Yay - 2nd Blog Challenge in a week

Wanted to enter the 1st Blog Challenge that Inked Paws ran but ran out of time so have made a concerted effort this time and here is my entry for their 2nd Blog Challenge - Spring.

I have used Kelly Rhodes Digi image Fawn Dreams, printed twice and coloured the fawn and flowers in separately then decoupaged the flowers onto the fawn.  The background paper was a freebie in a recent magazine.  Dotty ribbon and green card from stash.

Thanks for looking - all comments welcome

1st time entering a Blog Challenge

Ok so I decided to enter a Blog Challenge for the 1st time.  Have been watching several for a while now and just felt inspired this week to enter so hopefully I have done this right.

I am entering the card below into the CD Sunday blog challenge Spots and Dots.

This was made using The Orange Blossom Crafting Treasury Vol 1 CD.

It is a simple easel card which has a decoupaged image on a dotty background and I have used buttons and brads to hold it back.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking

It's Challenge time again.

Hello again

It's 1st of the month, so it can only mean one thing the new challenge on Debbees CDs DT Delights Blog.  Below is my creation using this month's papers.  If you would like to take part in the challenge hop on over and download the free papers.

To make this I printed the topper sheet onto parchment, embossed the outline and cut it out.  I then cut slits at the side of each of the printed ribbon holes and threaded lilac ribbon through.  I printed the topper again onto 120gsm matte photo paper and cut the fans out and decoupaged them onto the topper.  This was then layered onto purple mirri card and one of the backing papers and attached to a mirri card covered card offset to the left.  I then added purple and silver card candi and a lilac bow to finish it off.
The challenge is open to enter till 25th March.

Have fun.
