somethin old and somethin blue

When I first started making cards i stumbled across a 'blog" while looking for tutorials .
I had heard of blogs but had never read one. The one I stumbled across was Daring Cardmakers and one of the DT , kathy helped me to link my first entry.
I still enjoy visiting the blog as the cards are always stunning .
This week the challenge is to make your own embellishment and although the flower i made is very small  I am sure it qualifies, I got the idea and You tube link from Dawny P's blog . Although I didn't have the Wild Orchid flowers mine did the trick.
 So I will enter my card for the Daring Cardmakers challenge and then move on to another old favourite site in another part of the world, Annabelles Stamps where i am entering both the monthly sketch and this weeks color challenge of red, white and blue.
I must confess I am never sure how strict sketch rules are so if I have blown it by substituting my row of flowers for your paper strip ... throw me out.(sob)
Lastly I am entering in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge- Anything goes challenge.
Please note that the red glitter settled into a nice flat ,even strip.(don't you love it when your photo os crystal clear and highlights any flaws)
Please pay a visit to these blogs , you will not be disappointed.

    Have just had a look around your blog, you have done some lovely cards, this latest one is great. I have never made cards like this, I do on the computer with collages of photos and rhymes to send overseas. Good luck with your challenges!
