Daring Cardmakers

Sometimes I like to try and meet a challenge that has been set on a cardmaking or scrapbooking blog.  Today I met the challenge set on  I followed the recipe given and here is the card that I made.

A bit of Chipboard and More Turquoise …

I used a chipboard circle to make a border for the sentiment on a birthday card today, and I couldn’t help reaching for Tempting Turquoise again!

I coloured the chipboard by pressing an ink pad onto it and it looks really good – much better than leaving it bare.

Don’t forget – all chipboard is 25% off this month!
