2 cards, 4 challenges!!



This first card is for the following challenges: the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and BasicGrey Challenges. I used the sketch from secret crafter (sorry Jane, I copied your idea with the eyelets!!), using BasicGrey "Infuse" paper whose challenge is scallops - I used my nesties to make a scalloped oval and coloured the image with my SU ink pads and chalk. I also added punched flowers under the eyelets.
I'm not sure about the greeting - I've only placed it on so far because I might change my mind and add a smaller greeting - what do you think??!!


This second card is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the Daring Cardmakers. I used some Making Memories cardstock, a Penny Black image (their challenge is a sketch this week), and the Daring Cardmakers is also scallops - I made my own version of Threading water using my scallop scissors (would have been easier with the new Stampin' Up scallop edge punch), and made the holes with my crop-a-dile. I made the flowers with my new punch - one of the best punches I now own! Added a SU greeting and some gems.

Great cards Jenny - thanks for sharing them with The DCM
I don't think that first one needs a greeting tbh, I think it would be perfect without - but I struggle with "when-to-stop-itis" often!
