A pile of challenges

I worked quite hard on these, and as I'm staying at my Mum's without all my stash and I was working on the floor not a desk, I feel quite pleased with them! Nothing like blowing your own trumpet, is there!

This first card is for a whole pile of challenges:

Pile it on: Good things com in three's - like my 3 little monkey's!
But in the card sense: 3 ribbons (the 3rd one is hiding behing the flower) 3 flowers (layered, I know it's flimsy!) and 3 papers.

Stamp something: Birthday somethings

Get sketchy Well that was the sketch!

Pollycraft: Favourite things

This definitely uses my favourite things, my nesties and big shot! How did I cope without them? Well, no more dodgy circles for me (well not many anyway!)

Image - Digistamp The Pianist from Digisparkle
Card blank - Elco, Square
Paper - Paper pad free from Quick Cards made Easy Magazine
Flowers - Papermania elements and mini silver brad
Ribbon - Glued flower and straight navy blue ribbon & white sparkly ribbon from stash
Sentiment - Papermania mini birthday clear set
Derwent Coloursoft Pencils, Sansador oil, silver gel pen

This second one is using the sketch from Friday sketchers. I really like Robbie the robot but couldn't work out how to use him. I'm still not convinced it has shown him off properly, I think I needed different colour stars, I don't know. Any suggestions? Please be honest, it's the only way I'll learn! Oh and the blue doesn't look very blue in the photo; I need to practice my photography as well as my colouring!
