DCM Little Extra & More Sneaky Peeks

Its been a while since I've had the time to do one of the Little Extra challenges, but as a) I needed to get a card done for my BILs birthday and b) I made this template and I think its quite a toughie, I thought I'd better have a bash at it myself!

I'm not totally happy with this card, I think there's something missing so I might get the brads out again and see if a magic brad of two makes me like it better. The other problem - and it's a bigger one, is that I picked it up to do a photo and reaslies I'd stuck everything on the wrong way round! Oooops! Methinks a bit of cutting and mounting on a new card will be necessary. Darn it.

Papers are all from Basic Grey's Boxer paper pad. Mr Robo helped with the letters!
I hope you'll have a go with my template and I hope you have better luck at getting your card made without any mishaps....


So a couple more sneak peeks from the "soon-to-be-available-for-pre-order" Bubbly Funk May kit. Which is as I think I may have mentioned once or twice, Scrummylicious.

ooooh I might post some more pics of that last one another day.....

Thanks for looking, please stop by the comments bit and say "hello" :-)

Ooh lots more stacked up flowers in that sneaky peek, lovely.

I can't see what you've put on wrong on the card Kathy - really I looked and looked and it looks fine to me. Like the tag.

Gah, don't you just hate it when you pick up the card and it hinges the wrong way! Can you make a feature of it? lol!

I hesitate to suggest it as it would be 'undoable' but I wonder whether defining the edges of the panels would give it a 'lift'? I'd use a fineline black marker and make a faux mat around each different patterned strip if I was going to give it a go.
