Double DT cards

Good morning ladies and men if any read this today.
I have two DT cards to show today. My first is for Cute Daisy May. This is my first week as
designer for them and I am so happy to be part of a wonderful team of girls :)
This weeks challnge is to use Pink and Green, which is great for me as it's one of my favourite colour combos. As always the winner will get their choice of one of the Cute Daisy May sheets.
You don't need to use any of the Daisy May sheets to enter (although we would love to see what you do with them if you have some), so come on and join in the fun.
I would love to see lots of my blogging buddies there, especially on my first week as designer, so please enter if you have the time :)

The gorgeous image of Daisy I have used is from sheet 17, isn't she lovely? I am so happy to be on the design team because I lost most of my Daisy May sheets when my computer got a virus a while back so now I get the chance to play with Linnie's sheets again and the new ones too :) and of course because I love working with these cute images.
Right got a bit sidetracked there, here's what I used
Papers: a mixture of Basic Grey, K&Co and the pink one is from a baby stack but don't know who makes it.
Embelishments: Lace and roses from my stash, other flowers are Prima and one I handcut then ran through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots folder. The charm is from my stash and I added some pearl beads on a string. I ordered flat back pearls and they sent me these tiny pearl beads, half of which don't have a whole right through! So I had to find some way of using them up lol.

Right my second card is my DT card for Squigglefly. It's Kim's teams turn to be featured on the Squigglefly blog this week (that's the team I'm in) and Kim has choose a colour combo this week of Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette and she would also like to see a button on your card.
I did have some Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point that a friend sent me about a year ago but I only had a small piece of each and I set them out to use but my Daughter Rhianna used them!! So I had to just match the colours with what I had in my stash. I actually have no idea what the Stampin Up colours look like in real life so I just went by a colour chart that Kim sent me and choose the closest I had.
You might want to put on some shades round about now because this is one bright card lol.

I love this pixie from Squigglefly she is just adorable. I have coloured her with Copics in the closest colours I had to the cardstock. All the card I have used is from my stash and no designer paper in sight!! That is a first for me I think.
The flowers are all handcut except the smallest ones thatI punched with a little punch I got from an Artymiss bargain box along with 19 others!
Lace is from my stash and I used my Fiskars border punch for the Pink Strip.
Oh and did you notice that I didn't use a button? I forgot to add it and didn't realise until days after I had sent Kim my card....oops!

You can see the rest of Kim's teams cards on the Squigglefly challenge blog and all the other girls on their own blogs, which are on the sidebar on the challenge blog. There is loads of us on the team so lots of inspirationm for you.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this huge post. Please do stop by both challenge blogs this week.

Hugs Lora x
