Guest Designer on Daring Card Makers

I couldn't believe it when I was approached to be a Guest Designer for Daring Card Makers. DCM is THE original challenge blog and the ideas are always interesting and challenging. I've been doing the dares off and on for just over two years. You can see my very first dare HERE

This week's dare is 'Folding- up' and I've chosen to make a Joy Fold Card. I made one before using Kathy's tutorial on Bubbly Scrumptious and really enjoyed making it.

This card is to give to my son and his fiancee as they got engaged last week. I used Dream Street 'Simply Stated' papers which were part of a Bubbly Funk Kit and I only have a few bits and pieces left.

I was really pleased to be able to use the couple and put their names on the characters and the little date element to mark the date that DS1 proposed (everybody say ahhhh). The chippie heart was painted by acrylic paint and then sprayed with Red Velvet Glimmer mists.
