DCM dare No9.

This weeks dare was a beauty... Make a Christmas card... easy you say.. wait for it....
It had to be black & white with a splash of colour... Well here is my effort... I chose Bronze/Green for my 'Splash of Colour'

Delightful materials used - Black cardstock, ki Memories PP, Heidi Swapp Blossoms, 7 Gypsies Clock face, metal tab & photo turn, Brad, bronze/green blossom, making memories letter stickers, sticko gem sticker, zig Pen, & sandpaper.

The stickers read - 'time for joy & peace for all'... I did use some numbers in place of some letters like a 4 for a A and 3 for a E... it's a great idea when you run out of letters to try sometimes.. Anyway Pop over to Daring Card Makers and have a look what the other girls have made, they are so clever with their ideas.. http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/

Oh wow Gillian, another amazing card, what I love about your work is that it is so original and you managed to turn the impossible into a piece of art. I would never have thought to use flowers or clocks on a christmas card in this way - but it works so well. I love it xxx
