Two cards for two challenges

Hi everyone hope your having a good weekend.
The weather here is horrid,damp and cold and i dont like it one bit but it does have a good side,who wants to go out in it much nicer to stay in and craft :) so thats what i've done today
and here is the result i have made 2 cards.

This one is for
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge 7
which is going dotty
so i have used some dottie paper at the top and dotted some faux brads on the card too.
Papers are Kay&Company,image is from the Dottie and George rock n roll collection,round sentiment created on pc and name stamped with see d's alphabet stamps.

My other card is for
One Stop Craft Challenge 54
which is to make a card for kids
so i have done Spiderman image
decoupaged it and done a book a trix card with it.
I have no idea where i got this decoupage sheet from
as i've had it a couple of years and only just got round to using it at last.
I have done a close up of the decoupage below.

Thanks for looking and hope you like it:)
