Daring Cardmakers Challenge


Had some fun this weekend working on challenges, this one is for Daring Cardmakers



In The Frame
This week I’d like you to use a FRAME or FRAMES on your card. You can use any type of frame you so wish. How about a die cut frame or a hand cut frame. You can frame your card with brackets or flowers or how about some doodling - the choice is yours.



For this Dare I used my TAC Flamingo stamp and created a Christmas Card. Decided the red bikini and green towel would add to the Christmas flavor and being from South Florida thought a bikini Flamingo would work fine. This card is going to my Flamingo hating friend in Colorado, told the Flamingo story in an earlier post. I lightly chalked over the embossed snowflakes and used snowflake paper. I was at Michael's today and they had a pack of Heidi Grace paper on clearance for $3.00, it is not bad enough that I have enough paper to last to the next century I had to buy more. Well that is it, decided I am on a use it up kick, will be using what I have. Hope everyone had a fun weekend.


Below is a photo of the inside of the card
