Colour Create Challenge #24, Pincushion and Cards

Morning everyone! I had so much fun with the challenge the other day I thought I would find another one to try. This time I ended up at Colour Create Challenge Blog and am trying Challenge #24 which is to used Pink, Orange and Green on your card. These challenge are great fun and is how I started off my really must keep doing them as they get me thinking outside of my little square.

I have used white Bazzill Bling for the base card and the embossed strip. I used the Cuttlebug Bird Call embossing folder. Added strips of green, orange and pink card and finished with a stamped 'For You' and punched swirls.

This card I received from the wonderful Cathy over at Cathy's Creative Corner. I really liked the card and my Mum has just lent me that centre flower embossing folder and I thought why not have a go at a card like Cathy's.

Cathy's card was accompanied with this wonderful pincushion for the July Sewing Swap over at Craftmad. Isn't it cute.

This is my take on Cathy's card. I wasn't game enough to chalk it up as Cathy has done but maybe later today I may have another go.

Here is my latest pincushion for the swap. I have made it with felt and a soft drink is so cute. Even has my 13yo inspired to make one of her own.
