I Am On A Roll Plus Did You Hear?

**This post has been edited to add the Create 4 Fun link which I omiited originally, so my apologies for this.**
Good afternoon, well I am certainly on a roll I have managed to make another two challenge cards lol. It has been really nice to sit down and craft in piece and quite.
My first card is for the Peachy Keen Challenge and as soon as I saw their sketch I thought of a film strip but had no idea what to put into it and kept shuffling images around until I arrived at this. Which I have to say I really like now, I was just having problems visualising it.

Here is the end result, sorry it seems a little distant I struggle to get it all in. Click on photo for a clearer look.
Card Base 9" x 9" halved lengthwise - Paper Mill Shop
Designer Papers - DCWV 'Linen closet'
Stamps - Belles & Whistle 'Belle with teddy' 'Warm apple pie' & 'Sisters'
Sentiment - Simon Says Stamp 'Elephant love'
Medium - Promarkers
Flowers - Prima
Border Punch - Xcut
Button, Lace & Thread - Sewing box.

My second card is for the Create 4 Fun Challenge and Roses On Paper Challenge where they have the challenge to use the colours 'Pink, Yellow & Orange' now these are not the normal sort of colours I would use together but the end result is quite eye catching whether that is in a good way or not I am not to sure lol. The Create 4 Fun Challenge sketch was a great sketch to use as I had to apply my thinking cap for those little x's. Plus I used my sewing machine for the first time to pleat the ribbon, it came out a little wonky but I don't think it is too bad for a first try. I cut the little cross shapes on my circut and then outlined them with a white gel pen.
Anyway here is my card for the challenge.
6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - DCWV 'Citrus stack'
Stamp - Belles & Whistle 'Warm apple pie'
Sentiment - The Stamps Of Lie 'Tiny and 2 cute'
Medium - Promarkers
Flowers - Prima
Ribbon - Won in a candy draw from Mandy aka Crafty Fox
Brads - Stash
White Stitching - Signo gel pen.

Also whilst I was over at Roses On Paper I noticed that Belles & Whistle are having a design team call but if you want to enter you will have to be quick as it ends tonight but good luck to all of you that have entered.
