Don and Daisy are taking a rest so I have gone for something different this post.
I love this vintage image of swallows round a window and to frame it I used Marianne Design die Petra's bridge.

I stitched the backing paper on to pink card and added some lace down the right side.
I used Anja lace border die on the edge of the floral paper. The die cut leaves and flowers were tinted with distress ink to keep the vintage look. Then I mounted it on magenta card before sticking to the card blank.
Marianne Design dies used LR0142, LR0192, LR0201, LR0276.

I have made an easel card for the Don and Daisy challenge using a scalloped card base and the Daisy Dancing stamp. I also used the sketch from the Crafting for all Seasons challenge for inspiration.

I used Marianne Design die CR1214 flower border on a magenta card base. The orange papers are Raspberry Road.I used MD die LR0116 to frame Daisy and CR1305 for the flower on the left. I added some tiny flower brads to the sentiment and bottom corners of the front.
I used stick on butterflies as the colours seemed to match the paper. Hope you like it.

Pink Bicycle

The inspiration for this card is the Shabby Tea Room Pretty in Pink challenge  and Don and Daisy challenge Butterfly and of cause seeing this picture I had to use Daisy on her Bicycle.

I am also entering it in the In the Pink challenge as Fussy and Fancy. I don't know if it's fancy enough but it is certainly pink.

I used the following Marianne Design dies, LR0156 leaves, LR0157 lavender, LR0192 leaves, LR0201 lace border, LR0224 Just for You and COL1318. 
I added a piece of cheesecloth between the papers and some lace along the bottom. Also used some tiny pearls on the butterfly and a heart gem, organza bow and bought rose.

I am entering it in the following challenges:-

New Home

I thought I would do something different from my usual 6 x 6 card for the Marianne Design Divas Challenge so I have made a basic side step card.

I have used Don and Daisy Moving House and framed it with Passe Partout rectangle CR1242. The paper is Raspberry Road and very 'busy' so I have just used a die cut lamp  LR0267 for an embellishment to the room. Then on the step side I have used fence die LR0205 and the new Lily of the Valley die CR1308 which became, with a little imagination, foxgloves. Also used the New Home die CR1314.

You don't really need a template as long as the measurement for the down step is the same as the measurement for the fold past the center fold.
