Cards, cards, cards

I've been going mad with cards lately... some days I even feel like a cardmaker!

This one is for the Colour Challenge at Design Dollies, using the delicious colour combination of pink, turquoise and white:

Make sure you check out the blog link to admire the creations of the other Dollies, and don't forget, there is a fabulous prize too!

Over at My Scrapbook Nook, the Nook U Finals (Part 2) was to create five cards. The criteria was based on the traditional wedding adage of 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue' - one card for each 'something' plus one wedding card. I mistook the deadline (oops) and only got three finished, but I was still happy with what I made:

Wedding card (additional criteria ~ perfectly square)

"Something blue" (own choice shape - long rectangle)

"Something new" - new product (additional criteria ~ circle card

(I think this one is my favourite - I'm also in love with Echo Park!)

The next two cards were for the Finals (Part 5) - a challenge an hour for 24 hours. I think I got six of the challenges done; these were the cards:


  1. Wow you are amazing that you did 6 of the challenges in the 24hr contest. These cards are gorgeous Karen, good work, awesome job. Melxx

  2. These are all absolutely stunning cards- love the stle of each of them. Susie x
