Challenge cards 5-15

Here are a couple of challenges that I finished today. I'm skipping the Christmas challenges this week because I'm busy moving my office and just won't get to them, but I knew I had to something for me this weekend :)

This is the sketch #69 challenge:

The cardstock is from Flower Factory - I bought two pieces (strips are on the back of the dots) and some ribbon (see below) for $3. I really did try to find something else while I was there!

This card is for the Playdate Cafe Challenge. I love these colors together...although I don't think I would have tried them without the challenge :) Oh, this is the "grape" ribbon I got at Flower Factory. It's really called Aubergine but it looks like grape jelly to me.

This card was inspired by ExpressionsOfACraftaholic.

And last but not least there's this card that I started with. I wanted to use my new paper from Flower Factory. The brads are from Stampin Up - they were on sale ($1.50 for 16 - couldn't pass them up).

Okay, gotta get back to cleaning the carpet for the new office and other stuff. Hoping to get most of it done this week before the actual move on Friday...I have a scrapdate at church on Saturday with some awesome ladies that I don't want to miss.


  1. I like all your cards, but especially the first one. The design is slightly different from the sketch (I do that all the time) and I really like the change you made. Good luck with the move. Blessings, Louise

  2. I love how you interpreted the sketch! That ribbon is really pretty!

  3. Awesome cards, Susan. I love the ribbon you chose for your sketch card. Thanks for playing along in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  4. Beautiful! That lovely purple organza ribbon just grabs your eye! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!

  5. That 'grape/aubergine' ribbon is so soft and wonderful! Hope you gets lots of use with it. All of your cards are so simple and sweet, and we're glad you shared them with us at The Cafe this week!

  6. Super cute card - love that big bow. Thanks so much for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.
