Double dare for DCM and JB

Firstly, let me say that I'm going completely doolally - in my previous post I said that I was too late for the 'It's all in the game' DCM dare - well, I'm not, because there's not a new one till tomorrow! So I was in time.

Meanwhile, I've done something for the midweek dare: 'Our midweek Little Extra is titled ‘The Flowers That Bloom In The Spring’ and we would like you to create a card with flowers.

Simple? Aww but hold on…….there’s a little twist because we don’t want to make it too easy for you. We want your cards to have flowers on but we don’t want to see any Prima’s or shop brought blooms. The idea of this dare is for you create your flowers yourself, so let’s see what you can come up with.'

I used a template kindly posted on UKS and adapted it to produce one large and one smaller flower shape, with a circle to fit inside, which I then ran through with a CB embossing folder before inking. The holes around the edges weren't done on the robo - they were done with my crop-a-dile.

This also fits the Bank Holiday challenge on JB: 'Get stuck in': Lots of you have been mentioning having this weekend off and soooooo many of you have been boasting on here about all the new stash you've been buying lately

So this challenge should be quite simple really, although maybe not for some of you paper know who you are !!!!

Simply make anything, but it has to be using your most recent stash.....that means cutting into those new papers girls.

So I decided to use some of my new BG Two Scoops paper, as well as using DCWV textured for the flower. The middle layers of the flower are chipboard bits I had in stock (think they're Lisa Bearnson, but can't remember).

Had to make do with a flash photo, but too impatient to wait till morning:
