Mesh Flowers

Here is my DT card for the new challenge at

The theme this time round is
Autumn colours

The main focus on my card is the flowers that are made from a copper Mesh ribbon which has been formed to make flowers. 

I have made a background decorative panel by masking of a panel just off centre and colouring it with distress inks and then stamping over it with a word stamp. The flowers have been completed with some die cut leaves and large pearl brads in the centres.

Please pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at the other lovely inspiration made by my fellow DT members.

Strawberry Patch

It's Time for a new challenge over at 
And I am thrilled to say that after completing my guest DT spot for them they asked if I would like to stay on, and I was happy to say yes.

The theme this time round is
Something for a child

This is such a cute image of a little girl with her Strawberries. She is called Strawberry Girl and is from Mo Manning. I have die cut her out and layered the image on to Marianne die. The background is a nice coordinating stripy paper. And there is a little bow in the corner decorated with a strawberry button. For the sentiment I have used letter beads, which could be threaded onto a cord to make a bracelet for the recipient.

Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow DT member have made to inspire you.
