52 Card Challenge catch up!

As usual I'm playing catch up with the 52 Card Challenge. In fairness I had made these cards a couple of weeks ago I just hadn't had the chance to blog them! 

Wk22: 50 shades of green 
For week 22 Nat asked is to use predominantly green on a card. I went through my scraps bag and pulled out all my green paper but then I was stuck as to what to do with them. So in my normal fashion k did a lot of faffing and decided to add a pop of another colour to help break the green up. In doing so my card does seem to be more pink than green but never mind! 

Wk 23: photo inspiration 
For week 23 we were given another pin to use as a starting point for our card
I picked up on the aqua and yellow colour scheme along with the floral pattern and little birdie to make this 
The floral scallop is a Papermania die cut which came in an old kit. I also used some very old K & Conpany rub ones and an MFT stamp. 

Wk 24: Chevron, Glitter & a number 
For this week we were given three prompts: chevrons, glitter and a number. 
I used my Stampin Up chevron embossing folder on a scrap piece of card for a background. I then used scraps of Amy Tann & American Crafts paper to add to the boldness. I had intended to use a glitter number 1 from a set of Thickers where I only have numbers remaining, but when I looked at the set I had in mind the 1 looked more like an L! So back to the drawing board I used a number 1 from a Deer Lizzy set and a glittered heart button instead!
