First challenges!

Afternoon folks...I have decided to be really brave and have a go at some challenges! It is rather exciting and I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. It is going into two challenges (get me eh!), The Colour Create challenge which ends on february 10th. The challenge was to be in Lemon, Green and White with the option of using a charm.

It is also going into The Sketch n Stash challenge. This finishes tomorrow evening so I hope I am just in time. There was a sketch to follow and you had to use some new or neglected stash (I used both!).
It is on a 6*6" card. The papers are by Dovecrafts Back to Basics & Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch, both of which are rather neglected stash :-(
The stamp and sentiment are my new Papermania birdsong stamps. I love them already!

I used a Martha Stewart Doily edger punch and cut cirles on my mum's Cuttlebug ;-)

The stamp was coloured with the following Promarkers: Buttercup, Lemon, Lime Zest, Tulip Yellow, Vanilla, Meadow green, Lemon, Ivory, Satin, Leaf green and Pear green. I added gems from my stash to the tree flowers.

I also added flowers, button, ribbon, brad and charm from my stash.
