Red daisies

Forever friends just seem to be timeless don't they?
Well I've not added text on this card yet as I've not decided if it will be anniversary  or birthday yet, but I think it might well be more anniversary don't you?

This card again only took me 20 minutes to do and that inculded climbing under my desk for one of the promarkers I dropped , having to move all my paper files at that.

The card actually qualifies for a few challenges and I like that although I do usually start with just one or 2 in mind, the layout and colours, everything else just seems to fall into place, well most of the time anyway.

The first challenge was for the colours of red white and black over at KL stampin n scrappin, which led me to the hearts theme as I love red black and white together they make such a statement and are good for mens cards too.

The hearts led to the forever friends challenge which is hearts suprisingly enough, and I used confetti hearts as I didn't have any heart paper but red and hearts just seemed to define each other.

Using confetti for my background meant I could enter the challenge at Die cuts r us where the challenge is no designer paper.

The layout well thats from the challenge at just cute bears and as I'd used a bear it just seemed perfect.

Finally Totally Gorjuss have a theme of  LOVE and I think my card says that, but it feels so wrong entering their challenge without using a gorjuss girl but when time constraints pinch beggars can't be choosers can they, so I hope they don't mind as much as I do.
Well here's my card, I hate having to take pictures in artifical light when its dark, but spring is coming thank goodness, it will be so much easier to get up in a morning.

Lots of shine in this pretty eye-catcher. That shy little bear holding those flowers is a very sweet image. Great job creating a project for the NO DP Challenge.

Smiles!
