2 cards today

I have been so busy over the last couple of days that this is the first time I've had the opportunity to post anything.

This first card is the the Spoonful of Sugar challenge.

I'm not sure the image is sweet enough for the challenge - but I think it's a cute dragon. I tried using crackle glaze on the dragon because I'd hoped it'd give a scale effect; I think I made the layer a bit too thin though. There are a few cracks but it isn't as good as I had hoped for.

This second card is a late posting of my One Stop Craft Challenge DT card. There is a pink and black colour challenge there this week, set by the lovely Shelley. It's okay to use white on the card too because the rules were 'as long as there is pink and black' on the card it is okay. Unfortunately all my pink card and paper was way too garish and strong in the shades of pink, so I decided to stamp as subtler background in paler pink on the white card stock.

Hope you're all having a great weekend.
