Caught Up!!!

Spent the day catching up on various jobs including all the challenge cards I didn't get done this week and today's DCM dare.
Kathy set the dare this week and it was a tough one for me seeing as how we had to leave lots of bare space on our designs. I managed to come up with this very simple design.
Small card piece covered with tissue and inked then mounted onto gold card. The embellishment was in a packet of mixed buttons.......funny button is all I can!!! Our Wendy has set the Tanda Teaser this week and it is a super fun Play On Words challenge.

I have two cards but I have to apologise for the fact that they are not new designs. These are cards I regularly do for the local shop and they are very popular.

....and lastly the Little Extra dare from DCM this week was not my favourite colours at all but I was in the process of using up some glitter card to make cupcakes for some quick and easy cards. The paper was free in a magazine ages ago and I'm surprised I still had it as mostly they go straight in the recycling bag. Cupcake is Sizzix.
Thanks for looking
