Another fortnight is over and we have another challenge over at 
  Our challenge this fornight is 
"Are you brave enough"

We are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads

We want you to enter our challenge with a picture of one of your older projects, maybe when you first started card making or blogging and then a new project for our challenge so we can see how talented you have all become and how much we have all learnt along the way.
This challenge should be great fun!
We would be delighted if you come and join in with this challenge HERE. 
Please remember that you project must include a bear or animal on it somewhere.

I wasn't sure what order to put my cards in but decided to add my most recent first as I am quite ashamed at how basic my first card on my blog was.
It certainly shows how my style has changed over the last 3 years and its all down to blogland where I have met so many crafting friends willing to share tips, advice, new techniques etc and also from all the fantastic tutorials out there.

Here are my card details

I used Go Kreate dies to create the card base, adding patterned pink paper before cutting and scoring the stepper part and to cut and layer the image.
I made the gorgeous flowers using a Die-namics die, used a butterfly and fancy flourish die both from Cheery Lynn. 
The sentiment is a clear Little Claire stamp which I mat and layered onto a Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle die cut.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
