[Uniko Studio Challenge] No. 13 - Special Occasions

* This is my 2nd post of the day, the Surprise Bridal Shower for Ren-Yi HERE & my "Get to Know Me' Blog Hop HERE*

Hello Uniko Fans - we are back with a new challenge.

We ALL loved seeing the BUMPER amount of entries we had for our last challenge & we look forward to seeing your entries for this one :) To help get your mojo flowing & increase the number of entries I have 'bumped' up the prizes (seems appropriate with the size of my bump at the moment, not long now!).

The Prizes:
  • A £20 Gift Certificate to the Winner & Guest Design Team spot on the blog for the next challenge
  • Top Three Spotlight & £5 Gift Certificate 

Guest Designers are still welcome to join in on the current challenge too :) 

The Challenge this month is another easy one:

'Special Occasions'

The special occasion could be anything from a Birthday, to a Baby Congratulations or to a Wedding Card to name but a few examples, the options are endless and everyone interprets challenge words differently, but that's part of the fun and creativity! 

I decided to make a couple of cards...

First up is a Wedding card, mainly because I had them on the brain making a Wedding card for DT member Ren-Yi, who gets married in a couple of days. We're having a virtual Bridal Shower HERE if you want to join in & make a card :)

I was also inspired by the current Fusion Card Challenge inspiration photo seen HERE and below, but decided to keep my colours softer, but I was more inspired by the florals! 

Here's a close up of the detail & sentiment...

I've combined a sentiment from Flower Power #3 with the flowers and leaves from Flower Power #6.

Next I have a baby card to share as that is another thing that is on my mind. Two weeks today I will be going in to be induced and finally get to meet the double trouble I've been carrying for the past 7 1/2 months! 

I really enjoyed using the sketch HERE  and below from Freshly Made Sketches on THIS card the other day, that I had to have another 'play'!

All the supplies I have used are listed at the bottom of the post :) Let's see how the Design Team went with the 'Special Occasions' challenge:
