DCM Dare No.5


This is my new card for this weeks DCM Dare...
The dare was - Use some ribbon for the men in your life
So I made this card for my dad for his birthday.. Don't look DAD!!!

For this card I used one of my FAV printed paper's it's from 'Wild Asparagus'
and heaps of 7 Gypsies products... The little swing tag with the star is actually a tag that came on a 7 Gypsies Handle. The letters are Pressed Petals.

Anyway I had heaps of fun making this into the very wee hours last night, and I'm really loving doing these dares. So if you haven't had a go, get into the dares, they are so much fun....
TTFN Gillian

Fab card Gillian... love those colours & it would look quite at home on a scrap page as an additional embellishment...
I love brown, spots & ribbon they are a fab coordination...

I realise now why you have called your blog Eclectic Me as this seems to be the style of your cards - they are such a fantastic mix of all sorts of things. This card for your Dad is just unique - I absolutely love your style of cardmaking - I don't think I could ever achieve results like that but I'm picking up some great tips from you :-)
