DCM Challenge

The challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers is "It's All in the Shape". I decided to use a tag shaped card which I think came from Craftwork Cards. Covered the front of the card with a sheet of the paper from Costco and overstamped it with a Tin Can Mail stamp from Inkadinkado. Stamped again onto a darker part of the paper and decoupaged just the flower heads adding some Diamond Stickles and Sakura Black Gel dots just to accent the individual flowers. The hearts, sentiment backer and torn paper are all from the same paper but just a pinkier part. Finished off with Doodlebug All Mixed Up Rub-ons for the sentiment, inked all the edges with Dark Brown Inkand added a pink twill ribbon.
Weather is dull and overcast here today so I am off to mow the lawn before the rain comes and then have a relax on the sofa with a cuppa doing the crosswords in the Sunday papers - my favourite Sunday pastime apart from crafting. And then....I suppose the hungry hordes will need to be fed.

  2. I love this card, it has a touch of vintage and a funky side as well! Fantastic. BTW I love your crafting "buddy" he is so gorgeous, I think he is a much better companion for crafting than my cat Wicki who manages to get into all the supplies and run off with embellishments LOL.
