DT Challenge Card
This is a card I spent a long time deciding where the elements were going to go rather than my normal decide when I am ready for the next layer. This meant that the ribbon was attached behind the paper and looks better than normal and I could get the brad in the corner. This is very different to my normal Christmas card. I normally would use silver, white, red, green or gold. I've never used pink as the main colour so this was a nice change.
The sketch came from Sketch Saturday and the colour was from Die Cut Dreams both of whom are looking for members of their design team. I've never entered a competition for a design team place but thought that as my cards are getting better I should give it ago as you never know what could happen. I actually made a mistake with the sketch saturday and copied the wrong sketch for the DT. Nevermind I instead entered they normal entry. Unfortuntely as I left it too late I don't have time to make a new card as it would be rushed.
