more challenges!

I am having sooo much fun with the challenges just fact I think I may be addicted lol. The first card is for the "Autumn" theme over at Arty Girlz and also for the challenge on 2 sketches 4 u Laura's Sketch #9.

I have used a parchment layer over the patterned paper, then a glittered sticker, loved the colours of the flowers. The wooden bead used to be an earring, I found them in a charity shop and bought them to break up :)

I came accross a new challenge blog yesterday (well new to me lol) called Carol's Paperplayce The sketch is a lovely one by carol and I did enjoy putting this card together. The bodice of the dress is a peel off with a bit of glitter and the skirt is gold tissue paper. Paper and chipboard embellies are from the Retro Floral set I bought a few weeks ago. It is going to be used for one of hubby's granddaughters birthday in February, she will be 15.
