October Colours

I have a very excited news for you today! Daring Cardmakers are celebrating
 7th anniversary.
I am so proud to be part of this big October celebration. We put together fantastic challenges and dare you to make fabulous projects with lots of prize - give - aways

all you need to do is follow each challenge to create your card and add a link as usual to where you've uploaded your card so we can come and see what you've made.
Come to join us!

As it is first week of the month and that is time for our usual colour combo challenge, we want you to look at the inspirational image and create a card with a rainbow colours on it! 

 As we're celebrating our birthday we'd also like your cards to be birthday themed cards and as an added extra challenge if you're up to it have a go at creating a second card but making it a Christmas card or other extra project based on the ideas you used in your first card.
 To make things more exciting we have each week a sponsor with wonderful prizes. This week it is 
docrafts and the prize to be won are
Poinsettia and Ribbon Bow punches

As if that wasn't enough, we also have a prize from The Ribbon Girl!!  They are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in their gorgeous online shop here
