More challenge cards

This card is for the current 'new home' challenge over at A Time to Craft, the cottage scene is decoupaged, it was my first play with silicone and I liked it, so much quicker than peeling the backs off of sticky pads!! The following card is for the new Daring Card Makers dare/challenge, which is to use beads, could be one, could be many. I threaded beads onto a paperclip and attached this to the left side of the card and also added 3 flower beads to the bottom right corner, these were all from the same necklace, one of many the girls have had and broken! I have also used the My Paper World sketch again. Oh I do love this stamp!
and Finally for tonight this card covers 2 seperate challenges, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and over at Stamp Something the challenge is 'faux something' so yep I faux stitched, it was the first time I did the cross stitch but I think it looks kind of ok around the outside.
I've also made my very first Design Team card for A Spoon Full of Sugar but I can't show you that until after the blog goes live on Tuesday. I am very pleased with it, I only hope it will match up to the other girls work. (You can find the link to the blog on the right).
