Card Challenge Weekend!

My first project of the weekend was to make a card for LCOM as I was asked to be their guest designer again. Their challenge (and my card) will go live on their site tomorrow so I won't put a picture of my card on my blog until then...watch this space!

Next it was the turn of the dollhouse and I found myself a little stumped with this week's Design Dollies Trifecta, the colours were...
These are colours I don't often work with all together. The theme was birthdays and not having children I don't take many pictures of birthday celebrations.

Then came the sketch...
This gave me inspiration for a birthday card. Instead of having the usual shape of card I thought the two semicircles could be the card opening.
So here's what I came up with, using the colours, theme and sketch...

And here it is opened up...

I also wanted to have a go at the Chicken Soup challenge thinking I might get a LO done at last, but when I saw it...
...it reminded me of my very glam friend Ali, who is a flight attendant with Virgin Atlantic. Her birthday is coming up so I wanted to make her a card which had the same glam but vintage feel to it. She loves pink so I thought one of these vintage adverts would be perfect...

Now I just need to decide which one to send her!
Thanks for looking!
