Three Cards Two Challenges!



I wanted to make some Mothers Day cards and the Embellish colour challenge helped me decide which colours I would use. Their colour choice was Pink, Brown and Turquoise, I love these colours together anyway so it was't difficult. You also have to add ribbons to your card.


This was my first attempt and I am pleased with the result, used my new Martha Stewart border punch on this one, a little present from my son for my Birthday. He knows what I like LOL.

Patterned papers from BasicGrey.

This is my second attempt not so sure about this one so I haven't added a sentiment yet.

Butterfly stamp: Hero Arts Papers: BasicGrey



This next card is for a new blog site that I have found called "Daring Cardmakers" Love the inspirational cards on this site. The Dare was to make a return to school card. The main site is based in New Zealand and the children there are just returning to school after their summer holidays hence the challenge. This is a fairly simple card but liked the idea of "an apple for the teacher"

Welcome to the daring Cardmakers Sally.

Someone must have spent a lot of time polishing up the apple on your card because it looks almost good enough to eat.

Thanks for joining us this week.
