The Stamping Chef vs Simply Betty Stamps

Over on Facebook, The Stamping Chef and Simply Betty Stamps are going head to head in a roller derby!

Both artists were offering an image to use and being that both companies sponsor my blog Just Inspirational, i couldn't choose so i did a card for both!

First is Simply Betty Stamps using Bonnie Skullhead and the challenge there was to use Hot Pink, Lime and Black.  Now these aren't my usual colours but i thought i would give it a go! After a bit of tooing and froing and a suggestion of ribbon from my good friend Kate this is what i came up with.
I used a hot pink embossed paper, spotty green paper from Dovecraft and black card to mount it on!  The ribbon is Dovecraft too, the image is coloured with promarkers.  The stars are cut from an Xcut die and the gems were from the £ shop!

Next was KittyPaw Vultura from The Stamping Chef, i coloured her with promarkers.  I wanted to do a pastel one with her as a Good vs Evil but then i looked at the image again and thought hmmmm she isn't a 'good' girl is she! 
The challenge at The Stamping Chef is 3 Papers, 2 Buttons and 1 ribbon. So i chose the pink papers from First Edition and the green from Dovecraft.  The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, the buttons are from the Gorjuss range by Do Crafts and the sentiment is Lily of the Valley. 

I hope you like them both

I would like to enter them into the following challenges:
