My Card Finally.....DD Challenge



Hi Everyone

Here is my card that was meant to be on the blog at Daisy Doodles yesterday. You would not believe the nightmare I had trying to create it. I won't bother going in to all the gory details but needless to say I was glad when I finally finished it this afternoon!!!

The challenge this week is "Anything Goes". Nice & easy for you all :-( As you may be aware you need to use a DD image to enter this challenge but please don't let this put you off. If you visit the blog there is a link in the sidebar to a couple of freebies that you can use.

I decided to get my needle & thread out for this card & used an Erica Fortgen stencil to create the stitching pattern. I got the idea for doing this card in monochrome from the Cute Card Thursday challenge. I found this as quite a challenge. xx Clare ♥
