New Month - New Challenges!!

A pinch and a punch for the new month of April! I am sure none of you were an April Fool!!

I have a few challenges to share and hope you may find some time and inspiration to join in!

This months challenge for SKETCHY BOARD ON FACEBOOK is a lovely one..
The board for inspiration..

And the sketch for inspiration!

 and my layout..

some closer views..

I took inspiration from the colors in the photo...

The challenge for ARCHISCRAPS is just fabulous...
To use this building for inspiration and to also use spots!! This is called the Domino Building... and you can see why!!!
And I created a card for this month..

I was inspired by the blue and pink and I have used a spot stamp from Typo on the back ground.. And a hand made bow!

And this months challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG is a lovely one.. and it is..

To use white.. and you will see silver is on the design teams examples, so you can use silver too.. the word PEACEFUL and some flowers..

and my layout..

some closer views.

 some stencilling, dies and embossed cardstock..

layers and a lovely Scrapmatts frame I embossed.

A peaceful moment..
The silver paper I used was from a box I received with some perfume at Christmas.. It worked well with my dies..

I hope your April is off to a great start.. Thank you so much for coming by and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me too!
