Card Shark Challenge

I am participating in the Card Shark Challenges over on the Scrapbook Nook site. The first (aka ZERO) challenge was to implement a stamp, hidden sentiment, black, and ribbon. Here is my take on that challenge using my Edward Stamp.

I used some of my Copics. I have not taken any classes but I think I did fairly well.
Maya Road envelopes
Greeting Farm Stamp
Making Memories paper and alphas
Pink Paislee brads
Prima flowers

Challenge 1 was using Phase 10 card game as a sample Your first phase was to use one paper background, block of paper or card stock, one strip of paper or trim, and one decorative edge then take a picture. For phase two you embellish that card base. Here is Phase One:

And here is Phase 2:

I believe this was the December 2010 Nook kit and I just added some Red card stock and Cat's Eye ink.

Challenge Two was Solitaire challenge to create a card to cheer up someone lonely!

I love how this card turned out. I decided to keep the kettle its natural wood tone. This is a Nook kit from Summer 2010. I think it was June but please don't hold me to that.
Websters and LilyBee patterned paper
Kaiser Craft wood embellishment
Websters alphabet and doily
EK Success border punch

And the last challenge (Challenge 3) for this week is the Uno Challenge. For this challenge your card has to have the number 1 displayed on it. As you can see my ribbon has ones all over it.

This is also the December 2010 Nook kit.

I have really enjoyed these challenges thus far. I was worried that while I was on vacation that I would not have ample supplies to do this but I have. These cards are also helping me get my Christmas cards done. I have done 45 thus far but have about that many more to do. Thanks for letting me participate in the Card Shark challenge. I hope you enjoyed the cards.
