My first challenge submission

I hope you all had a nice WCMD day and made something. I'm almost finished with the halloween baskets that I'm making for my co-workers, but I surprised myself and also made a card.

Fred she said had a challenge and they also had new images. So I bought the pin-pricking template and I used the big dahlias that I had bought earlier to make this birthday card for my uncle. It's so hard to make cards for men- I hope it's not too "girly" looking- if it is, oh well, at least I tried. LOL!

I used glossy accents on the top dahlia and leaves to make it shiny and then popped it up w/ dimensionals.
It's very simple, but I really like the pin-pricking template, I think I'll be using this alot.

I also submitted this card for the Capture the Moment challenge 2 contest. The inspiration was Mexico- so I used the bright colors of Mexico to make my card.

There are nicer submissions out there, but at least I tried ;)

Thanks for looking and have a great week. I'm trying to finish up the goodie baskets today so I'll post a pic when I can.

Take care!
