ADVERSITY doesn't build CHARACTER, it reveals it
Another Dutch Dare DT project for this month which is to use a mosaic on your card. I just love mosaicing (as all of you probably know by now) and got my 7/8" EK Success square punchie out and punched away at some pieces of scrap patterned cardstock in my stash. I inked the edges of each square with brown chalk ink and created a square mosaic backdrop for my sentiment. Sketch Saturday's sketch for this week got me going with the layout. Papertake Weekly's challenge for this week is to use three different shapes on a card and therefore I think this creation also qualifies for this challenge i.e. there are circles, squares and corners on this creation.
I probably could have some exciting news later this afternoon, so perhaps make a note to pop in later this evening or tomorrow morning, when all should be revealed ... got you curious now hey!
Thanks again for popping in here and enjoy the rest of your Wednesday, small Saturday as I call it.
