Back to Peel-offs

I'm so pleased to announce the very first challenge for Dawn's Crafty Cards and Friends. It's a challenge based website for the friendly Facebook group Dawn's Card Swap where we have monthly swaps. Please ask to join the group on our Facebook page if you would like to become a member.
The theme for this challenge is "Anything Goes" and it runs until midday on 14th August. The sponsor for this challenge is That Craft Place  and there is a lovely crafty goody bag of stash for the winner.
There is also a Treasure Hunt to join in with where you will have to collect a series of letters to be in with a chance of winning a crafty prize. All the rules for the Treasure Hunt are on our challenge website  DCC and Friends Challenges.

This is my DT card for the challenge. Instead of trying something new, I decided to go back to my roots. Like most crafters, I started with peel-offs. I have boxes full of them and rarely use them now that I have discovered stamping and CDs, except for the odd sentiment. I thought I'd add some lovely up-to-date embellishments and give them a new lease of life.

I used this fabulous Anita's medallion outline sticker. I placed the layers onto acetate and cut round each one then layered them up with Pinflair. There are 3 layers in this medallion. I then mounted that onto pink card and matted with silver mirri.

For the base I covered a 6"x6" card with silver mirri and added a mat of the pink card. I took a length of white lace and, with a running stitch, gathered it into a circle. I then glued the lace behind my medallion topper and mounted them onto my card with foam tape.

I added a couple of buttons with pink thread and I curled a few lengths of ribbons to give the card a contemporary look. To finish off I added a couple of peel-off corners and a sentiment.
Don't forget to join in the challenge yourselves, remember it's "Anything Goes". Good luck to you all.
