Gloves at the ready!

The dare over at Daring Card Makers is to make a 'shaped' card so this was the perfect time for me to complete a project I had started a couple of weeks ago! This card is also my entry for the 'mens' theme for Papertake Weekly and I'm also going to enter it as a 2nd card for the Dies to Die for blog candy.
just to prove it is a card here is a side on pic. it has a back piece attached so you can stand it up, and also write your message on. Yes it is a real packet of seeds, so a card and pressie in one!
This next card which I love also covers 2 seperate challenges, firstly I used the new sketch from Stamp Something and over at Cute Card Thursdays you have to used 'patterned paper'.

I nipped into the shop to see Kim in regards to the bridesmaid thank-you examples I had done, she said the lady loved them and would like 4 for the bridesmaids and 2 the same but with different wording for the mums, and also 2 for the ushers and 1 for the paige boy, so an order of 9 cards woo hoo..!! This is what I needed to get my cards out there to be seen, who knows this could lead to future orders! I will show you when they are made!
