Viva la HYCCT (and Verve!)

Hello friends & followers!  I have three more cards for your viewing pleasure as I slowly but surely catch up on my HYCCT challenges.  The first was for HYCCT1116 - to make a card using a pink ribbon.  I borrowed Verve's Viva la Verve sketch for Week 4 of October to create this card:
There is no actual stamping on this card - the BIG 'i' & 'u' are die cuts from Verve called 'I Heart U'.  The heart is from a heart trio punch by Stampin' Up!  The patterned papers are all from retired SU hostess stacks.    This card also fulfills the requirements of Wags n Whiskers Challenge 66 since I used ribbons & the color black.  
   My second card was for HYCCT1113 - to make a card with a butterfly on it.  I used Verve's Viva la Verve Week 1 October sketch and their Blue Skies set to create this card:
I added pearl accents to the butterfly's body and the tips of its antenae.  This card also fulfills the following additional challenges:

     My last card was for HYCCT1125 to make a birthday card, which I did using Verve's 'Big Wish' set and Viva la Verve's October Week 5 sketch:
The papers are from Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection (I think they work great for autumn too!) and I colored in the cake with markers and adds rows of pink rhinestones around the top & bottom edges of the cake for a little sparkle.  This card also fulfills the requirements of Basic Grey Challenge 56 - Anything Goes with a Basic Grey Product, and Dolce Stamps & Cards Challenge to make a square card with at least one die cut.
     Well, that is all I have for you so far, but I have a lot of stamping in my future as I still have several HYCCT challenges upon which to catch up, so please keep checking back!  Have a great day!!  :D
