Challenge 2 - No paper keep it clean!

I have joined a brilliant challenge blog over at :

Which is run by my friend Polly and some other lovely ladies. I really enjoy making cards and sometimes it is nice to have a challenge and share your creations with other people.

This month the challenge was:

"NO PAPER - KEEP IT CLEANNow, before you all panic, it is easier than it sounds. We all love our designer papers, don't we? But you can also achieve some wonderful results when you don't use the papers. So why not give it a try? You just might amaze yourself. "

with a fabulous prize too!!

I thought I would give this challenge a go and see how I fared seeing as mothers day was looming! No paper hmm.. harder then it sounds for me.. I had just purchased a Prima cd and decided to print one of the images onto my cardstock:

I would never have got round to using the CD lol but this challenge really kicked my butt into gear so thanks Creative card crew - look forward to next week!
I get really annoyed over my bad photographs (the one I just posted wasn't very good either Grr!) So I retook the Magnolia card so that it shows the natural colours.:
I think I truly am a lunatic LOL what can I say..
No posts in weeks.. 2 in one day.. you lot are spoilt I tell ye :D
