Dream Valley Challenges

Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  I have had a pleasant easy day today.  As it is bank holiday tomorrow my daughter has popped home from uni for the weekend.  She has her last exam on May 17th and then the agonising wait for her results.  We keep telling her she has to graduate now as we have already paid for the hotel stay in Manchester and graduation tickets lol.

Anyway, I am a bit late posting this, sorry ladies.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges.  Our theme for this fortnight is:
No Squares Allowed

So show us your shapely creations to be in with a chance of winning our sponsor prize from Crafty Ribbons. The prize is a £10 gift voucher.


I used a lovely vintage step card blank from Whichcraft for my project.  I used some pink patterned paper from my stash box which I distressed with some distress ink.  The sentiment that I used as the focal image is a peeloff that I have had for a couple of years.  For embellishments I used some swirls that came with the card blanks, roses, butterflies and some liquid pearls to highlight around the sentiment.
I must apologise for the quality of the photo.  It was quite dark when I took it and the silvery foiled sentiment does glare a bit.

I hope you like and for more inspiration just pop over to Dream Valley.  Looking forward to seeing all your creations.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments - Birthday sentiment
Disdigidesigns - Anything but square
Lexis Creations - Happy Birthday
Fashionista - Shabby or vintage
LEJ Designs - Anything goes
Creative Card Crew - Bling
Totally Papercrafts - Shaped card
