DCM little extra - Recipe

For your 'little extra' at Daring Cardmakers
this week, we've got a little recipe for you to use.
You need to use 5 Circles, 3 Squares & 1 Flower
This is how I used the recipe, I look forward to seeing how you do..
If you are wondering about my circles they're there, you just need to look hard..
Some are in the form of those beautiful little diamante's sent to me by Kim.
Expressive bit's I've used on my card are - Bazzill Cardstock, Urban Lilly PP (for the squares and the words), Urban Lily chipboard circle, Diamante, PVA glue to stick them on, and of course my machine.
little tip for you today - when sewing in straight lines if you aren't the straightest stitcher or you accidentally sew crooked, just do a few extra rows over the top of what you have already sewn. This gives your stitching a more random feel.
This card is a good example of this.
So have you Dared to DARE yet?....... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!!!!

Too cool! I love the wide open dark space and the contrasting bits! This must be the 'jzust2cool' technique!

Thanks for the tips too! I'm sponging them up!

Love that card. I am hoping that after sending off my last assignment today I can make cards again....well at least while the two weeks of school holidays are on.

You know, the first time I read about Daring Cardmakers on your blog, I thought it said: Darling Cardmakers! :-D Well, that's a sweet name, don't you think? ;-)
