Design Team Finalists challenge

This challenge is for the 11 finalists chosen in the last post.

We are looking for 3 DT members to join our team so i wish each and every one of you the best of luck and i know before hand that it's not going to be an easy decision as you are all so talented.

As this is the final round i didn't want to make it too easy :-)..........so here goes with the challenge...

There are two parts to this challenge

The first is..........Simplicity

Please make a card which is simple in style, you know the saying 'less is more!' You can use embellishments but please keep it simple so it show off your image which is to be the focal point.

The next step is..........OTT (Over the top)

Please use the same image as the first card you make but this time really 'go to town' on the card, whether it be with big ribbons, bows, embellishments or bright or patterned papers it's really up to you.

The closing date for your blog post to be linked to this post is Monday 26 October 12pm GMT.

So once again good luck to you all and i look forward to seeing you creations.
