Taking the plunge

 After seeing Jan's post earlier I mosied over to Crafting for all Seasons to take a look. It's a brand new challenge blog and they're looking for a Design Team. I decided to take the plunge..........nothing ventured.....nothing gained as Jan said! That was the easy part......then I had to pick three cards to showcase....this was my final three:

A bookatrix made for my sister's Silver Wedding a wee while ago. It is mounted on an A4 card, layers are made from a mixture of vellum, card, stardream paper and acetate. Card is finished with peel offs, ribbons, a butterfly, hearts and a handmade bouquet.

I like the paper combination on this card and it was only my second attempt at this type of card. Stamps are from LOTV and the papers came from Costco. Image is coloured with watercolour pencils. Finished with a piece of raffia lace, flowers, buttons and pearl hearts. I've used several Spellbinder dies in the construction.

I found it difficult to choose between this Less is More and my Touch of Red entry but finally settled for this one. Stamp is from Penny Black and is coloured with watercolour pencils.

Now I'll just have to wait and see what happens........wish me luck......I think!!!
