Three challenges and a winner

I´m overdoing myself... I never participated in three challenges at the same time doing three different things! but I´m enjoying myself a lot!!

The first one is for the Softpencil challenge #16 at PCP, the challenge was to make a friendship card:
I used this cute image Taking care of flowers by Elizabeth Pujalka, colored with colored pencils, papers are from Summer Driggs, sentiment is a dollar stamp that I attached to the card with a brad. On the inside I wrote Like flowers, friends need to be taken care of.

The second one I made it to participate on Challenge #14 at Michelle Perkett Challenge Blog:
I called it The Queen of the day, I used Queen of hearts by Michelle Perkett colored with colored pencils and the papers are from Kimberly Lund. The challenge is a sketch challenge and I changed the central oval dedicated to place the image by a heart and placed my image on the side, hope it counts!!

An the third one is an altered plastic box I made to participate on Challenge #1 at Michelle Perkett group on SNR:

the challenge was to make a project using Michelle´s Dragon Dream image. The box is a box we store paper membranes in the lab I work, we emptied and it was going directly to the trash, sooooo... I couldn´t help myself and I saved it from its painful death for future use, and I did it just this afternoon! I colored the images with colored pencils, put some rhinestones as their heads, and the sentiment I found it here (a wonderful quotes finder).

An last I want to show a card I did for Softpencil Challenge #15 at PCP and I won the challenge!!! WhooHoo!!! Thanks Elizabeth!!!! the challenge was to make a card with our favorite layout:

I colored with colored pencils Three hearts that Elizabeth so generously gave us as freebie, I´m completely in LOVE with this image... I like a lot to color mandalas, so these hearts were whispering to me "color us... color us...!!" as soon as I saw them. Because the challenge was to use a layout of our liking I chose this one because of its simplicity, it fits so well with me... and the main focus is the image, something that I wanted from the start. The colors of the card were chosen to match the ribbon... crazy, right? but that´s what exactly did... I wated to use that ribbon, so the rest of the card have to complement it. I colored the butterflies in the centrar heart with green to break a bit the 2 color scheme I was using and added some glitter glue to make it sparkle a bit. This will be my Valentine´s day card for my sweetheart, I hope he likes it!! (it´s a winner, so he MUST like it! hahaha)

It´s been a long week at work but I´m so glad it´s done, so now I have the weekend to enjoy!! Enjoy yours also!
