FIRST KABOODLE CHALLENGE....


This week see's the start of a new challenge site,"The Kaboodle Challenge",and to start everyone off there are some free downloads to use to make your card for the challenge.There are 4 papers and 2 sheets of emblishments for you to pick from.
I decided on the 2 different black ,red and white options,my challenge i set myself was to use only what i had been supplied with and no other image,this to me is how it should be...
I printed out on linen effect card,but really the photo hasn't picked this up very good,i wanted some texture,punched 4 squares,2 of each of the contrasting patterns and joined them together to form a large square,the frame over this was the pieces i had left from my penny black bottle tag,which i layered one on top of the other and then 3d'd at an angle.
I cut parts of the remaining paper to form petals for the flower in the centre,and for the corners on the frame.
I finished off with a Pink Petticoat sentiment cut out with a tag punch,and gems from Hobbycraft.
