The Alphabet Challenge

Hello there,

I have some news today before I show you my card. Just over a week ago one of my crafty friends who runs the 'Alphabet Challenge Blog' contacted me to say she was stepping down as owner/co-ordinator of the blog and asked if I would like to take it over. Now I have been a member of the design team on this blog for nearly two and a half years and really enjoy the 'Alphabet' aspect of it, so after some consideration, I decided it would be a shame to see such a great challenge blog close down and agreed to take it over.

We have a brand new challenge starting today and we are up to the letter 'E' and Silvi has chosen the theme of


So, here is what I made for my first DT project as the new owner of the blog!

This one is a tri-fold zig zag card and I stamped along the diagonal edges with a flower stamp before cutting along the top edge to create the zig zag effect. I added just a little colour to the centre of the flowers with my Promarkers. A piece of ribbon and a stamped sentiment finish off, together with a couple of smaller stamped flowers to compliment the fancy edges. My actual colour scheme is ivory and burgundy - but the photo makes it look black!

I hope you will come and join us with your own 'Eye-Catching Edges'
Hugz, Jan xx
