Card Shark Challenge Week 2

I have really enjoyed participating in My Scrapbook Nook Card Shark challenges. This is week 2 which presents with 3 new challenges. The first one represents the game BRIDGE. For this card we had to make a card with a nature theme and incorporate wood or nails. The idea being to use things one would use to build a bridge. Here is what I have come up with this challenge.

I used the wood colored alphas, a big floral embellie, and recycled a Prima packaging.
Items Used:
Jillibean Patterned Paper
Sassafras Diecut flowers
Prima floral centers
Heidi Swapp tape
Cosmo Cricket alphas
American Crafts pen

The second challenge was representing the game "Kings in the corner". We had to make a card fit for royalty. I tried to think outside of the box for this one. I figured since my DH thinks he is king of his castle that I would make a card for him.

Items Used:
Sassafras Alphas
Studio Calico patterned paper, rub-on, and die cut
K & Company frames
Making Memories metal embellishment
Bazzill cardstock

And the final challenge of this week was for the game BINGO. Although it isn't a card game per say one has to use cards to play bingo. For this challenge we had to have a grid on our card.

I loved the grid pattern of this background paper. Most of this stuff was from the December 2010 Nook kit. I cut the chipboard embellishment apart for the words Merry and Christmas as I did not like the big chipboard piece by itself.

Items used:
My Minds Eye paper, chipboard
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
EK Success border punch

I love how this is pushing me and helping me get some Christmas Cards too. Thanks for the inspiration and challenge.
