Over on Crafts by Carolyn forum there are a couple of challenges/comps running. First is a challenge to make a card involving some element of tearing. I have done a simple birthday card incorporating a torn greeting.
The second is a competition sponsored by Tracy @ Creative Treasurers. The challenge is to make a card using blooms and ribbons. Here's my entry which is my Mum's Mother's Day card for this year.Both cards were made using Making Memories papers, cuttlebug embossing folder and bits from my stash.
Finally, I have done this week's DCM Dare. Jo set us the challenge of making a card using aluminium foil. I found this one really tough. I'm not really happy with the end result but at least I finished it (The photo is really bad - I think the card may have realised I was sulking with it!)
The foil element is the frames which were cut from aluminium foil stuck on card using a Cuttlebug die. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and BG Perhaps paper.
