Card for two challenges


Well, I'm out of my comfort zone again by using 4 patterned papers - yes 4 - on one card!!  I might use a few but four isn't the norm.  Not sure if I like the ones I decided to put together or not.  They are all Funky Fairy downloads and so is the gorgeous Funky Fairy.  It was recently Shaz's birthday and she reduced the price of her downloads so it would have been rude of me to ignore her birthday gesture.  It certainly made my limited funds go much further as I make all my cards and give 50% of everything I make to charity.  I chose some gorgeous papers but couldn't resist these fairies and also some Christmas images.  I even got the sewing box out and sewed the buttons onto the card!!  I used a Spellbinders flower die-cut as my X-cut punch seems to be giving up the ghost even with trying foil and lightweight sandpaper in it.

This fits the bill for two challenges:

Funky Fairys Challenge Blog - recipe:  1 ribbon, 2 flowers, 3 buttons and 4 patterned papers
Dare You to Dig Stamp Friday Challenge Blog - ribbons

Hi Kym,
Thanks for the advice about IE. We hgad this conversation a few weeks ago. I installed Firefox on my desktop but it's worse than IE so I think I must have a duff installation, (even though it's been updated on the web). I may take it off and start again. I'm on my laptop at the moment where I always use Firefox and I'm whizzing round the blogs. Odd that isn't it. I guess I'll just have to stick to the laptop for blogging and the desktop for other stuff. Anyway, I'm here now and there's a great selection of cards since my last visit. Carry on the good work.
