DCM - Caardvarks - Di Hickman

I've been such a bad blogger of late and TBH I can't see it changing 'til after Christmas (ho hum) Anyway desperate times call for desperate measures so today we've got a 3 in 1.


The DCM Challenge was to have the inside of the card playing a part on the outside, I think i've kind of achieved that, the flower is on the inside and when the card is closed it appears to be on the outside.
The design of the card is inspired by the latest sketch by Di Hickman and yes, I kept it the right way around!

Finally, the Caardvarks challenge was to use Ric Rac and for that i've used some of my scrummy velvet stash.

The paper is one of the free papers from the January issue of Crafts Beautiful and I've amazed myself by doing the writing by hand, which is for me a bit of a dying art.

Sorry about the naff photo's lighting is so crap in Britain at this time of year isn't it!
