Okies Challenge - 060209

This week's challenge was two cards and a color challenge. Talk about making you think!!!
Here is what the challenge looked like:

Here are my versions of the sketches:

Sketch #1
I purchased a deep blade housing and blade for my Cricut Expression and wanted to give it a whirl so I used Accent Essentials and cut out the scalloped frame and the square inside from chipboard and then covered them in paper, chalked and stickled and viola!

Here is the close up detail ...

Sketch #2
I used all Creative Memories for this one (except for chalking and the skittle on the tag and the stamp on the tag - CTMH). The paper is fromt he Hanna Montana power palette addition, the tag was punched using a Creative Memories punch and the flowers are the delights paper flowers.

Sketch #3 (color challenge) ... the colors were blue, green and orange
I used the three colors of cardstock, cut the cart from Walk in My Garden and the sun from Accent Essentials (the center of one of the cuts), the "believe" and dragonfly are buttons from Michael's that I cut the shanks off of and glued down (using CTMH's Liquid Glass ... makes a great clear glue), the flowers are from a small bunch of flowers in Michael's wedding section that I cut apart from the bunch and then put on the paper and the butterflies are EZ See Through Rub On Transfers that I got at Michael's. I of course chalked and stickled (do I ever not chalk and stickle?).

Here is a close up detail of the flowers ...

It's Tuesday and our next challenge will come out tonight or early tomorrow morning. Can't wait to see how they challenge us this week. You really should check out the challenge thread on the Cricut message board ... there are so many talented people there and their work is so inspiring! It makes me try harder and harder all the time.
