Another week, more challenges

Hi everyone,
This week I am entering 4 challenges, I really must make more time for my card making.
This week was my first attempt at using a digi stamp and I think things went fairly well with it although I found cutting the ovals a challenge. Couldn't use Cricut as usual because of printing the image onto it or trying to get Cricut to cut exactly where I wanted. I ended up using Microsoft publisher and then cutting them out myself.

The challenges are:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Food and drink
Cuttlebug Spot - If I had wings
Cute Daisy May - Fairy
Inspirational Card Sketches #59 - Sketch

The image was from Mo's Digital Pencil
I used Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Divine Swirls'
The paper came from a Provocraft 8 x 8 stack
I coloured the image with Lyra Aquacolour and a touch of Daler - Rowney pearlescent tinting for the wings and stars.
Everything else came from my huge stash.

Thanks for taking the time to look, please leave a comment. I like to get feedback, it helps me learn. I would appreciate any tips for photographing cards!

Simon Says

Right, here goes. I am going to try and enter my first challenge if I can work out how to get everything linked.
It is for the Simon Says challenge which is a sketch.
All the materials came from my stash:
the papers are Wendy Irving, Urban Dude Grunge + MRN Designs
the flowers are K & Co.
and I used a Making Memories rub on.
Sorry I don't know where the stamp came from.

Hope someone manages to get to see it,
