Dare To Get Dirty Day 2!

Hello! Well I was able to complete 8 challenges today, but I only made 3 cards : ) I combined a lot of the challenges because there are just sooo many~but they are all so fun!
My first card was a sketch challenge. I really love this sketch, and will definitely use it again! I combined it with the challenge to use a clear element on your project. I used clear Dew Drops around the scalloped circle. This beautiful image is from Prickley Pear called Flower Silhouettes, and the butterfly is from Artful INKables Bouquets and Butterflies set. I colored the image in with some Stampin' Write SU markers and added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers. I used Cameo Coral and So Saffron cs, and the dp is from Summer Picnic DSP~retired.
I know some of you probably aren't ready to see a fall themed card, but I LOVE fall!!! I love the colors, and the fact that the weather gets a little cooler : ) I made this card for the challenge to make a food themed project, and to use ribbon on a card. Hopefully this pumpkin counts! I used another beautiful image from Prickley Pear (I just got a bunch of new stamps from them :) I once again colored it with Stampin' Write markers, then colored the pumpkin with Copics. I stamped the pumpkin again and cut it out to pop it up. I used Chocolate Chip and More Mustard cs. The dp is from Bo Bunny, and the sponging was done with More Mustard.
In case you're mad at me for bringing up fall already, here's a summer card for ya! : ) We are headed to the beach for the weekend, so I pulled out my favorite beach babe~Bikini Bella! This was for 4 challenges~to use texture on a card, die cuts/punches on a card, inspiration piece challenge, and an abc challenge which is why I cut out and spelled summer. I paper pieced her bikini, towel, and bag. I used Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry cs, and the dp is from SU Razzleberry Lemonade. I added texture with my Spots and Dots CB folder. That's about it! I won't be home this weekend, so I'm hoping I can catch up on the rest of the challenges next week : ) Have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!
