A couple of cards a few challenges!

My first card is made using Becky's fab sketch from Sketch & Stash, this Sugar Nellie Maggie stamp has been stashed away in my box for ages so thought it was about time I inked her up again! She's dressed and ready for the party! I couldn't believe it when I came accross the scrap of ribbon in my ribbon bag, it matches the papers perfectly. I have used the colour combo from Cupcake Crafts and also think I can get away with this as another entry into Colour Create's 'colours of the rainbow' challenge!This next card passes for the 'under pressure' challenge from One Stop Craft as I have used the strip of embossed paper! The cottage image is decoupaged but it doesn't really show up on the piccie. I made this for a friend who has just moved house (obviously!).Off to carry on wrapping Father's Day pressie's, trying to get ahead of things although I'm having problems locating Father-in-laws bird clock, beginning to wonder if he had it for his birthday back in March lol!!!!
