DCM's Weekly Dare - Through the Window

Posted by PicasaThrough the Round Window
Or the square window, or the arched window, or any shape window you like!This week its Rhi setting the dare, and I dare you to make a card with an aperture in it, it can be any shape you like and can be see through or have something covering behind it. It could be a ready made aperture card or lots of small windows punched out, diecut or handcut or one large window. It could be a shaker card and can be for any occasion.
For some other not so good news, our Janine has decided to withdraw from the DCM design team- as she has so many other new challenges to cope with over the next few months. So, we offer Janine our sincere best wishes for the future and that she achieves all she is dreaming for.
This is my little card for the dare.. It's the first time I've ever made a card with an opening like this, and it won't be the last.....When you open the little window on this card there is a little square sticker that says 'DREAMS nothing is too small to know and nothing too big to attempt'
Dreamy stash bits for this card are - Bazzill Carstock, Wild Asparagus PP, Cosmo Cricket PP, Heidi Swapp Blossom & Acetate word, Little window is one I picked up ages ago-sorry don't know a brand, Autum Leaves stamp (on window), 7 Gypsies key & pp in middle of flower, Making Memories stamp - middle of flower, Versa Magic Ink, Ribbon, Safety pin & jumpring, brads & my machine.... So have you had a go at a dare yet....It's time! go on I DARE YOU!
