A Guest Spot!

Rosie asked if I'd like to do a Guest Designer spot on the Rosie-Dee challenge blog during the month of July.
As this lovely blog sets challenges that you can then use for any craft you fancy it'll be a fun way to do some of the things I don't make so often - maybe give myself an extra challenge to try tags/twinchies/ATCs etc - no promises, mind!

Actually the first challenge for the month of July is a sketch - so what do yout think I've made? Yep, you got it - I made a card!

Here's the sketch for this week's challenge

This is the card I made, I decided to use the diamonf shape as an aperture and put the focus item pn the inside of the car, peeking through the aperture. To get the double-frame effect of the sketch, I cut the aperture in the card, and them again in the paper which I then peeled back and
distressed a little.

All the papers are from MME's Pretty Please collection, some ribbon from Ribbon Oasis and some tiny gems from one of the Anita's Gem Wheels

The new Rosie-Dee Design Team have their very first outing this week, so if you've not visited the blog before, now's a really good time to check it out!
