DCM weekly Dare - Food for Thought

At Daring Cardmakers this week
our Kathy is setting the dare and a Delicious one it is too...
Make a Card with a theme of FOOD!
You could make an invitation to a barbecue, dinner party, picnic, kids party etc
It could feature a recipe, ingredients, utensils, cookery quotations, poems or rhymes....
It could have food depicted on it eg cupcake, CHOCOLATE, bowl of fruit , CHOCOLATE, sausages, CHOCOLATE,.....birthday cake....
Hey, it could even have real food stuck on it.....OK, maybe not....
as long as it's clearly got a foodie theme it's allowed.
Bits used for my Delicious Card are - My Minds Eye PP, Image from my new image CD- Kathy sent me, scrap of paper for crown, brads, the journaling strips are computer generated,
Watercolour pencils - to touch up the colours on the image, and my sewing machine.
Make sure you pop over to the DCM blog if you haven't already...
You'll find some very Delicious Cards from the team
So have you Dared to DARE yet?..... COME ON I DARE YOU

Lovely card.
I am struggling to come up with anything original that I haven't already done that I can sell. A card unsold is wasted products for me.

I couldn't think of one thing food and look at you! Awesome on many levels! I love that you chose the spotted background. It it's so perfectly suited.

Hi Gillian, a beautiful card with such a wonderful quote. I had to smile because last weeks biology practical was on plant diversity and I lost count of the times I explained how seeds are formed in flowering plants.LOL

love Coby
