Couple more layouts for some challenges

These layouts are used for different challenges at Sisterhood of Scrap; ABC DT Challenge Blog and Flying Unicorn. Thanks for looking.

Card for a couple of challenges

This card works for both challenges, a card challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap
and for ABC DT Challenge Blog. You pull that tab up and you can get to the candy without tearing the card apart. I didn't have the candy holder that you can purchased from SU so I used a container that flowers came it. It worked out great.

How many fish

For a couple challenges, one at Sisterhood of Scrap to use a circle on a layout and the other one was for Flying Unicorn to use paint on the background. I painted the circle, which is vellum, painted over the bottom sheet of paper and used paint on the stamps to stamp the fish on shrinky dink paper and then added the fish to the circle. TFL
