A sketch challenge and a colour challenge...

Hello Everyone,
Hope you're all having a fab Friday. I have been busy scrapping - hooray!!! and wanted to share these with you.
The first is for the colour challenge from the CC over at Bon's...

we had to include the word 'priceless' on the LO...

... pretty flowers, yes?

and pretty ribbon...

an orange butterfly I made...
and the monogram that was part of the criteria...

another of the criteria was to include butterflies...

and more butterflies, lol.
Worked out what the colour challenge was yet???

That's right!! Red, black, white and a smidge of orange! Not a combo I am usually comfortable with, but I loved this in the end and am pleased with how this LO turned out.
The next challenge is the sketch challenge from the same CC...

a Christmas LO in March?? How bizzare!! We had to use Kraft or raw chipboard... I didn't have any Kraft...

I put this journalling box on felt! Looks alright doesn't it? One of the criteria was to have 3 or more sentences of journalling...

also had to have a border of some sort...

and here's the finished product! The other criteria was to have a 5x7 or larger photo... this was the only one I had on hand, hence why I ended up doing a Christmas LO in March! Quite happy with this one too. It's such a nice change to like what I'm producing at the moment... it's been a long time since I've been happy with my work. It's hard not to be inspired by the ever so talented DT at Bon's!! Thanks lovely ladies for the awesome challenges!!

Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
