Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
This is a scheduled post as it is my youngest daughter's birthday today and we will hopefully be out for lunch when this goes live.  She is 24 today.  Really makes me feel old lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme this week is a nice easy one for you.
Anything Goes
You can enter any type of project you like as long as it fits the challenge theme.

We have 3 sponsors joining us for this challenge:
Oddball Art - prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice
Lemon Shortbread - prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice
Di's Digi Stamps - prize of a $12 gift certificate

Here are my inspiration projects for you.

This first project features a digi image from Oddball Art.  I coloured the image with promarkers before matting onto some cardstock.  The paper is from a First Edition paper pad.  I finished the project with a crotchet flower, crotchet butterfly and some buttons.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Crafts Galore Encore - ATG
Craftyhazlenut's Patterned Paper - ATG
Dream Valley - Stripes or checks
Not Just Cards - ATG
Whoopsi Daisy - Make it girly
Creative Moments - ATG
Sassy Studio - ATG
Patties Creations - ATG
613 Avenue Create - ATG
The Ribbon Girl - ATG with an image

My second project features a digi image from Lemon Shortbread.  I kept this very simple by just colouring the image with promarkers and matting onto some gold glitter card and black card.  I added a bow detail, some faux stitching and some glitter to the tree branches.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Animals or birds
Craft-Dee Bowz - ATG
CHNC Extra - ATG
Dragonfly Dreams - Things with wings
QKR Stampede - ATG
Sister Act - ATG
Brown Sugar - ATG
Sweet Stampin - Anything but birthday
Pile It On - Summer or winter

Come and Get It - Feature a creature
