Now onto this months challenge. We want you to really have fun with this one and create something for children or young people. The prize is again a £10 voucher for the Crafty Purple frog shop. 

This month we are joined by the brilliant Jarka Ef as GDT and this is her great creation....
Using Fab foil bright gold, Fab foil Purple, Fab foil Teal, Bonding powder, Make a wish clear stamp,Cutesy Anya stamp and antique linen distress ink pad.

Here is some more inspiration from the DT.....

I have done two cards this week both using the super cute unicorn from the greeting farm magical day set
I couloured them with spectrum noir pens then put them on foam pads so they stand out from the rest of the card. The cards are C6 size and the dotty papers and buttons are from the pinks goody bag, the neutrals goody bag and the teal goody bag. The green paper is from the bright spark set and the sentiment is from the sweet dixie it's all in the words set. They are all put together with collall glue.

For my card I have used the Dovecraft Back to Basics Goody Bag in Teal.  I have used the card blank, 2 backing papers, gem and buttons.  I have used a Elizabeth Bell stamp that I got free with a magazine last year.  I have coloured the image in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens.  On a piece of decorative card I have used glue and Wow! Sparkles Santorini Preimum Glitter for a little bit of sparkle.  
using Back to Basics Bright Spark design papers. I also had my first play with one of the Fab Foils, I had fun with the silver glitter. I thought I would pop a doily behind to add an extra feature along with the flourish die cut, well part of it anyhoos! I put it all together using Collall all purpose glue on a 5" square white card blank adding a sentiment from the Its All In The Words set by Sweet Dixie
I have created a 6 x 6" card for a young boy using papers from the Just For Men 6" x 6" Paper Pad - Brights Collection.  I used them to cover the card base and also cut a star from another of the papers.  The sentiment is from the Just For Men A6 Stamp Set - Rock Star stamped onto one of the papers.  I attached the star and sentiment using foam pads.  To complete my card I added a number four and some punched stars covered with Glossy Accents.

I used a 6x6 Card Blank with Little Angel Paper. I inked Spun Sugar Distress Ink on a piece of card, Stamped and Embossed the Dovecraft Stars Sentiment & some stars with Brand New Wow Taffeta Pink Embossing Glitter using Embossing Ink Pad & Heat Tool. Then used Embossing Pen round the edge and heat embossed that the same. I love the finished sparkle! 
On my second card I used Dovecraft Bright Spark PaperDistress Inks (stormy sky & tumbled glass) to make the sea background on the image, New Seahorse Glitter on the Die cuts and finished with Glossy accents on the bubbles and Foam pads under the middle of the sentiment.

for my card this month I used one of the card kits by Dovecraft in Teal one of my fav colour.
The card base I created a pocket out of the card blanks in the kit, the little buttons are so cute and also from the kit. I used my fav glue from collall to add the pattern papers this glue is fab as it wont make the papers warp. The 3 little teal bling gems I add to the left corner of the card are from the teal kit.
The pull out tab I added the teal pattern paper an a little sentiment, then a little flower from the kit with a button. I also used some of the flowers on the front of the card.
To finish I add a sentiment label there are loads to choose from in the kit.
the kits come in other colours to.
