Daring Cardmakers ~ Marie Antoinette challenge

The Daring Cardmakers are at it again! These ladies are an incredible group of crafters with the best challenges ever!

They've managed to pull something out of me that I didn't know was there and I love being a part of this incredible team.. thanks again for having me..xx

Here is my card for this weeks challenge..

I have used a great teacup template from Stampington.. I knew straight away I wanted to use it for this challenge.

The back ground paper and main images are from the brilliant Graphics Fairy blog to which I am going to link my card to their brag Monday post on Monday! (I seem to have missed this weeks brag!)

The little chandelier was a freebie stamp from Craft Stamper magazine which I stamped in black Versafine and clear embossed.

I hope you can join in with this Dare.. you might just surprise yourself like I did!

Wishing everyone a great weekend. Happy crafting, Gez ♥

NOT QUITE SURE WHAT BLOGGER IS UP TO.. I CAN'T POST THIS CHALLENGE WITHOUT IT WIPING THE REST OF MY OTHER POSTS.. The challenge is now closed but I still wanted to blog my card so I am tagging it onto here..!
