20/20 Vision

We loved seeing all the cards you showed us for Jane's "In the Fold" dare - such a fantastic variety of cards with folds either in them or on them. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Well this week it's my turn (Kathy) and I'm going to dare you to
use 20/20 Vision for your cards.
I'd like you to use 20 of one particular thing on a card - be it blooms, papers, brads, ribbons the choice is yours - you can use other things too, but there must be 20 of one item/component - not 20 things altogether, that would be much too easy.

For instance, can you use 20 different papers on one card?

20 Ribbons?

Or 20 Blooms - well surely that one sounds easy...

Now if you're really up for a challenge and want to try for TWO lots of 20 - well - then we'd all be really impressed! We're really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this one, all the info on how to share your creations with us are at the bottom of this message.

As usual the Fabby Design Team didn't swoon at the very thought of the challenge but rose to it magnificently and we have all these great cards to show you - do
n't forget to check out our personal blogs for all the low-down on what we used and how we used it.

Hi all! I'm new to your dares, just having found my way to your blog a number of days ago. When I saw your latest challenge and the wonderful cards, I couldn't resist giving this a try.

Here is a link to the two cards that I made:

Maisymary's Findings said...

wow wow wow ! love all the cards by the design team ! hard to choose a fave !

Normally I would try to make more than one card when I have a go to add to my cards for use - but I must say it's hard to make another one with 20 items of one type of embellie etc on a card ! lol

totally enjoyed this dare ! in fact I sorta double dared it while at it !

Hi girls, I just wanted to put a little comment here to say I'm having a little trouble visiting a couple of blogs.. :o(
I have to get my Andrew to check out my computer it's freezing on a couple of blogs.. It's so annoying as I really love to visit and see what you've made.. so if I haven't visited this is the reason..

Rachel said...

my 20/20 dare is now on my blog - a hard one this week for me

Angelnorth said...

NickyNoo said...

Got mine done, too, took a while to find inspiration but loved doing it! Check the blog.......

It's also on the Links list under Scrapstars - Joanne :-]

Flower said...

I toyed with not sharing mine as this dare apparently stunted my creativity, compared to all the cool things everyone else came up with but, I've posted it here:

After joining in the last two dares, I have now started a blog myself (another first). You can see my 20/20 Vision at http://rainowgirl.blogspot.com, assuming I have managed to set the Blog up properly. This one challenged me more than the last. Hope you like it.

While looking through the blog for inspiration for my Mum's Mother's Day Card I spotted Kathy's one for this 20/20 dare. Now I didn't stick to the 20/20 bit of the dare, but I thought you'd like to see what Kathy inpired me to make. Keep up the great work Ladies. Hope ye like MY version of the card, even though it's not as good as the original, my mum loved it. :-)
