My First DT card


I hope you will all be able to take part in the Sketch and Stash Challenge which starts today. You have two weeks to come up with a creation based on Becky's wonderful sketch, so not too much of a rush for you.

This is my first DT card and to say that I was nervous about making it is definitely an understatement! I think this was about my third attempt at something for the occasion, and although I still wasn't that happy with it, I had to make do as that naughty little Mojo still hasn't made an appearance following the Christmas festivities!

Card Details:
* Image and borders - Card Creations 'Strictly Card Dancers'
* Swirly stamp for cardstock - part of a Dawn Bibby QVC kit
* Backing paper - Hot off the Press
* Embellishments - K & Co
The embellishments haven't scanned very well and IRL they are the same colour green as the borders and the female dancer's dress.

Don't forget you can use any medium you like for this challenge, it can be CDs, downloads, whatever you like. It doesn't have to be stamping, it just has to be fun!
