Daring Cardmakers ~ Box of tricks challenge

Well, what a start I've had to the day! I think I should give this card to myself!!

Today sees a brand NEW challenge over at the Daring Cardmakers and Fran has come up with a wonderful 'dare' .. these ladies are clever!

Fran wants you to.. feature a box or something box-shaped on your projects - it could be a 3D project, decorated box, box shaped embellishments...once you start thinking outside the box (!) you can come up with some fun ideas!

Simple! If only I could match their thinking.. I've had such a busy week and so made my card last weekend and of course, I've come up with all sorts of ideas since!!!

 Stamps used: Sick Kitty and Small Moon

My card is quite simple today.. my other Gemini twin came out to play! My box in case you were wondering!! was the first item on my card.. the square box shape piece of patterned paper.. I then layered my card with more paper.. I hope I'm making up for my simple box by adding some paper piecing which I loved doing! The sick kitty's duvet and pillow case!

I do love this card! Thank you for calling today and leaving a comment if you get the chance. I hope you can join in the fun over at the Daring Cardmakers do pop over and see what the rest of the talent DT have created.

Have a great weekend. I'm off getting inky with Hels on Sunday.. can't wait, can't wait! Just hope I can feel better by then.. Gez.xx
