The Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge this week was all about shapes.

"We challenge you to create a project that is focussed on just one shape. So it could be circles, triangles (!!!), flowers etc."

I have used Modern Grid technique from Patstamps Technique Junkie Newsletter on my card. As you can see I have made this card with a lot of squares. I have used water soluble soft pastels for painting and Autumn Leaves Flowers stamps for stamping. Finally I have added some doodles for the finishing touch. I have really enjoyed making this card because it was great fun!

The Arty Girlz challenge this week is Frames.
"This week's challenge is 'Frames' so you could use cardstock to make a frame, do a stitched frame, a buttoned frame, alter a frame, doodle a frame.... there's so much you can do for this challenge and we can't wait to see what you come up with."
I was inspired by Marieke Vermeulen's frames a couple of months before and I have decided to use her idea for framing my granddaughter's photo.
Although it may look like a layout, it is actually a card 5,5"x5,5" in size.
She is a very Girly Girl so there are a lot of flowers surrounding her photo. I thought it would be my entry for Paper Take Weekly challenge "Blooming Gorgeous".
"This weeks challenge 'Blooming Gorgeous!' is to use floral embellishments on your projects! These could be Prima's, silk, wire stemmed, die cut, handcut etc! etc!So please join us again this week and help make all our crafty blogs 'Blooming Gorgeous'!!"
I have used the paper from K&Co and ProvoCraft, the accent stickers from Papermania, DCWV and K&Co.

This week Daring Cardmakers challenge is Red and White! "...we decided on a colour combination for a change. We want you to design a card using only RED AND WHITE on your cards- it doesn't have to be a Valentine themed card - it can be any theme- as long as use incorporate RED and WHITE on it."
Here is my card....
I have used the papers from Pink Petticoat and the stamp from Rubber Stampede.
