RS#153, PPA#240 and VLV Feb Wk3

Hi everyone!!!

I've been busy today and have three cards to share.
First up is my card for the sketch challenge over at the Retrosketches Blog.
This is the sketch:

and my card:

Flower and leaf stamps from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Daisy die from MFT.
Next up is the sketch over at the Pals Paper Arts Blog.

This is my take on the sketch:

Flower and flourish dies from MFT.  Sentiment banner dies from Verve.
Thirdly my card for the Feb week 3 sketch over at the Viva la Verve Sketches Blog.

This is my card:

Flower stamp and die from Verve.  Crosses stamp from Verve.
Sentiment banner dies also from Verve.
Leaf stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Patterned paper on all three cards from Teresa Collins.
Rings and frames cut with Spellbinders nesties.
Afrikaans sentiment on all cards saying: 'Congratulations'.
Apologies for the long post - I tried to keep it as short as possible!!!!
Thanks for popping in and have a lovely weekend!!!

Petra, as usual all of your cards are just gorgeous. Thanks so much for including the PPA in your stamping fun this week. I always look forward to your creations!

Please do not apologize for anything as you treated us to some pretty awesome eye candy! I love how you repeated the sentiment vertically on the first card! Sweet bits of DP and cool embellies on your second card and a GREAT mix of colors and shapes on your third card (love the xxxx's along the top)!

Busy girl...great cards!

Petra, you were definitely on a roll today. I'm admiring that drywall tape on #1 and your take on the sketches, is -as usual - so clever. Each card has boldness & color with the elements & the way that you place them - great design. I'm really enjoying these frames that you've been incorporating lately too. These are 'happy' cards! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs

Another three fabulous creations Petra. Love the way you've used the same colourway for all three challenges/sketches - what a clever idea.
