Charisma and Inky Impressions DT cards

The new challenge is up over at Charisma Cardz and the challenge this week is "Boy Oh Boy".
If you have been a follower of my blog for a while, you will know that I don't like making male cards and I very rarely make them, but I kinda enjoyed making this one :) I like distressing so it's maybe the fact that I got to distress all the edges lol, but I'm not keen on the way it turned's just too plain for my liking lol.

 I coloured Edwin with my Promarkers as usual, papers are K&Co Hopscotch and I matted with navy blue coredinations...I just love how it distresses :)
I can't remember where I got the raffia ribbon stuff as I have had it for ages, and the only embellishment I used is a Making Memories badge brad which I just poked through a circle of coredinations.

Edwin's close up :)

 There is also a new challenge over at the Inky Impressions challenge blog and the challenge this fortnight is "Shine On". the lovely Vicki wants to see shiny bits on your cards this time, whether it's glossy accents, sparkly embellishments, glitter etc, as long as it looks shiny it will do :)

I think I maybe went a bit overboard with the shiny gems!!

I used the sweet Lili's present stamp this time which you can find in the Inky Impressions store, and of course she is coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are from the same pad but I can't for the life of me remember which pad it is! I used a square doily from Poppy's Cabin (click on the banner in my sidebar to get there) and just left the border showing, then I stuck on loads of red shiny gems. It's just as well they come in strips or else I would of been there forever sticking them on lol.
The flowers are ones from and I have dipped them in dazzling diamonds glitter.

And finally Lili's close up. Sorry about the quality of the pics, I really must get my DT cards made well in advance so I don't need to take pics the night before when there's no light!!

 You have 2 weeks to get your entries in and there's a chance to win a goodie bag, so why not hop over amd enter the challenge and see the rest of the design teams cards :)
