A couple of Challenges..

This weeks DCM little extra challenge was;

Our midweek Little Extra is titled ‘The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring’ and we would like you to create a card with flowers.Simple? Aww but hold on…….there’s a little twist because we don’t want to make it too easy for you. We want your cards to have flowers on but we don’t want to see any Prima’s or shop brought blooms. The idea of this dare is for you create your flowers yourself, so let’s see what you can come up with.


So I made this card with circles using BG gypsy papers.
The second card is for the Artygirlz challenge this week. Guess designer this week is my lovely friend Sam who makes the most fabulous creations. She set this challenge;
Make something that includes chocolate! Chocolate coloured paper, ribbons, flowers, chocolate smelling embossing powder. A chocolate cake perhaps! The only other condition is that it HAS to include only one other colour (oh ok I'll let you have white too then lol)

I have used shades of blue with chocolate, and it's the first time I have used these stamps to make a postcard effect. The card blank is 'off white' (well maybe cream coloured!) I hope this counts Sam ;O)

I really enjoyed these 2 challenges.
