Daring Cardmakers

It's been FAR too long since I last did any of the dares over on DCM, but this week I've managed both last Friday's dare and the little extra.

Last Friday's dare, in honour of DCM's 1st birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!) was:

The subject is, as in our original dare "friends", but this time the title is CIRCLE of FRIENDS and we'd like you to incorporate at least one circle into your card
For this card I used the Chalk Garden kit from Scrummy Stash cafe, the flowers with circle centres were perfect for this dare and were cut from one of the patterned papers and the stamp is by Doodlebug.
This weeks little extra was a sketch challenge, and rather than use the sketch for the overall design, I scaled it down and made this cute little button arrangement for a baby card. Papers are by Pebbles Inc, the metal embellishment is AMM and the brad and rub on are HOTP.

Two great cards Looby. Love the funky flowers with their psychedelic swirly centres and the baby boy card is really sweet.
