Challenges abound!

I've got more challenge cards to share tonight, so I'll get right to it.
First up is a card for two challenges: Tuesday Morning Sketches, and Crafty Creations Challenges. Lindsey at Bashful Blogging suggested that I join up at Crafty Creations Challenges, which has Flower Power as its challenge this week (open until Tuesday!). Thanks, Lindsey!
Tuesday Morning Sketches #141 has this sketch this week (open until Sunday):
Because this is the monthly judged challenge, there's an extra twist for the sketch: Think Spring! And more than anything (except mud, and I am NOT putting that on a card until it's out of my yard) FLOWERS say Spring to me.

Supplies: papers all from My Mind's Eye;
mesh tape from Barb;
sentiment from Paper Smooches;
Versamark & white EP;
pearls & rhinestones from the dollar store;
flowers quilled by me
My next card is for the Young Crafters Unite #8 - Sewing. That challenge is open until April 15 (Sunday). I used letter stickers as a template for the piercing for the sentiment. 

Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Piccadilly;"
Bo Bunny letter stickers;
die-cut borders from Doodlebug;
ribbon rose from Offray

It's been a while since I participated over at Young Crafters Unite, so I'm glad to be back at it!
Don't forget to check back tomorrow to see what's up at Playing in Paradise this week :)

xoxo,
Jessi
