It's Lythan's turn to set the challenge for The Daring Cardmakers this week:
Well, this weeks dare is a little bit retro. As it is the European Day of Languages today I would like your card to feature a foreign language.
This takes me back to one of the very first Daring Cardmaker Dares (November 10 2006 to be precise) which was a similar challenge. So why not also see if you have any cards to show from 5 years ago to see if your style has changed?
I didn't see the second bit of that till this morning, so I'll have to scroll back and see if I can find my card for that one - I do remember the challenge, but I don't remember what I made.
Here's my card for this time though
I couldn't resist another chance to get frilly and flowery. could I?
All the following from Creative Treasures:
Cream Lace, black "Mystery" ribbon, rolled piece of Pink Silky Crush ribbon across the middle
Flowers: large pink flower made from Silky Crush ribbon with a pink wired rose in the centre, Pink tulle rose cut for a length of ribbon roses, 2cm Black wired rose
All papers: GCD's fabulous Paris Nights (8x8), some flowers made with scraps
Cream Stardream card for sentiments pieces,

I hope you'll visit the Daring Cardmakers to see the other fabulous "foreign language" inspired cards the team have made this week - it's a great challenge and it would be fab if you'd join in too, I wonder how many languages we could manage to feature?
So, what did I do for my card back in Nov 2006 - well, as the challenge was just to feature "another language" I was a little bit sneaky and chose "The Language of Flowers" for my card. Here it is:
Well, it's time I wasn't here - I think my cold is starting to improve, but it's really knocked the stuffing out of me, so my kitchen is only going to get "a lick and a promise" - I don't have the energy for much else atm.
Thanks for visiting today, I hope you'll come back soon
