Two becomes one!

I have felt absolutely lousy all weekend. My head feels as though it is about to explode, my nose has started running but I have a horrid smell at the back of my nose and a foul taste in my mouth so I think it might be my sinuses.

Yesterday I beaded the bodies for 42 dragonflies for the Order of Service for my mum and dad. I made a couple of dare cards and threw them in the bin!! This morning I decided that, despite having loads of work on, I am going to do at least one challenge or scrapbook page a day. We went to my parents' house last weekend and brought thousands of photos back so I have those to sift through and scan to scrap too. So here is my first double challenge. It is a combination of Sue's template
and Friday's DCM challenge
As a reward for all the brain power that went into the Little Extra this week, this is a simple one. From simple LythanWith a cryptic clue.Which, as I discovered to my embarrassment, when I laid it on the team, is only really possible to understand if you live in the UK. And even better, are Welsh.So... a trio of Welsh Barbers means that on your card you need to have 3 die cuts!( Dai is a common Welsh nickname for David and as there are a lot of Dai's around they are known by their jobs so a Welsh barber would be known as Dai Cuts. I'll get my coat.)
The team roused themselves from their bafflement and came up with these brilliant cards - can't wait to see yours!Here are Lythan's "simple" rules:If you don't have access to die cuts in any shape or from, you can still play along. You can then use punches. And if you don't have punches then you can do hand cutting. See how nice I am?BUT no cheating now! No reaching for the scissors if you have a machine to hand - or even some old die cuts you bought ages ago (that would be me then!) You CAN use punches and scissors etc as well as die cuts though. See, very nice!!
Here is the card
All papers are K & Co. The floral paper is from the 6 x 6 Somerset pad and the others are from the new McKenna mat stack. Flowers are cut using a Cuttlebug die, layered (there are 3 of them) and held together with a Papermania brad. Sticky ribbon is by Papermania too. Stamp is one of the super cheap Studio G range and the diamantes are from my stash.
Back later.

Love the card and the papers you've used. Hope you're feeling better soon - sinus trouble really makes you feel rotten.
