Di's Daring Technique For Cardvaarks!!

Phew! That was one mean title, so I guess I should explain LOL. I've been running late all day but had a fabby afternoon locked in my shop crafting. I made this card. Cheryl said I'd soon be making multiplt challenge cards and this one fits the bill LOL. I used Di Hickman's sketch #4 (just shifted the focal image to the right a little bit - I like off-centre); Daring Cardmakers want buttons; Technique Thursday's challenge is 'use red' (oops! that was last week, it's circles now but the paper has circles on it so I guess it still counts!!) and Caardvarks are all about fibres this week, so I make that four!! I'm doing a few Christmas cards at the moment - it's being in the shop that does it as we are getting lots of people making a start. But I guess if you have lots to make or you are making cards to sell, you'd need to make a start now, right? It does remind me of when I used to write for a few craft magazines - August was always spent up to my neck in glittery bits and red papers LOL. Happy Days! Oh! And the papers all came from last November's HOTP PS Cardmakers kit!
