March Layout and Card Challenges

Hi Everyone, it's time to share more of the completed projects using the March Monthly Pack, compliments of the beautiful Jillibean Soup range.  We have a pretty mixed bag with this pack, the girls have been coming up with all manner of colour combinations - which is great to see.  Take a look and see what you think, and please feel free to leave a comment.
Wish Upon a Star by Sam Epps
 This detail shows how Sam has used her chipboard to cut out and shape the leaves.  She has then backed these with the webbing. The flower has been made by folding paper squares and layering.  Note the nice little piercing simulating the "flutter trail..."
 If you look around the edges of Sam's layout you will notice the torn flaps are also backed with black cardstock and the webbing.  All comes together nicely with a little black ink to accent.

These Layouts and Cards are from the March/April Sketches.
Kinda by Rosanne Cook
 In this close up we can see the detail in Rosanne rolled flowers.  You'll also notice that she has fussy cut the image of her daughter and mounted it up.  Swirling nicely along the bottom bracket is a nice bit of stitching with vellum butterflies spread about.  Nice work Roseanne.
 Here we have a Card for the Sketch from Lauren.  She has it named, stamped it, and now it's ready to go!  The border punch looks very effective as well.  Lauren has also made a template of the outside shape, and used this for the inside of the card.
Cammy by Lauren Higgs
Lauren has once again made good use of the beautiful butterfly punch and continued the theme inside the card.
 Happy Easter Card by Rosanne Cook.
Gorgeous little chicks Roseanne, your card has a very simplistic look that ties all the elements in together nicely.

I would also like to share a couple more projects from the Feb/March Sketch that were not displayed earlier due to some MIA non-activity on the Blog. (..wagging again....)
Here we have a Birthday Card where Lauren has used stitching, punching (I really love that Monarch Butterfly punch) and layering of the flowers.

Swing Free by Lindy
Lovely colour combination Lindy, gives you a real sense of spring in the air.

Thanks for sharing everyone, as always it's great to see how different your work can be from the same sketch or pack.  I will update more for you shortly...
