ATC,& Card

Evening guys well I have been really poorly all week still not feeling to good now,to be honest but have managed to make this ATC today the card I made a few days ago and forgot to show it so hope you like them.
I stamped the background with a txt stamp then used fired brick to go around the atc,then added the embellishments. I have called this Needle work.
Next my card,i have used one of my new SK images which I just love,then used my  nellie nestie to create the centre of the card then used white card again using the same nestie and stamped SK image colored with my pencils.

I have kept this card,quite simple,the papers are SU and not sure of the other,flowers from my stash,marrianne,swirls,and craft card candy,and ribbon.
Will add challenges,later if you know any that my creations will fit let me know,please.  I did manage to get around lots of your blogs this morning,and spent rest of the day in bed.  Just hope this passes as hate feeling like this,but get my results on Tuesday so hopefully will find out more then.  Take care guys love hugs cheryl xxxxxxx
