Back To Basics - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

How has your week been?  It's flown by for me and only a few days of school left before the Easter holidays - I can't wait!

Joanne has set the challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers this week and has asked for us to use one geometric shape and one primary colour as a focus.  Can you guess what I've chosen?  Yes, you got it right - blue rectangles!

I ordered a sentiment pack from Craftwork Cards in the sale not so long ago and apart from the largest blue strip, the entire card is made up of sentiments and embellishments from that pack!

I've arranged all the sentiments on a strip of blue cardstock and added twine, flowers, a heart and gems to embellish.  It's simple but I love how pretty it looks.

There is a lot more inspiration on the Daring Cardmakers blog HERE so I hope you'll pop by and join in this fun challenge.

I have a day off on Sunday and family coming over which I'm very much looking forward to it as it means I get to make some special dishes for everyone to enjoy.  I hope you have a good weekend whatever you're up to.

See you next week,

Products Used:
Craftwork Cards Sentiments
Simply Creative Gems
