Card for Six Challenges

I vowed that after I unpacked my craft items after the New Year (as my craft space is the dining room table and with the festivities it wouldn't have looked good with my craft stuff piled at one end!!) I would use things up in the boxes on my table ie the odds and ends.  So far I have done well.  The silver metal card and the decoupage were in this box and they have been used for this card.  This is the third card I have made out of some lace I won in some blog candy so I think that's pretty good going.  The mat underneath the decoupage (I was given this so don't know the make) is from a set by Papermania Signature Range and called "Chatsworth Notelets" and there was 20 for £1.25 so a good buy.  Some are plain like this but others have lines on for journalling but I thought they'd be good for something different on the inside of the card.  The sentiment I got from Funk Fairy before she shut her shop.

This card fits the criteria for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog - Anniversary card

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge Blog - Heavy metal - I have used silver metal foil card

Paperplay Challenge Blog - Precious metals - again the silver metal foil card

Our Creative Corner - 3D

Saturday Spotlight - Theme of love without the use of hearts

Three Clover Designs Challenge Blog - New Year's Resolution to represent your goals for 2010 - I have three resolutions (1) to gain more experience with using Promarkers and other colouring mediums with stamped and digital images (2) to get some experience of using a brayer (3) to use up the odds and ends in boxes on my dining room table - so this card represents no (3)!!!
