Cute Card Thursday #182 - DT Card


Hi girls. I hope you are all well and having a lot of success with your crafting. I appreciate you visiting me here in my corner of the web and I hope you feel that your visit is worthwhile. The weather here this week has varied from gale force winds and heavy rain to brilliant sunshine. I do hope that wherever you are you have managed to avoid the ravages of the storms.
This is my DT Card for the latest Cute Card Thursday Challenge where the theme this week is everybody's favourite


Anything Goes


The Design Team have put together a fabulous gallery of cards to encourage the creative juices so why not pop over for a peek before joining in the fun. Our sponser this week is Kellie Winnell at Tickled Pink so there are some great goodies up for grabs.


My card owes most of it's components to Sharon Duncan's CD Rom. I got the image from there and decoupaged it and the paper is on the disc as well. I "kite folded" some of the paper to make the rosette. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I used a Xcut border punch on lilac card and silver mirraboard for the band across the middle.
I hope you like (or dislike) this card enough to leave a comment telling me what you think of it. I value all constructive criticisms. Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.
