I am loving my new Glossy Accents which I bought from the Hobbycraft show a few weeks back!! I am using it on everything! haha  Not sure you can really see it in the picture, but it looks pretty cool in real life, even if I do say so myself! :oD  It brings a flat picture to life!  I am also loving my Elegant Square card! I wish I had a die cut that could cut it out for me, as I had to cut the backing paper out myself, was a bit tricky, but didn't do a too bad a job I don't think?

Anyway, have fun with this challenge everyone!

Pear Tree Designs Challenge 24 - Bonfire Night

Hi all,

Hope you had a great Halloween!  We got no trick or treaters again this year, but to be honest, I'm fine with that!! I usually associate it with being egged...so I'd rather not open the door!

Anyway, back to this weeks challenge - Bonfire Night!!  Anyone doing anything for this?  I will be at the NEC Hobbycraft show so I might get to see a few Firework Displays on my journey back from Birmingham!

We would like you all to produce a card/project which is related to Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes/November 5th! Please stick to this theme only otherwise your entry will be deleted.

Here is my challenge card:




I found a beautiful picture off of Google Images after reading one of my magazines showing different ways of scrapbooking images, and thought I'd do the same for a card!  Unfortunately I am not very good at taking photos when using glossy paper, so I have a glare from the flash.  I have used my fab glitter pen on the fireworks to add some sparkle.

We are being sponsored by The Character Cafe this week.  They are a brilliant digital design website, providing excellent digital images.  They are offering our challenge winner a $10 Gift Certificate to spend on their online store!  Please head over to Pear Tree Designs Challenge Blog and enter your card/project before this Sunday @ 4pm.

Have a good week, and good luck,
