Today a new challenge starts on the “Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog“.

DLD CB_BadgeDLD DT Badge Sept 2014Each ”Dragons Lair Designs Challenge” goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters. The winner gets a prize, as well as a badge for their blog, and the winning entry will also be highlighted on the challenge blog the following month. Although we’d love to see Dragons Lair Designs items on your creation, you may ENTER the challenge using ANY MATERIAL you wish as long as you clearly follow the set theme. You may enter the challenge with ONE entry per month. So why not consider joining in with us this month – go to the challenge blog and have a look at the rules and the inspiration created by my fellow Design Team members.

For March the theme is : Bouquet of Flowers”

As the theme is “Bouquet of Flowers”, your creation doesn’t even have to be a card so long you have something with lots of flowers on. Go on – pop over to the blog and have a go.



I decided to create an easel card on a box with a pull out drawer for my challenge inspiration creation this month, and as the collection launched by Dragons Lair Designs in April was “The Pansy Collection” what better flowers to use.

Bouquet 06

Dragons Lair Designs Item:



  • Scissors
  • Hougie Board



I used a background a topper and lots of floral elements from the collection to make this card.  Resizing them before printing and cutting them out.  I used my Hougie Board to score the cardstock from my stash to make the drawer and sleave, glueing this all together before attaching the background, which I’d scored to make an easel card.  I used wet glue to attach the topper to the easel after putting on glaze onto the vase part of it.  I used glue gel to attach two flowers as easel stoppers.

Bouquet 04

And as the theme is “Bouquet of Flowers” what better thing to put inside the box than lots of different flowers from the collection cut out and slightly shaped.  The recipient can use these either as table confettee or to embelish their own crafting projects.

Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)
