Lead By Example

In November of last year I was lucky enough to be asked to join the DT of The Cupboard Trilogy and here is my first entry into their latest challenge - #7 Lead By Example. It's very simple, you just have to look at the design team samples, choose one and make a card/scrapbook page using the same layout, of course you can add to it, turn it around etc, but we still need to be able to see the original in the layout (if you get my drift?). There's a lovely prize for one lucky winner, so well worth having a go.

The card I've made is an 8x8 covered in a light blue rose background, the bottom half of which I stamped with an Indigo Blu harlequin stamp using a pale blue distress ink, as well as a grey versafine. The topper is made using a Kanban stamp (stamped twice onto two different sized ovals) coloured with promarkers and then mounted on top of one another. A white ribbon coloured with the same colour promarker blue pen and ruffled slightly. The greeting is stamped using the Art Deco stamps from Docrafts and a spellbinders die. Nothing too difficult, but leaves you plenty of scope to elaborate on.

I hope you like my card and leave me a comment and why not have a go at the challenge too. http://thecupboardtrilogychallenges.blogspot.co.uk. Thanks for stopping by and good luck xxx
