My First DT Card!

Blimey, what a scary experience?! I've made my first ever Am I a Scrap Addict? DT sketch card! I initially started panicking a bit, worrying that my cards will look rubbish next to everyone elses but in the end, managed to get a grip! The sketch was a real tricky one too so I am so pleased that this attempt turned out as well as it did.


I found a flower outline online and traced this on to my folded card blank. I then covered it with yellow Bazzill Bling card stock (can't remember the actual name - sorry!). I cut a large circle from black Bling and then another, smaller circle in the centre of that. This then formed the flap/window on the front of my card. I coloured a Pink Petticoat bee with Prismacolors and Sansodor and mounted this behind the black window, adding Stickles for a little sparkle. I added a sentiment printed from the PC and decorated the finished card with a homemade flower embellishment and lots of adhesive gems.

I think I took the sketch rather more literally than I was supposed to (!) but this was the first idea to jump into my mind when I saw the sketch so I decided just to go for it!
