Challenge #56 - Kit card

Please check the post below for the winner of challenge #55

Our challenge this week is set by America :~ Kit Card!

America kindly sent our DT members a kit to use to produce a card. We were only allowed to use what was in the kit aswell as our own tools. As it is impossible to send you all a kit we would like you to take a look at what America sent us and try to reproduce the kit (don't worry if it's not exactly the same or even if you only have a few items that you could use). This may seem like a tough one but it's one to really get you thinking!!

Here's what the kit contained.........

Colour theme - Brown and Cream
1 x spotty/patterned paper
Brown Ribbon
Silver thread
Stamped image
Swirl die-cut (or something similar)
embossed card (brown or cream or both)
Pearls (or diamontes)

Remember that you can use as much or as little listed above. Good luck and i can't
wait to see what you come up with.

There is a fantastic prize up for grabs again this week from........

House Mouse site

So if you would like to add to your collection of favourite stamps, now's your chance with a fabulous $25 voucher to spend at House Mouse. Please see the sidebar for rules of play!

Here's a bit about House Mouse.......

Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!



Heathers kit didn't arrive before she left for a holiday so Heathers is a good example of reproducing the kit.

I love how different all of these cards are given that you used the same supplies ... it just shows how truly creative you all are. Great job House-Mouse DT team! And great idea for a challenge America. Keep on stampin' on!

Drat, I had my card done yesterday, just didn't get it photo'd and posted until today. I didn't have a flourish so I didn't fully meet the challenge, but still want to share my card.
