Friday challenge

Just a quick visit to add a card I've made for Nicky's Friday night challenge on the JB forum. The brief is

Create a card using only one sheet of paper. Double sided paper is allowed and recommended. NO inking, doodling or any other embellishments allowed. All components of the card HAVE to be made using the paper only...You can die-cut, punch, decoupage etc.

So here is my first card.





I have used a sheet from my new 12 x 12 Sparkly Sweet pad by K & Co. The papers are just gorgeous. The flowers are just cut from the sheet and decoupaged. The word BLOOM at the bottom was cut using the Thin Cuts Small Stuff alphabet and mounted onto circles cut with the small circle punch by X-Cut.

I've just realised that I haven't uploaded the DCM challenge for today. Today was Keryn's turn to set the challenge and here is what she said.

Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week. This time I asked my family for ideas for this weeks dare and the best amongst a lot of ideas including power tools etc, etc was Lachlan's ideas for Space. It's been his topic at school this term. (Lachlan is seven and in Year 3). To make in a little easier on you all I've called it Celestial to also include horoscopes as well as planets, spaceships, stars, suns etc. How you use these items is up to you.


The image for this card is bt Elzybells and is stamped onto pale pink paper and coloured with Twinkling H2Os It is backed onto a piece of pink striped paper from the first Colossal pack by Papermania. The sentiment is printed onto vellum and held on by mini buttons. The pale pink paper and vellum quote is from a mini album kit I bought a long time ago and found when sorting my drawers looking for something else!
