A Little Bit Crafty DT Card - Challenge #2

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and enjoying the improved weather we're having here in the UK?  Obviously, if you're not in the UK then you won't be enjoying it, but hope you're weather's not too bad, lol.

Today is the start of Challenge #2 over at Paula Holifield's A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and the theme for this month is Kraft It.  The sponsors for this month's challenge are:

Sarah Hurley - TBA
Hobbycutz - £7:50 voucher
Clare Curd Crafts - £10 voucher

There is plenty of fabulous DT inspiration for you to have a look at to give you an idea of what Paula would like to see, so head over there now for a look.

And here's the card I've created for the challenge:

Because I love them so much and I just couldn't resist this digi, I've used the Boozy Brian digi from Lacy Sunshine's Gnomes of Gnarly Wood series.  Isn't he just so adorable?!    I've coloured him using my Promarkers but I don't have a list of the colours for you this time...sorry.  

I've used Kraft card for the base and some of the matting layers, and red and blue core-dinations for the other layers.  It's just simple cutting and because I was making a blokies' card I didn't want it to be too precise so I've been random with my cutting rather than measuring out and I think it works quite nicely.  I've embossed the blue card with a dotty embossing folder and that's it...card done!

So, head off to Paula's blog and click on the blinky saying Current Challenge Here and you'll see all the information and more inspiration.

Good luck.

Take care and happy crafting.
