The Deck on Me challenge

The very talented Emily Falconbridge has been running a challenge on her blog since the beginning of the year, the "Deck of Me" art journal challenge. I started a bit late, at the end of January and caught up but then fell behind again. I've caught up again now except for the one from today. Each week Emily gives us a prompt for us to use as inspiration on our card ( a playing card) and at the end of the year we will have a lovely set of 52 cards we have created during the year.
I am loving this challenge and find myself trying out new methods and thinking outside the square at times. So I thought I would share with you my cards. You can check out the prompts on Emily's blog if you can't work out what they are from my card. They run in the order of each week,the fronts and then the backs of each one.
We're up to week 21 this week, only 22 more for me to do :)))












These 2 are 'surprise' and 'change'. This is also the surprise one , it's supposed to be a parcel that you open and when you look inside there's a photo of Ella with her 'surprised' face, lol.
