3rd card for my personal challenge...

well I am on a roll this is the 3 card from the same freebie pack of diecuts and ribbons.... from my stash I added card stock, a basic gray brad, some silver peeloff stickes, I also used a rubberstamp and a cuttlebug embossing folder.
I ender this card into  Day 301 - Super Sketchy Sunday on 365 cards

2nd card for my challenge

this is the next card I made the the die cuts and ribbons..I raided my stash for flowers, button, brads, pearlsand papers,, I used a butterly punch, then some paper edges on the side of the card and a hole punch to get the decorative edge

set myself a challenge

well I don't know about anyone else but I tend to love buying papercrafting magazines,,sometimes because there is a pic of a card on the cover that I just want to make a similar one or else there is an article I just have to read. Well some of the magazines come with freebies too... Usually I give the mags a quick flick through then get distracted with something else...
 Well my challenge to myself pull out these mags. use the freebies and try out diff card ideas from them.
So here is the first of 2 cards I have created using a freebie kit from Papercraft inspirations containing  ribbons, die-cut flowers, borders and some die cut tags
 I also added some embellishments and papers from my stash, I also used  Spellbinders Paisley classic and fluted nestabilties .
I entered this card into Day 302 - Flashback Monday on 365 cards
