Daring Cardmakers-Pockets

Posted by manicstamper on July 20, 2007

Daring Cardmakers have a fabulous ‘dare’ this week. Lynne has set the challenge and she would like us to use pockets on our cards for this one.
I had all sorts of ideas for doing a vintage style card but one look at the miserable weather outside and I decided I would do something a bit more cheerful and went with the ‘pocket full of posies’.
As usual the colour is better in real life…the yellow, lime and orange are much more zingy than they look here but it is far too dark to take a photo so I have had to scan.

I really enjoyed doing this dare so huge thanks to Lynne for setting it.

I’m off to see what everybody else has done now.

Bye for now
