Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - DT Card


This weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has been set by the lovely Donna and here chosen theme is "A Sketch with Chocolate Orange". I thought this was going to be difficult as I dont think I've used this colour combo before but have to say I loved it and am really pleased with the way my card turned out. The stamp is one made by my local craft store. I've used this on a few cards before as I think she is so sweet.


I actually got my Promarkers out for a change. I'd somehow persuaded myself that Copics blended better but I dont think I had the knack of blending back then and it worked a treat with these pens so may start combining the two on my projects. The dies are all nestabilities and the sentiment is Craftwork cards. Brown flowers are Prima, the centres are from Wild Orchid Crafts. They do the most beautiful flowers which are ideal for your cardmaking and they offer a fab service. Leaves cut with L-Em punch from The Glitterpot. Lattice punch is a Martha Stewart available from The Hobby House. Please do check out the other DT's cards, they are a great source of inspiration, and we would love it if you could join us with this weeks challenge.
Happy Easter to You all and try not to get any chocolate smudges over your cards
