News & February Elemental Inspirational Challenge - Daring Cardmakers

Happy Friday!

After a good run of Guest Design Team spots on the Daring Cardmakers Blog, I am very pleased to share that I have been invited by Kathy to be a permanent Design Team.  My fellow DT members have made feel very welcome - thank you!

On to this week's challenge which has been set by Svenja.  The challenge was to use specific elements which you can see at the end of my post.

I really enjoyed making this card.  Milestone birthdays are always extra special and I get to embellish to my heart's content!  I've predominantly used the Docrafts Capsule collection with additions from Craftwork Cards for the frame, sentiment and candi.


Here's a close up:


I used the coordinating ready cut bows that you have to make up with a a brad to secure it.

This is the image from which you have to choose 3 elements.  The elements I chose were the gold hexagons, the gold key and the filigree element from the pocket watch.  It was a male card that immediately came to mind but I challenged myself to put a feminine twist on it!


There is some fabulous inspiration from my fellow team mates on the blog HERE so please do take a look and join in.  I'd love to see your creations!
