Crafty Cardmakers DT Card - Own DPs

Morning everyone

I am a bit late posting up this weeks Challenge card for Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge - We have moved the challenge to its own blog so that we can Challenge ourselves and you on different techniques, products and style. These Challenges are designed to be a little bit more challenging than the main Crafty Cardmakers blog.

So The Challenge this Fortnite was to make your own DPs ( I am a bit dim, so I had to ask what this was before committing lol - Its Design Papers )  - So I used so plain white card and spritzed with Cosmic Shimmers over a mask. Once dried I then cut up into little squares and arrange them on to a piece of card and attached to the main card.  We were given the choice of an image at The Stamping Boutique and I choose Thread, there are some lovely images there, so hop on over and have a look.  I also coloured this in with cosmic shimmers and cut a little strip for thread through the needle.  I used PEEL OFFS ( come on get off the floor, its not often I do) for the sentiment and did some faux stiching around the edges

Hope your all having a fab St Patricks day - Im in my craft room all day today

This is 'sew' (get it?) clever. Hope you didn't get 'pins n' needles' or lose the 'thread' when you made this...sorry, this is a crappy pun-induced comment!!!
