Lots of Cards for Lots of Challenges!

Good Sunday Morning to everyone!

Today I have 3 cards to share with you for 3 different challenges. So without further ado, here they are in no particular order :)

I made this card for CASology's Week 143 Challenge: Ombre. I have to admit though... I did cheat a little bit... I have wanted the Hero Arts Ombre ink pads since I saw them used by Jennifer McGuire a while back and then I walked into my local Hobby Lobby and there they were! At $9.99 each, I decided I would only get one until I knew they were going to be something I would use... got the rest of them yesterday evening! If you like the Ombre look... these ink pads are a must-have!

This card was made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge #209 - White on White Die Cuts with a Pop of Color. I chose to use the PTI set Boy Basics: Frog Hop. I cut the matching die several times from white cardstock and adhered them to a white card base. My "pop" piece was colored with PrismaColor pencils and a bit of Gamsol.

Finally, I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches #183. I used a Stampin' Up set to make the flower, a set called Lotus Blossom that was available for free during this last Sale-A-Bration. I also used PTI's Super Stripes set to create the bands at the bottom in matching shades of blue. I like how simple it is and I think I'm stuck in Blue mode because it's been raining here for a while now... at least it's not snow!

Congratulations, you made it to the end of this enormous post and thank you so much for visiting!
