Daring Cardmakers and Basic Grey challenges

Okay I managed to fit 2 into 1 for this card!!! I used Basic Grey and Daring cardmakers challenges to make this card. Basic grey challenge was to use hearts so I made this heart flower with stella ruby papers. I stamped them with a magazine freebie heart stamp into a flower and cut it out and added a gem brad. Daring cardmakers challenge was to use as much green as possible in your card. I didn't do the double dare which was to make a get well card. I used turquoise and green and grey for the swirls and green paper for the heart flower. So simple but effective I think?! I am feeling a bit scared tonight as last night there was a rat on our second floor landing!! The council refuse to come and see to it over the weekend. Wonder if we stopped paying the rent for the weekend, they would mind. Anyway not seen one so far tonight!! Will have to wait until Monday morning to get it properly sorted.

Stunning card Pascale! I love how you interpreted the hearts for the BasicGrey challenge and the colours are stunning. Sorry to hear you can't get anything done about the rat until next week, I hope it doesn't turn up again tonight. Chris x

Love this card - colours, comosition - in fact everything ! and what a great idea. May have to borrow this idea (if you don't mind) as they would make brilliant St. Patrick Day cards.

Gorgeous card and fantastic colours, Great creation Pascale!!! Sorry to hear about your rat scare, couldn't imagine them indoors would freak me out, only seen them outside and the council came every week to check and clear them!
