Sew Many Challenges Blog Hop & Challenge

Hi all hope you are well and enjoying the Easter holidays before I get onto my post I would love to share some wonderful news with you all  I have been chosen as one of the new DT for Sew Many Challenges. 
I was so thrilled when I found out as I have always loved working with the Sew Many Animal characters and now along with the new releases this is going to be a wonderful experience not only for me but hopefully for you as well.
This week saw the launch of a new blog hop at Sew Many Challenges where you have a chance of winning one or more of the brand new super super cute images from Angela.  If you haven't been over to have a nosey then please do so it is well worth the visit. The Sew Many Challenge this week is 'Folds' this could be gatefold, tent fold or any other fold that you fancy having a go at,  below I am showing not one but two cards I have made using a different technique the first one is new to me and I just love the finished card which is called a tri-fold.
I used basic white card stock added some backing paper which I think is Basic Grey the pink lace is the MS border punch and is my favourite so far. I added some gems and adhesive ribbon on the centre inside panel the scallops are from my SU stamping set and punch and this is the first time I have used it.  I just could not resist using my all time favourite image Jovi who I have coloured with pro markers and mounted on nestie scallops.

This second card is the 'crossover' card which I have always loved and this one I am entering into a few other challenges as well. I have used Purple and Turquoise for this one and again coloured Jovi with pro markers but this time with purples I added some Cosmic Silver Glitter, ribbon and flowers.

The other challenges I am entering this one into are:
C.R.,A.F.T.   - Purple and Turquoise 
CHARISMA CARDS  - Animal Magic
CRAFTY CREATIONS   - Anything goes
I hope you like these and find in some way a little inspiration hugs to all see you later.
