flowerpot rim and owl's front to add a little dimension, plus glitter glue on his eyes.
