Forever in blue jeans

This week at CD Sunday the challenge is ...Forever in blue jeans. This is my DT card, i have made a 7" x 5" tent fold . i have compiled this card in Craft artist as i find it so much easier to re-size, cut out and add shadow and do a multitude of other things within this program.  I have used a Joanna Sheen CD one of my favorites House Mouse.  I just love these little characters they are so full of fun.
You all seemed to love last weeks challenge and again we have had beautiful entries, your all very talented and give me plenty of ideas to use.
We still have our lovely Guest Designer Sue who made a very beautiful card last week, and this week the  design team have done it again with very varied cards for this weeks challenge , so plenty of inspiration to get you going.
As usual just a reminder, please use something from a Cd and tell us what you have used and we look forward to seeing what you can come up with.
Hugs Sue-b xx

I have been out of action for a few days but last time i was looking at Kevin's lovely cards and he had just entered his favorite 5 cards into a challenge at debby4000 . I have just been reminded of the challenge after visiting  Wendy at crafting purple crazy, so i thought i would take a look and have a go, and here is my selection below. Now i have picked these five not because i think they are my best, but because each one is more or less a first try at doing a different style or technique.  Hope you like them.
