Cards made previously but not blogged

Here are some cards I made a while back but never got around to blogging.
I have made this card using Bearly Mine Designs The Boys Zone (it just shows that although this set is called The Boys Zone you can see it is perfect for any type of card) backing papers and also the Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots for the punched flowers.
The image is from Dilly Bean Stamps and is called "Pinky's Skull Bow" and I have coloured this image in with my Spectrum Noirs for a change:

Skin - FS6, FS3 and FS2
Dress/hairband/eyes - BT5
Hair - EB8, EB7, EB5 and EB2

The card has been finished off with a Marianne Designs Anja corner die and Marianne Designs elegance scroll, Craftwork cards sentiment, lace, punched flowers with acrylic pearl paint centres and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
The Paper Shelter - Punch it
Papercrafting Journey - My sentiment exactly
Digi Doodle - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - Anything goes

This is a card I made for a colleague's birthday.  I chose the topic of Paris as this was where she was going for her birthday.
The majority of the images I used were from Debbi Moore's Art Deco Paris Triple CD-Rom.  It is such a gorgeous CD and brought back memories of going there for my 30th birthday.
 The Eiffel Tower picture here and on top of the box were a download from Cajoline Scrap.
The card is a 6x6 concertina card and I put different images on each side along with lots of different embellishments.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Pretties - Create a birthday card
Crafty Ribbons - Vintage
Try it on Tuesday - Anything goes

This is a card I made for a customer using a digital download from CraftsUPrint.  I cut out the various elements on the sheet and did a collage effect as the recipient of this card loves the occasional drink.  I distressed all the edges of the toppers.  The backing papers were from my stash.  The card is finished off with some brads, peel-off's and card candi.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Hooked on Crafts - Cards for men
Cards for Men - Going digital

Earlier this year my aunt asked me to make her a card for her great-grandson who loves dogs so this dalmatian image I had on a CD just spoke to me.  The paw backing paper is from the Joanna Sheen Furry Friends CD.
The card is finished off with some ribbon, sentiment and insert off the computer and some Papermanie Glitterations.  I tend to keep cards for young children as embellishment free as possible as young hands tend to fiddle a lot.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - For an under 18's

Wow you have been busy these are all gorgeous, especially love the first one with the blue and brown colour combo. Thanks for commenting on my blog, with regards to your question about which PanPastels I would choose, these are the ones I would go with; Black, White, Red Iron Oxide, Hansa Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Chromium Oxide Green, Phthalo Blue, Turqoise, Violet & Magenta, these are my favorite colours to use, they are also good natural colours, I haven't suggested any tints or shades because you can mix the colours so to get the tints or shades all you need to do is mix the colour with either black or white. If you want skin tones you can also achieve this by mixing either red iron oxide and white or mixing magenta, white and tiny touch of hansa yellow but if you would prefer to opt for a ready mixed skin tone instead of one of the colours red iron oxide tint is a good one. Sorry for rambling on a bit lol, hope this is helpful to you and I hope you have a lovely birthday =)

P.S. if you have any questions when you get them just give me a shout xx
