Three for World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day so I just had to make some cards to celebrate!
I've got 3 creations to share - each made for a different blog challenge.
My first card was inspired by the Cas-ual Friday's challenge - Sequins & Chevrons
The Chevrons were made with a die from MFT, I used a stitched mat die from Lil' Inker Designs for the top panel.  The sentiment is from Cas-ual Fridays Woot Woot set.  I used some flower sequins for the bling.

My next card was made using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch
and also the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge - theme: Halloween
 I die cut a circle out of the blue Coredinations panel, layering it over a yellow panel stamped with this wonderful Vintage Witch from Waltzingmouse.  I sponged the yellow circle with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.  I stamped the sentiment on vellum and adhered it over the center of the circle cut out.  I added 3 enamel dots to the top corner.  The blue panel is layered over a white card base using form dots.
And my final card for this momentous day was made using the Cas(e) this Sketch
I made a Thanksgiving card using these lovely stitched leaf dies from Lawn Fawn that I recently added to my die collection (!)  I popped up the leaves on foam dots and added a few flower sequins for a little shimmer since I had them out on my work table for my first card!  The sentiment is from Lil' Inker Designs.
Phew!  after not stamping since last weekend - I really got to work last night to get these done for today!  It felt good to get my hands inky again!
