Couple more Daring Cardmakers Cards

I forgot to upload my card from last weeks Daring Cardmakers so here that one is first:

This one was a recipe dare and had to include:
An Aperture of some kind
Something beginning with the letter P
A Die-cut or Punchie
The colour Blue

I used lots of left over bits and pieces from the Jan/Feb Quirky Kit, the paper, the Polaroid frame the Thickers letter stickers and the bird paper which was a notelet I cut to fit the frame all came from that kit. For the something beginning with the letter P I used my new paper tape I got from Paperchase and watercolour paint that I made an ombre paint effect with on the yellow strip of card. I wasn't sure if the Polaroid diecut would also count as the aperture so I also punched out a star from the front of the card. It just looks white on the photo but that is the inside of the card. :)

On to this weeks dare and as it's the first week of a new month it's a Colour Combo challenge. The colours for this month are pink, gold and mint:
And here's what I came up with:
I took inspiration from the images as well as the colour combination for my card and picked out chevron and woodgrain patterns and flowers. Most of this again I made up using paper scraps from stuff I've been working on already. The gold thread is from this months' Quirky Kit as is the woodgrain paper scrap and the peg and white flower. The chevron paper and grid paper is from the Jan/Feb kit and the 'You Rock' paper bit is an Echo Park paper that was from the December kit. You can defo tell I've been using up all my leftovers this past few weeks! ;-D The flowers are Prima ones I think they were in my junk jar on my desk.
Head on over to Daring Cardmakers and have a go at this weeks challenge and see the design teams awesome creations! http://www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com

You wouldn't have thought these were made from leftovers - they look main course to me! (that says something about how fab the kits are in my opinion)
