Sunday, 16 March 2014 new adventures...

Good morning my lovely friends! It's time for a new challenge at Hobbycutz and sadly, this is my last DT card for this lovely Challenge Blog. I have been a DT member since their very first challenge, it's been a lovely experience but now I feel it's time for me to move on and make way for some new blood and fresh ideas!
The challenge theme this week is to make a shaped card. I die cut an oval card blank, then made an oval frame which is covered with DP, I used gilding flakes around the edges to make it look aged (a bit like me:( The lovely ornate swirls are of course from the Hobbycutz shop, again they have been covered with gilding flakes. The fabulous atmospheric background and the butterflies are a Delicious Doodles images, you can find them here, here and here. The main image is from Sassy Studios, our lovely sponsors this week. She's called Theodora. I've coloured her with copics and paper- pieced her coat and hat.
I didn't realise, until I'd finished this card, how apt it was for my last challenge... it looks as if she's waving goodbye before setting off a new adventure....
Thanks for looking, and I do hope that you'll find time to pop over to Hobbycutz Challenges to admire my teamie's creations. We'd love to see your shaped cards too!
