More Cards for the OWH Birthday BashVCMP

Here are a few more of the challenge cards for the OWH Birthday Bash VCMP and I'm not done yet! This card is for the #4 Pick a Number challenge over on Julie's blog Handmade By Julie. Julie's challenge is to choose a number between 1 and 85, go to the list of sketch challenges and pick the coordinating sketch challenge with the number you've chosen, and then make a card using that sketch. I chose the number 65 so I'm using sketch #65 for my card. I used PTI Berry Sorbet cardstock and ribbon, and a scrap of polka dot DP, along with a SU! sentiment.
This card is for challenge #5 Falling for You over on Sybrina's blog Scrapping with Purpose. The challenge is to use your own interpretation of something "falling." Not that I visualize falling pumpkins, but I do think of them whenever fall draws closer, so instead of things falling, I went with a fall theme. I used this SNSS Fall Time Cocoa set for my card, paper piecing the pumpkin.
This card was done for the #7 challenge to make a non-traditional colored Valentine over on Dixie's blog "What's Next." I used Pacific Point cardstock for the base, and you don't often get a lot of blue Valentines, so this one is very non-traditional..........even if I did emboss a ton of hearts on it :)
And this card is for challenge #9 to use this week's #86 sketch challenge over on the Stars and Stamps blog, and make an "any hero" card. I used an A Muse stamp set for the sentiment and all Bo Bunny liberty DP, along with some real red and navy card stock.
I still have quite a few of the challenges to finish, and I don't know that I'll get around to doing them all, but I'm adding a sizable stack to my next OWH box!
Thanks for stopping by again.........there will be more posted soon.....hopefully :)

Thanks so much for playing along with "Falling for You." I love that each person's interpretation has been so different.
