Two Special Cards for Two Special Challenges......

Hi I have two cards for you tonight and both are very special...the first one is for
my very favourite weekly challenge
Lili of the Valley...I just love these stamps and have loads now..I even have some I havent inked up yet!!! anyway..this weeks challenge is Autumn and I knew instantly which stamp I wanted to use for this...here she is...


I wanted to make this lovely Bouquet Fairy look like an Autumn leaf so I used my Polychromo Pencils with Sansodor as I knew I could get the blending of the colours just so..the DP is from a Prima Pad - Fairy Flora...just the thing for this lovely fairy...I added some WO gorgeous roses and believe it or not but I hadnt even edin my box to see what I had to go with the DP's until after I put the card together and I was so pleased that I found these as they were made for this theme...after I glued them on the card I realised that I forgot to spray them with Glimmer mist..so I took a chance and edthem as they are on the card and prayed that I didnt ruin it...lol..it worked thankfully and then I sprinkled with Glamour dust and boy does she sparkle...lol..I finished with a lush organza ribbon and loads of pearls...do go and check out the DT creations they are really lovely and very inspiring...
and my next card is for
PaperTake Weekly Challenge who are celebrating their 3rd Birthday..Yay!!!...Congratulations Papertake Team!!!...they would like you to chose your very fav challenge from the past 3 years...well when I first started my blog back in April 2009 PaperTake was one of the first challenges I plucked up the courage to take part and I went back through my blog to see what the challenge was..and is was Spots & Stripes...so I have chosen this for my card today...


I have used a sweet Tilda and she is coloured with Promarkers...I have used my new MS Vintage Doily punches and I totally love them..added a few WO Roses and loads of bling and sparkll...now the DP's are a bit of a mixture..the Stripey one is from Memory box..but the lovely mint spotty one I havent a clue where it is from as it was a lovely scappy bit I found in my stash.
Papertake are having a Birthday Blog Hop too..so why dont you pop over and have some fun...
Happy Crafting....
Hugs
Jan..xx
