She is daring you & me to use a Word as the main focal point to your card. It can be a name, a greeting or just a word that inspires you. You can use other text but only one word as a main embellishment. So dig out your dictionaries, die cutters, alphabet stamps, rubons or download a funky font and show us what you can do! The design team have come up with some fabulous creations to inpsire you.
Loved this dare Rhi!

So many times we are guilty of breaking promises,
or have been on the other end of a broken promise,
but what a wonderful blessing to know
that when God makes a promise it's steadfast.
Oh that was deep...are you still with me..
That circle bit in the middle is a piece from an old belt, you know the macrame type with discs in between the thread, anyway I pulled it apart and sealed some words on, then I embossed it with embossing powder, and sealed it some more, the rest is pretty easy to see what I've done, I do like the look of the beading wire wrapped around like that, I think that might be my new thing, anyway... please note! no sewing machine... an no it didn't hurt! lol!

I used this beautiful Stampsmith photo stamp, with Versamark Watermark pad, and then applying grey chalk over the top, to give a really soft finish... I love the way the image came out, so soft and 'floaty'. I added a couple of computer generated words, then sandwiched the stamped image inbetween 2 pieces of acetate, and then the frame I cut from basic grey printed paper. Stitched it and added the lace, flowers, 7 Gypsies handle, some twisted pearl cotton, maria george crystals, and well there you have it...
