Daring Cardmakers and Beate's Sketch Challenge

Well I am back, had company this weekend and celebrating my birthday, so only got to check in sparrodically. Want to thank everyone for wishing me a Happy Birthday, that was so sweet, don't think it had anything to do with my self promotion plug.

OK to the serious stuff. Made this card using Beate's sketch and Daring Cardmaker's Challenge.

For my dare you can choose any theme for the card BUT it must incorporate 'Checks', whether it be gingham paper or ribbon or squares, any thing really as long as it incorporates some kind of shape with 4 equal sides....... so go on- I dare you to think outside the square/step out of the box ..............easy as, eh ?!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Oh this is fab. I LOVE the way you've done the lettering and put all the bits and pieces together. You've reminded me that I must dig out those chipboard photo corners that I've got lurking somewhere!
