3 cards....

....4 challenges. The first card is for the This Thursday Challenge #21. It threw me a bit with the metallic bit. Anyhow....the card is a dufex decoupage and has silver backing paper.....so I think that it qualifies for metallic. I decided to keep it fairly simple and only add the ribbon as an embellishment to keep the focus on the image. I'm pleased with the way the dufex has turned out. Cutting it out with Theo trying to help nearly ended in disaster. I nearly had an ear less cat!
I'm afraid that he still has to learn that not everything is a toy....and I've discovered Pinflair Gel..a bit pricier but a lot better to work with than silicone.



The next card covers 2 challenges. RainbowLady's Challenge #39...Things with Wings......and Daring Cardmakers..Birds. I got a bit stuck with this....but went for fairly simple and traditional.


Finally....Stamp Something Sketch Something challenge. Ooh look.....I've gone all pink and glittery...well only a bit of glitter.



I'm getting better with the camera....but I must remember to take the photo's during the day when thee is natural light! Not that my living room has a lot of natural light at this time of the year....it is north facing and the coldest room in the house.

Lovely cards - the robin one is my favourite though.

Taking photos at this time of year is a nightmare, isn't it? such a short time when there's enough light
