365 Cards Days 131, 132 & 133 + 4 other challenges!!!

Having had my day on Thursday babysitting my granddaughter in Bath, I find that the challenges from 365 seem to pile up on me! Yesterday we had the downstairs carpets cleaned, so what with furniture moving and so on, not a lot of cardmaking was done, so here is a catch up.Today's theme for 365 Cards is Bubbles. Here's my interpretation.
Penny Black Image and Cuttlebug embossing with a Hero Arts Sentiment.


Day 132 of 365 Cards was a picture inspiration... guess what? You got it... a birthday cake and here's mine.

This card was originally begun as the Day 131 Ad Inspired card from 365 Cards, where I took the red polka dot motif from the child's robe as my inspiration.
From there it went on to be the 'Russian' theme from Daring Cardmakers.
The sketch was taken from Friday Sketchers.
The sentiment, which I think fits the idea of a Russian doll perfectly, is from Penny Black, who also requested swirls. These are from a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Creative Inspirations asked for 'gems and pearls'.
I make that 5 Challenges.
Caught up!

  10. The Red and White make such a ‘fresh’ looking card Chrissie.
    The sentiment and doll are perfect for each other.
