DCM weekly dare - all checked out!



This week over at the Daring Cardmakers Blog
Its our turn Jane's turn to dare us all
Okay -are you ready ? For my dare you can choose any theme for the card BUT it must incorporate 'Checks', whether it be gingham paper or ribbon or squares, any thing really as long as it incorporates some kind of shape with 4 equal sides....... so go on- I dare you to think outside the square/step out of the box ..............easy as, eh ?!!
Totally Cool Dare Jane, love it!!!!
so here is my card...Actually it's an ATC
so it measures a wee... 21/5 x 31/2" when shut.
So Bits I used are - Tim Holtz Printed Paper, Stamp-it 'creativity' stamp, Lost Aussie 'art doll stamp', Cats life press 'grunge date' stamp, Stamp-it 'limited edition' stamp, I used Acme label maker for the 'inspirational' word (there's a link in my side bar for that), some ribbon and two tiny little solid brass rings I got from a fishing store, and ofcourse my sewing machine!
Oh and the check on this little number is actually pieced by me :O)
So Have you Dared to DARE yet?.... come on I dare you!!!
