Card Challenges...at last!



It's been a long time since I managed a card challenge, or at least it seems that way. I was determined to complete at least a couple today as there are quite a few that I would like to enter this week.
My first card is for My Time to Craft's challenge of "Seasons". The gorgeous image is from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD and has been mounted onto some copper miri card. Three antique style buttons have been set down the side, again mounted onto miri card and the card is finished off with a couple of copper feather style embellishments, some little red beads and some Stickles black glitter glue.
My second challenge was the Tilda and Friends ATC which this week was "Lavender and Lace". The sweet little Tilda image was sent to me by a crafting friend Denise (check out the lovely creations on her blog) and she has been coloured with pencils using paper stumps and Sansador and highlighted with Stickle 'Diamond' glitter glue. The background was made using a paper doiley and adding touches of Stickles 'Frosted Lace' glitter glue. The ATC was finished with a little flower embellished with a lilac heart gem.
