2020 Vision

This week sees the turn of the wonderful Kathy to dare us all, with this little gem :)....
2020 Vision
...now I know that without my glasses I am visually challenged, highlighted to me by Jared this week when he kindly placed my bins in a very safe place only known to himself but luckily, this is a card making dare....

I'd like you to use 20 of one particular thing on a card - be it blooms, papers, brads, ribbons. the choice is yours - you can use other things too, but there must be 20 of one item/ component - not 20 things altogether, that would be much too easy.

For instance, can you use 20 different papers on one card? or 20 Ribbons? Or 20 Blooms - well surely that one sounds easy...



Wow! OK so I went with easy option of 20 flowers but still a challenging dare, but a super fab one at that!



There are 20 Paper and faux chipboard flowers! Paper is from Paperchase - the middle flowery one is actually the back of playing cards also from Paperchase! Brads are mostly from Rachies's shop, eyelets and clip are from Carolyns. Ribbon and letter stickers from stash!

As usual there are more amazing cards on the Dare blog. Can't wait to see what you come up with :)

I wittered on early in the week about some cards that i was going to upload and have finally managed it, so here they are... all thank you cards. seem to need a lot of these at the mo! Not entirely happy with them....




All made with the same paper as the dare card :)

I also recieved a copy of Simply Cards and Papercraft this week. It has the details of the Cardmaker of Year Competition - I did not win, but fantastically was a runner up :) So.... thank you everyone who took the time to vote for my cards! :)

I love your card! The flowers look gorgeous and the colours are so scrummy! I particularly love the paper across the middle of the card with the funky flower design! Well done! I feel inspired to go and create my dare now!

WONDERFUL! Love this dare card - and using the playing cards is inspired! Love all the different flowers and the brads, and all the papers you've used.

All the cards you've put on this post are fab and you've reminded me I need to make some Thank You cards for Hubby to send!
