Imaginisce Monthly Challenge Round 1

One thing that i love about scrapbooking is that there's always lots of scraps left over to do cards!  And that's what i did to participate in this Imaginisce challenge... used up my leftovers! The deal was to use mostly Imaginisce products (although all i had left pretty much from the collections i decided to use was paper, so hopefully it amounts to enough) as well as this sketch as inspiration...
And to make it a little more challenging, we also had to follow these 3 requirements: 3 patterned papers, 3 colors and 3 embellishments (March is the 3rd month, after all).  I love this challenge, and since it's all about 3's, i made 3 cards! 

You're So Cool!
3 patterned papers - Summer Cool (Blue Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Sorbet, Flipsicle Twist Paper); 3 colors - blue, green, yellow; 3 embellishments - chipboard sticker, gems, brads

Princess Birdies
3 patterned papers - Fairest of Them All (Magic Meadow, Sweet Satin Ribb, Be Back by Midnight); 3 colors - pink, green, blue; 3 embellishments - ribbon, flowers, bling

Wild Things Birthday
3 patterned papers - Wild Things (Bamboozled, Hip-Hippo-Ray!, Zoophabet); 3 colors - green, blue, brown; 3 embellishments - ribbon, buttons, leaf

I had to make a 4th card this weekend (a special order from the workplace) which i'm obviously not submitting to this challenge since it was not made using Imaginisce products (i used Basic Grey's Marjolaine collection for this one), but i did base myself loosely on the same sketch and game plan (inspiration goes around!) and i still want to share it with you...

Now i hope my week will be as creatively productive as my weekend was.  Have a good week everyone!
