No Stamping

Hi there,
I set myself a little challenge and that was to make a card with no stamping on it. I had loads of fun making this card and will make an effort to do more in the future.
The card will fit 4 challenges this week and they are
Cupcake Craft Challenge - No square cards allowed
Cuttlebug Spot - Favourite flower, I chose the hydrangea
Bitten by the Bug - A card using the bee from Sentimentals cart
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Do something different, I don't usually make tri-fold cards or cards with no stamping.
The card was difficult to photograph so I have taken 2 pics, 1 with the card standing and the other lying down and opened out.

Materials used were
Paper from stash
Cardsock was Bazzill
Flower, watering can and garden tools all cut with Cricut Walk in my Garden cart.
Bee cut with Cricut Sentimentals cart.
Watering can and sentiment mat were embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder
Sentiment was a Making Memories charmed words
Dragonflies were chipboard from Scrapmatts
Rhinestones were Papermania
Little stickers were from stash.

Till next time

Another challenge

I do enjoy the 'no design paper' challenges and would like to enter this card into the Paperplay challenge.
It is a card I made some time ago but has not previously been entered into any challenges.
The images are from a Titanic sheet of stamps from Oxford Impressions.
The background was sponged with blue ink and then I stamped a script stamp to complete it.

Allsorts Challenge

I decided to enter the Allsorts challenge which is not to use any patterned paper. Its amazing what can be created without using the patterned paper. I made a couple of cards and decided to use this one as my entry although I might well put the other one in later. What did I use?
All the cardsock is Bazzil
I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background.
I used Cricut cartridge Heritage for the cameo image
and Cricut cartridge Sentmantals for the mat and border.
Hope you like it.
