Fiskateers - CHA CHA Online Crop Challenges

Here are the ALL the challenges from the online crop. I didn't get to complete them all, BUT I did get to 6 of them. After each of the 6 challenge descriptions you'll see my cards for the Challenge.
So here we ....

January always seems to be a time for bridal shows, and wedding planning for all those newly engaged brides.  Let’s start the challenges off with an easy one….create a wedding card for the bride and groom.  Any color, any size, any tools, any shape let your creative go!

Have you check out the Design Team projects lately?  Well now is the time to MARCH on over there and see what wonderful inspiration you find.   Here is the link to the projects:
You will find projects on sewing, cards, layouts, kids crafts, home décor and so much more.
Your challenge is to create something that inspired you from the design projects.  Let us know who inspired you and what their project was that inspired you.
Handstamped use Close To My Heart stamps (some fussy cut), variegated thread and mailed off to My Mom, who has it in a frame!!!!

APRIL SHOWERS! Think Baby, Bridal, Rain showers etc. Shower us with your use of at least 4 Fiskars tools on this project.  Please list the tools you used in your gallery description.
Fiskars Items Used: Fiskars Textured Templates & Tool, Postage Stamp Squeeze Punch(edge of umbrella), Fiskars Border Stamp Set & Ultra Shape Cutter with Oval Template.

Inked up the raindrops and used scrap for all of the papers on the card.

MAY FLOWERS! Since we know that April showers bring May flowers, use a Fikars tool to make a flower and then use it on your project.

Used Fiskars Ultra Shape Tool & Flower/Leaf Templates 

Then layers alternating papers and glueing as I went.

JUNE BRIDES! Let's honor the June brides white wedding dress by creating an all white project. The only exception is that your title or sentiment can be a different color if you choose.

CHA CHA Challenge #7: July - Flags
Create a project using a FLAG . It can be a card- layout- tag-altered art-home décor—whatever suits your fancy. It can also be ANY type of FLAG – A state flag, country flag, garden flag, sports flag, holiday flag, birthday etc.  Please remember to post a pic of your creation in the gallery and then come back to this thread and leave a link to that gallery posting !  THANK YOU !
Create a handmade card with a handmade , matching/coordinating envelope. It can be of any theme/size-- but they both MUST be made by hand and not premade. Have you ever made an envelope out of an old calendar page? some pretty scrapbook paper ? Magazine page? Map? Lots of possibilities to go with the card you decide to make.
Some envelope tutorial sites ( in case you don’t have a template)
Back to school time. TAG you’re it ! Please, create one handmade tag with any theme, any shape or size. ....MUST include somethingorange and something green on it !  
 ( Did you know this years Pantone color is Emerald Green ?)
Leaf it to October!  October makes me think of leaves.  So, make a creation that includes at least 5 leaves (same or different).  They don’t have to be fall leaves, or falling leaves---could be palm tree leaves if you want!
So thankful!  Create 3 different thank you card designs.  The 3 cards should be completely different from each other.  Address and mail them to someone as surprise happy mail. Share with us who/why you are sending them.
