DT card for the Poodles Parlour # 8: Tea Party

Hi everyone, well another fortnight has passed and over at the Poodles Parlour
we are on to our 8th challenge already.
This time it's a Tea Party. I used a Poodles digi and combined it with a digi from Floppy Latte Designs.
Added some pearls, glitz, dry embossing, ribbon and there you have it. I always use promarkers when colouring. The litle flowers are a mix of SU and Ek success/MS punches.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges;

4 Crafty Chicks# 55: Embossings (top and bottom parts of the card)
Marks Finest# 72: Use a Punch
One stop craft# 148: Food and Drink

DT Card for the Alphabet Challenge; Q for Quick and simple

Another fornight has gone by and over at the Alphabet Challenge we want to see what you can do for
Q for Quick and Simple.
This card only took me minutes to make. I know at first glance you might think it would have taken longer. Well I have been playing with my 'stuff' all afternoon, and there was a bit of a fence (from Cheery Lynn dies)
I just tried out my new Sunflower die from Cheery Lynn, and the Bingo type Celebrate ticket was just on my desk at the time which I had rejected for a previous card I had made and the leaves which are from MFT designs and had a hole heap already cut out and sitting in a small container. I do that often. When I can't think of a card to do I will cut out a whole heap of stuff and put it in little containers. So when I go to do a card session I can mix and match, and the cards come together very quickly.The only thing that took almost a minute was the colouring of the flower and the inked edges of the fence.
Hope you like it, can't wait to see yours.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

DT Card for the Papercrafting Journey: #19 - Hidden Message

Hi all, well it is time for our fortnightly challenge over at the PapercraftingJourney.
We are sponsered by the Stamping Boutique and they gave us some wonderful digis to play with.
 I chose this cute little 'pocket' pic.
Which I coloured ( promarkers) in orange and pink tones, my new favourite colour combo.
I embossed the red card at the back, used a MS border punch for the orange, a combination of EK Success and MS punches for the flower, and lots of little gems. On the second pic you can see the little hidden message I pulled out for you to see. 'You are my Sunshine!'.
I cut a slit at the rim of the 'pocket' and then mounted onto pink card.
So I could then slip the little tag in, see first pic.
Now I can't wait to see all of your hidden messages.
Blessings Hilde
