Live on the Edge... the crafty pad

Today I am sharing with you a card that I made for my DT submission at the Crafty Pad - live on the edge... I am beginning to love edges to cards where previously I have stuck to a style of clean and simple - I am trying to step out of my comfort zone! So why not join us this week I cannot wait to see your creations!
The card that I have used is using one of my favourite designs Sewing Machine and elements - I think that silhouettes are great to work with and I am loving the fact that so many of them are included - I am not a sewer but am looking to invest in one in the next few months even if it only to use on cards!
I used a white card blank and used a piece of DSP from craftwork cards which I am sure you will agree suits the card very well... I have used a border punch down the edge of the card and also down the DSP. I tied ribbon detail to the left hand side of the DSP and then added 3 card candi to the right of this. I cut out the sentiment and mounted this on basic black card and then stuck this to the bottom of the silhouette. I have kept the card relatively simple and the colours very muted - but I think that they work great together.

    2. Leesa was probably looking at my comment as she was typing her own Debbi, that's the sort of thing I do and I blame my age! I'm glad you have forgiven her.
