DT Project for: If the Shoe Fits 26 Feb & DDCC #72
This week I managed to combine my design team projects for If The Shoe Fits {ITSF} and the Dutch Dare Card Challenge {DDCC} with one card. ITSF furnished the DT with a colour challenge (see pic below) and also provided the cute frog digi stamps from Digi Kitty.

One probably need to grab sunglasses to protect one's eyes from brightness disease before looking at this creation. But I do think the colours gel well with each other. And, did you notice that I have managed some angles on this design ... a great rarity in my creativity as I like things 'straight' forward. What do they say, nothing ventured nothing gained.
The challenge over at DDCC was to create a card with an 'open the gate' design. This is actually my first attemp at an open gate design and I quite enjoyed it.

Thanks to all of you who wished hubby good luck with his international coaching certification as he got international certification last Friday night at the UCT Post Graduate School of Business in Cape Town, and all the hard work of the past year paid off.
Wishing you all a fabulous last weekend of February 2010!
