My mojo is back with a vengeance!!!!!

ANOTHER two challenge cards have been completed today and I'm working on a third! Are you impressed? I am! (modesty personified me y'see!)

Boo Hooo I didn't win the first challenge on Just Magnolia but that doesn't mean I'm giving up so here is my entry for their next challenge which simply asked for a card in Pink and Green colours. I was tempted to go for my usual pastel palette but as you can see I decided to be brave and make a "slap you round the face" combo of lime green and magenta instead.



As well as the Just Magnolia challenge I've also had a go at the Stamp Something challenge which is based on the theme of Flowers or Showers. I used the Lily and Milo "Rainy Days" image coloured with promarkers and added some Papermania paper which reminded me of raindrops on windows. I embellished the top of the card with some iridescent adhesive gems to give the effect of drops of water.



I'm so glad I've found these challenges, even if I don't win anything I am getting loads of inspiration to make cards for my stall at the school fete in the summer.
