My contribution:

Please remember to go have a look at the inspiration from the team
at the 'Lets Craft and Create' challenge.

A big thanks to everyone that took part in our last challenge...
145 ANYTHING GOES + Option Green things. 

Now for this challenge there is a little gift up for grabs: 

A 'Stampin Up' Hodgepodge Hardware embellishment kit. (200 piece kit) 
contains different sizes silver frames and brads.

Good luck.

Now here a a couple of extra little more close ups of my card.

don't have a butterfly embellishment somewhere.

DO-AL(l) Creatives -Challenge #28 - My Zodiac Sign.

Welcome to the April challenge from DO-AL (L) creatives: 

The theme for this challenge #28 is 'My Zodiac sign'

And our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp  


Now my zodiac sign is:


Cancer (21st Jun to 22nd Jul).



I have made a birthday card because as well as being my zodiac, it is also one of brothers and 2 of my nephaws and my nieces zodiac. Not to mention my mother and father -in-laws.  I also celebrate my actual birthday with 2 of my relatives and 3 of my work collegues.
The card will certainly be used. 

And here it is: 


I used real shells from Waitarere beach on the card.
 Here are a couple of close ups




Hope you like it. I look forward to seeing your zodiac sign card. 

Happy crafting
