July Elemental Challenge - Daring Cardmakers

Happy Friday!

How's your week been?  I've had a productive week with the highlight being Prize Giving and Meet the Teacher at school.  The boys break up next week so not long to go now..........

As it's the first Friday of the month it's time for the elemental challenge over on the Daring Cardmakers.


I had a hard time with this one.  I loved the colours and the elements but couldn't decide what to use.  It took an entire afternoon to put this together.  I must have over thought it! Ha!  

I began by choosing a floral paper from my stash then I made a pleated border.  I fancied a bow and I don't own any so I traced round a template.  To finish I added a sentiment with a splash of pink.

This is the image from which I have chosen 3 elements:


I chose the slatted panel which I made into pleats, the beautiful colours and the flowers that are on my backing paper.  There is a lot of inspiration on the Daring Cardmakers Blog HERE and I hope you'll join in.

See you again on Sunday!
Shabneez 

Products Used:
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards
Everything else from my stash
