DCM challenge and a Funky Hand Design Team Call out!

Wow two posts in one day! what is going on with me?? First up I have my Friday challenge card for this weeks Daring Card Makers challenge. Here is the dare:

this week I'd like you to think small - not small cards, but small spaces of embellishment on regular sized cards.
You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain...but because I'm feeling generous, I'm going to let you add a SIMPLE greeting as extra to your 5x5 allowance! :-)


Here is my take on the dare:





I really enjoyed this dare, I'm afraid I never leave much space on my cards as I am so keen to use my papers all over the card! It was really challenging thinking of making an interesting card with only 5cm square. I printed a paper from my CD Now that's Funky on to card and cut a 5cm square and inked the edges. Then using two pieces of pink ribbon I made a simple bow/flower and attached it to the patterned square with a brad. Then I got a length of 21 gauge beading wire and formed the curl and added it to the patterned square. It's not glued on just formed around it and the square was then put on the card blank with small foam pads to raise it up and to hold the wire in place. The sentiment is a stamp that I bought ages ago when I was in America and I don't think I have ever used it before. I think it will be coming out more often now I have re discovered it amongst all my stash!!

Now, would you like to join the Funky Hand design team? What on earth does she mean you may be asking yourself..well I am looking for a couple of new card makers to join my design team making cards with papers from my craft CDs and downloads. If you get involved you will see your card designs on my website, blog and have them shown on my Ideal World/Create Craft TV shows. If you would like to know more information and get details of how to apply please email me here: support@funkyhand.com I'll email you back with details about how you can apply for the team. I'm really looking forward to hearing from you and getting this team properly off the ground! Oh I should have said..please contact me before Friday 11th April to get details I'll be making the team decision over the next weekend.
Speak again soon...
