Challenge yourself today!

Ok, Ok! So I know by this point you are probably REALLY fed up with me this week...! What does this woman think she is doing? Posting this much in a single week cant be good for the health...! SORRY ;P

I need to post these cards as they were both for a challenge and only run for a week.. Well its Wednesday already so here you go. For those of a weak dispostition who feel their strength waning at all these cards - feel free to close your eyes!

(If youre looking for the DCBD Challenge card... Scroll down!)

Here is this weeks challenge from Stamp With Us. Its a layout challenge and for me was tricky!

While I was struggling with the layout trying to get it to look balanced I realised I should have made a square card. Would have made the process alot easier!

This is a fabbo new stamp set from the US Stampin Up! Catalog called Charming... The stamps are made to coordinate with some really sweet jewelery and Charms that you can change and stamp little panels that go inside... Really sweet!

Recipe. (All SU!)
Stamps: Charming
Card: So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Paper: Tea & Crumpets DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron.

Sooo, sorry to overwhelm you but this card was made from the same sketch and ALSO a Colour Challenge from Diva Coffee Break Design.

Can I tell you... This one made my head hurt! I am still not happy with the card.. Cant get my head around it. But hey ho!

The whole reason for doing this colour challenge was the ribbon... I had a small length in my stash - you know the type you get free on the front of a crafting magazine and as soon as I saw the colours I knew...

Like I said, not 100% happy with it but... Its funny anyway!

Recipe. (All SU! unless stated otherwise)
Stamps: Wanda's Wit and Wisdom, Crazy for Cupcakes
Card: Very Vanilla
Papers: Real Red DSP
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Real Red SU Markers.
Blender Pens. Ribbon from stash.
