Challenge 24- Over to the dark side

It is Cazzy's turn to set the challenge....I don't know if she was feeling a bit grumpy or something when she set the challenge, but she decided on Over To The Dark Side....
Our sponsors for this challenge are The Stamping Boutique  and Doodle Dragon Studios. Both are offering prizes for the best entries as judged by the Design Team, so pop over to Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog to find out more and enter.
Here is my entry:-

This was a challenge for me as I don't really use a lot of dark colours and non cute images really. I couldn't resist adding some hand made flowers and a bow and to make it a bit girly! The image is from The Stamping Boutique and is called Goth Girl.
Hope you like....

Quirky Crafts Challenge 23 - Layer it up and Let it Snow

Hi Everyone!

The new challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog is Layer It Up and Let It Snow. We have two sponsors this time, The Cutting Cafe and Dustin Pike at Doodle Dragon Studios. So prizes are on offer if you are the lucky winners.

The challenge being layers immediately made me think of this style of card, which I believe is a Double Concertina Cascade Card, quite a mouthful. Also a bit of a pain to make. Templates are available to download online for free, but they need careful measuring and scoring to make sure the card is level when completed. That is not so bad in itself,  ut what I really hate doing is working out the sizes for all the panels! I have been intending to make a cut file for this style of card for now I have. I will make more of these now they are going to be easier. The Let It Snow frame is from Cutting Cafe and has been cut down to fit the front of the card.
