Steampunk Birthday

Hey, made this card for a friend's birthday, this one turned out better then I expected as male cards are hard to create! 
I started by colouring the 'Steampunk Doggy' image in with my promarkers and edging the image with copper ink.
I then used my new die to cut a patterned backing square and a smaller sentiment square. I used a silver backing card, and backed this with a blue dotty paper, edged with copper ink. I used peel offs to create the sentiment square, also edged with copper ink.
I attached the patterned square and image and then added ribbon stuck down the edge of the card. To finish, I added two stripey card candy in opposite corners.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :- 
delightful sketches - one for the boys
creative card crew - masculine
ooh-la-la-creations challenges - it's a man thing
stamping with dragon - it's a dogs life
crafty ribbons challenge - One for the boys

Happy Mothers Day

Hey, here is the card I made for my mum this year...she loved it :)

I started by printing my sentiment and cutting it out with my only cutting die, edging it with pale yellow ink and then cutting a purple backing with the larger cutting die. I then backed the sentiment and backing with a doily.
I edged the backing card with purple ink and then covered it with cream patterned card.
I attached the main sentiment into the top right hand corner of the card and then added purple wavy and white music ribbon to the bottom of the card. I added a butterfly brad to the top corner above the sentiment.
To enhance the sentiment, I added five flowers which I built up from deep purples to lilacs with a brad in the centers. To these flowers, I added three wired gems. To finish, I added two lilac pearls in opposite corners of the card.
