DCM - Starting from Scratch challenge


This week it was Tracie's (Bondgirl) turn to set the dare ....For this weeks dare, I dare you to "start from scratch" I want to you design a card with NO purchased/pre-assembled embellishments - that means no blooms unless you cut them yourself, no buttons, brads etc etc. I guess how easy this is depends on your usual style
**insert evil laugh here**
-------------------------------------

I was attempting the "comfort food " version of a card ! hmmm ! tried a quilted type of look using scraps of old CB paper! not my fave ones either - made up entirely of 2" sqaures , pasted & folded a lot ! lol - not sure if the fibres are allowed ! lol

I think it's way easier to stick to cutting out lovely flowers frm beautiful pp ( such as those from K&Co ! ) & using them as embellies ! hmm double hmmm !

maybe it's good for a man !

you tell me ! lol
