DCM Four of the Best Challenge
The challenge at DCM is to use 1 or more of their favourite themes for the year, these were cut, frames, ribbons and buttons.
I have stamped, coloured and cut out the Tilda and the frame is made with the Wizard Nestabilities. I didn't have any matching buttons and ribbons so I cut out my own buttons with the Cricut (George Cartridge) and used raffia instead of ribbon. I embossed the strip of card with the Cuttlebug.
The card is much nicer colours than it looks in the photo but unfortunately it's another horrible gray day here.
