Kraftyhands March Challenge

Today is the launch of a new challenge at the Kraftyhands Challenge Blog. Our theme for March is a sketch, which you will find at the bottom of this post.

For my DT card I used the Miranda and Mo CD. This CD features the fantastic characters of Miranda and her pet mouse Mo. They go everywhere together and are just so cute! The disc includes a wealth of shaped cards, toppers, card sets, inserts, projects and papers. All ready for you to Click, Print and Craft.

I used a 6"x 6" card blank this time which I covered with green Core'dination card and layered on a lovely blue gingham backing paper. I used a green striped paper to create the ribbon "tails" and inked the edges of them for definition.

The topper is from one of the Card Making Sets. There were five layers of decoupage, including the base, different sentiments and an insert. Plus all the other elements you would need to create a card. I matted the image onto more green Core'dination card and rounded the corners to match the topper.

 To finish the card I added the sentiment and three buttons from my stash. I used the matching insert on the inside.

 You will notice that I've rotated the sketch 90 degrees clockwise for my layout. I just thought it suited the image better this way.

There is a £20 voucher to spend on the Kraftyhands website for the lucky winner of this challenge if they have used a Kraftyhands product, and blinkies for the top three entries. A full list of the challenge rules can be found on the Kraftyhands Challenge blog. Please pop over for a visit to see the wonderful cards the other DT members have created for your inspiration.
