2 Sketches and a few challenges!

The sketch again from 2 Sketches 4 You:
Kim's Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge for this week:

For my card I used my Home Decor Cricut cartridge to cut out the chandelier - 2 times and layered it.  The pattern paper is CTMH and the sentiment is PTI.

Close up of the chandelier:



The sketch this week from Card Patterns:
Jenny has an inspiration challenge, using this picture - beautiful photos!


Tenia's inspiration challenge:
 This weeks Color Challenge from Design Dollies:


For my card I also incorporated the Design Dollies April in Bloom challenge - flowers and showers.  All supplies are from CTMH (Springtime and Noted Background stamp sets) except ribbon, and I used my Slice to cut out the word, and my Cricut for the Oval so this fits the Fantabulous Cricut challenge - Rain.  Finally it fits the Raise the Bar challenge - spring
