Guest Designer!!!



I have some really exciting news to share today, I have been asked to be the guest designer for the Daring Cardmakers for the month of April. I really can't believe they have asked me I am so thrilled and still in shock!
I have had a blog for just seven months and have always hoped that one day I could be a guest designer, I am so lucky to have been asked by them as they really are a very talented bunch!!



The first challenge was quite difficult and very stressful as the theme is the birthstone for April which is "Diamond". I wanted to do something a little different and my first thought was that diamonds are clear and glass like so an acetate card would fit the bill. I also found a lovely sparkly button in my mums old button tin and knew it would be perfect. The music paper is a favourite of mine at the moment, I found some vintage sheet music in a charity shop and it works well as backing paper.
I am really looking forward to my month of challenges, thank you Daring Cardmakers for giving me this opportunity.

Supplies: Stamp and Digital Butterfly Hero Arts. White Stayzon.
