Two Challenges - One Card!

Good Morning from a wild and windy Scotland!! It is freezing here today with gale force winds.

Got my kit today from the ladies of Kadoodle Stamps/Craft Barn so looking forward to creating my cards for them, will upload them as I go!!!

Hope you all have a lovely Saturday - I am not venturing far I can tell ya, will be blown off my teeny tiny feet!!! LOL (Well I am only 5 feet tall !! Grrr !! Wish I was taller though!!)
So my card for today is for Stamp Something and we don't have to Stamp!! It's a stamp free zone this week!! AND it is also for new challenge blog Charisma Cardz and this is their first challenge with a theme of PINK, so me being a challengeaholic I just had to give it a go!!
So here is my card using the Cuttlebug Diamond embossing folder, coloured with chalks, I then cut two circle frames with my Nesties, embossed them and linked them. Added ribbon and my cake chipboard sticker, two dew dropz and a chipboard corner sticker to finish.
It would have been a quick card but had problems with the layering of the circles and the sticky foam pads to get them laying flat. I faffed about for ages!!!! Grrrr!!

Carlz also has great blog candy as she is approaching 10 000 visiors. Pop over to her own blog HERE for the details.

Hello Dawn, the last time I visited you was a huge 28 blogs ago, I just love to visit you 'cos you are so inspirational. Now I have made a cup of tea and have a biscuit and will enjoy going through everything that you have done in my absence.

Don't laugh, it was 3 degrees here when I got up this morning, the coldest I can ever remember. Yup, I know, that's hot by your standards. Hahaha

Fabulous card Dawn. I love the linked circles (I may have to pinch that idea from you sometime! - if you don't mind). Beautiful chalking on the embossed panel too. Thanks for joining in the first Charisma Cardz Challenge.
