A trio of challenges!!!

Hello I have been inspired by all the lovely comments that I receive from my fellow bloggers and I therefore decided to spend a little bit longer on my cards this weekend. It pays off I think as I feel I have found a bit of mojo that had gone awol! I have been to church and we had a great guest speaker today. I have cooked the Roast dinner, left the washing up for hubby! I made one card for the DCM challenge last night and the others this afternoon. Just waiting for some glue to set and then I can take a piccy.

The first card I made is for the crafty pad challenge. The theme is romance. Red and black for me is what romance is about! What does that say about me? I adored playing with this card.

The second card is for the Colour create challenge. Aqua and peach. The additional challenge is to make your own flowers. I used an elusive image to make the main flower and put seed beads in the middle of a star brad. The other two flowers are simply made from seed beads.

The final card is for the Daring cardmakers challenge which in celebration of Chinese New Year was to make an oriental card without using red and black. I used some stickers by Penny Black and stamp by elusive images.
