I managed to combine the challenge into another of those three Christening cards I have orders for, so I'm feeling rather chuffed.
This one is actually the third of the Christening cards, I'll share the other one next time I blog (just in case I don't get anything else made for a couple of days, you know how it is!). There'll be a box to go with this card too when I manage to get it finished. The Christmeining is next week so I really need to get a wriggle on.
Anyways, it was Jane's turn to set the dare this week and she said:
Its very simple really (prickly maybe but..:) I want you to design a card to any theme- but I want you to include pins or needles of some sort. Sewing needles, safety pins, dressmakers pins- any type of pin goes! :)
Don't forget to leave us a comment with a link to your card, so we can come by and admire all your pointedly, prickly creations!!
This wasn't what I'd planned to do so maybe I'll even get round to that too....or maybe not!
The card has a vellum wrap and the vellum (from PDA Card & Craft) has tiny specks of silver and gold foil all over it - absolutely beautiful.
The little safety pin is threaded with tiny blue beads and the small silver cross hangs from the loop.

Thanks for looking
