Crafts Galore Encore April Challenge


No jokes or April Fools here today, just a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. This time we are challenging you to make a card. Our sponsor is Sherri Baldy and the DT is displaying some inspiration using Sherri's images.


This time I decided to use watercolours for my card. I also used some patterned paper from my seemingly endless (and ever growing) stash. And I got out my brand spanking new flower die as well and made roses in matching colours to my image. 


I would like to participate in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Girly
Crafty Catz - Whimsical Fantasy
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Lines or No Lines (I have been playing a lot with no lines, it's my favourite when I do watercolouring. For everything else, I would choose lines)
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration Challenges - Anything Goes with a twist of flowers
Creative Card Crew - Handmade Flowers
City Crafters Challenge Blog - Polka Dots
Try it on Tuesday - They who have wings

Card: 300 gsm white card, 240 gsm coloured card teal and baby pink, Hobbycraft 160 gsm white card
