Challenge Cards

Holy freakin' dina! You know what is supposed to come today?! The new SU! catty! It says delivery TODAY! I'm sure like most of you....I'll be stalking the postal dudes...haha! ETA: Got my catties!!!
Have you all been to the Verve Forum on SCS lately? Julee has some fabulous challenges going on this week. If you play along, there is a chance you could win some of her new stamps coming out this week!!! These started on Monday so I had a little work to do to catch up. After doing the first card which was a colour challenge....Kraft, Riding Hood Red, Blush Blossom....I decided to do all the cards with the same basic supplies. I'm hoping that the 4th challenge will fit into this set but if not, oh well! I used the Verve Set called Serenity.
This is my first card:
Here is my second challenge card:
Here is the third challenge card:
This is a card I made using the Calling All Angels set from H & M Stamps. It was made using the Sketch Challenge on SCS. I can't recall the last time I used Pixie Pink....probably for a colour challenge....lol but it did go well with the Romance Line by American Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Very clever putting the 4 challenges in to a set. I love that sparkly button on the first one....saw some yesterday and thought I'd never use that....but now I see how and why I would and it looks so pretty; just some sweet pizazz.
