Fred She Said and Cute Daisy May challenges

Time for a new challenge over at the Fred She Said Challenge blog and this months theme is "Love", we want to see at least 3 hearts on your creation.
You have until March 28th to get your entry in so loads of time. You must use a FSS image on your creation to enter but if you don't have any, there are loads of freebies which you can check out here, but Tracey has so many great new pretty things that I know you will want to buy some too :)
So here's my card for the challenge.

I used the Corner Rose Digi which is one of the new releases. I resised it (sorry can't remember what % I scaled it to) and printed it out 3 times, then coloured with polychromos pencils and Sansodor and cut them out, cutting the leaves and a bit of the rose off the second image and a bit more off the 3rd so I could decoupage them. You can really see the layers here due to my rubbish photography skills but there is 3 layers on it.
I also added some glitter crystal laquer on bits of the rose the spritzed the whole thing with glimmer mist, so it's nice and sparkly :)
The main papers I have used are K&Co and the spotty piece is Bo Bunny. The flowers are Primas, heart charm from my stash, spacer and ribbon are from my local craft shop and the hearts are ones made from handmade paper that I found in my stash. They looked a bit plain so I some pearls around them to make them stand out a bit more.

My next card is for Cute Daisy May and this weeks challenge is "Flower Power"

I followed the sketch over at Sketch and Stash for this one, with the addition of a few flowers (well the theme is flower power after all lol).
The image is coloured again with my pencils and oms. The papers are Anna Griffin and K&Co , flowers are Primas and two of them are from Tabby Crafts, and the lace which is my new stash is some that Barry bought me when he was in town last week. I could say a lot of bad things about him (he is a male of course lol), but I must admit that he always comes home with something for me if he is in town without me, sometimes it's just some glue and other times he comes back with loads of ribbon or some buttons but he always surprises me with something crafty :)
Oh and the little green gems are some I got from a fellow blogger and are by My Minds Eye.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join in with the challenges.
As always Linnie will give the winner of the Cute Daisy May challenge there choice of oine of her digi sheets and over at Fred She Said, Tracey will give the winner a $20 gift certificate to spend in the FSS store!! So if you have your eye on any of those new releases or any of the older stuff (because they are just all fab!), now's your chance to win some :)
