Another two .....

Today I am sharing another two of my cards that were recently published in Creative Cardmaking magazine.

As I said yesterday, I was commissioned to create 5 Mother's Day cards and each one had to be achieved within a 20 minute time limit.  When I say that each card had to be achieved within 20 minutes, that did not include the planning of the card or deciding on which image/papers to use etc., it was purely the time taken to actually put the card together.


For this card I used a decoupage image from Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky Decoupage Sheets, I only used one layer of the decoupage and a sentiment from Pink Petticoat.


I added a scrap of woodgrain paper from my stash and the scalloped border is a Clearly Besotted die.

For the second card I used papers from Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky From the Heart of the Garden CD ROM and created another CAS card.


The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat again and I just added a knotted piece of.ribbon.


I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

CD Sunday Challenge - Floral Frenzy
Crafty Gals Corner Challenge 6 - Anything Goes Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge 3 - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar February Challenge - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create Challenge 110 - Anything Goes - Optional Twist: CYOC: Color Bingo

Thank you so much for visiting today, your company is much appreciated.

Ooh these are both gorgeous Pauline… I love the wonderful decoupaged flowers on the first card! and such a lovely sentiment too!
and the second card is CAS done beautifully… the paper is SO beautiful and I think it's sometimes nice to show it off like this without a lot of embellies! the ribbon/bow is just perfect!
Hope you have a lovely evening!
