Papertake Weekly Charity Challenge

The challenge at Papertake weekly reads as follows: "This weeks challenge is a charity one! Quick Cards made easy magazine are trying to break the record for the worlds biggest handmade card, for BBC Children in Need.You're able to use any products/materials you like but the finished card needs to be yellow!! The preferred size for the card is a standard A6 (approx 4x6 in). All cards will be put together to form a giant Pudsey Bear card!" Any children's charity is a deserved one as far as I'm concerned so I would love you to have a go if you have a spare 5 minutes, details of where to send the card/cards to can be found here: Here is my mellow yellow attempt! I have used yellow Bazzill card and a Penny Black stamp called "seeing your face..." I was saving it till my Mums birthday but this is a good enough reason to stamp it early!

The paper is from a VERY old Sizzix pad, the ribbon is by Maya Road and the glitter is of course Doodlebug! Finally I added some of my new square gems?!?!?! Not sure if I like them as they require much more precision than normal ones! I'm thinking maybe I should have done them diamond shapes?!?!?! but then they would be diamond gems not square ones????................How pleased you must be that you aren't the owner of this confuddled brain of mine!
