I am a guest designer for the whole of this month on Di Hickman's site and this is the first card which has been published on her blog today.
I was really excited when I saw that mine was the 1st one under the samples she had done. It's a bit of a wow moment for me as I never think what I do is good enough as there are so many much better card makers than me and I am constantly amazed by their creativity.
I made the card for my friend at work and he loved it, although he wasn't terribly happy that I was announcing to the world how old he was.... that made me laugh!
The card was made using my currently most used Dovecraft Masculine paper pack, Making Memories Cosmopolitan, some brads from Docrafts, some peeloffs coloured black on a scrap of gold cardstock and a sentiment from Let's Make Cards. The papers and card were distressed around the edges using a Tim Holtz ink pad in Antique Walnut.
I'd better get working on next week's sketch now :)
