DCM - Here Comes the Sun

You can always rely on the DCM team to come up with a challenge to get the creativity flowing.  This week's challenge is

Here comes the sun!


Lets see some cards full of reds and oranges and yellows - or with lots of circles on them - or rays - anything that says sunshine to you!

This challenge was just what I needed to cheer me up.  I've had this card in mind for a while but not had time to get it down on paper.  I started with the scrap of fabric, it's from a batch of samples sent to me from Seamstar.  I really want to get into sewing again, I've had my new sewing machine about 6 months now, still nothing!  I've got a lovely book called  'Sew' by Cath Kidston on my birthday list, that's sure to get me going!  We live in hope!  Tfl :)xx

Paper: kraft parcel wrapping; Doodlebug crushed velvet
Image and sentiment: Pink Petticoat

  4. It's so tactile! I have a friend that would love this card, as she's touchy-feely with books and paper and such. :)
