Daring Cardmakers Sketch



Well I think I could be getting addicted to the Daring Cardmakers challenges! If you haven't bitten the bug see here (but be warned their blog should carry a health warning - addiction guaranteed!!).
The little extra challenge for Tuesday was to design a card using their sketch template. Sketch templates are a fantastic idea, giving a basis to try something new.
This was quite a simple, but I think really effective.
I had a beautiful clip art image of I think it's a Gazania flower - and guess what! My Robi cut it out for me.
I put the flower on a dark background which hopefully makes it stand out and used some stripy paper to co-ordinate behind and for the sash across the card.
To finish off I added a little sunshine with a sun charm.

I am still not sure about Mummy D's mother's day card - below, so I was thinking I may give this one instead - what do you think??
Thank you to Daring Cardmakers for the inspiration!

Like Lythan I'm going to have to have to get more practise with my robo - you've been showing us some fab stuff you've done with yours and I'm getting greener by the minute!

The flower is wonderful.
Have you tried cutting through glossy card yet....just thinking how good it would be if that worked.
