My first C.R.A.F.T DT card!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 12

Who'd have thought 'spam' folders could cause so much chaos?! LOL!
Well there I was, feeling like a right 'bill' 'cos no-one was letting me into the secrets of the DT world, and there they were, wondering where my sample card was.

Then I received a pm through Trimcraft and all became clear! My 'spam' folder had not recognised the e-mail addy and thought it was someone naughty trying to mess up my pc, so it gobbled them all up!

So then, I e-mailed DT land to explain what had happened and guess where my e-mails were ending up guessed it! Another hungry 'spam' folder! LOL! But we got there in the end and at 3:00am this morning, this card emerged from my sleep-deprived brain!

Base card is A4 white cardstock scored & folded in half.
The background paper is from K&Co's new mega-big 'The Best of K&Company' but I don't know the name as it's not printed on it anywhere.
The lemon band is plain lemon cardstock.
The three square icons are from DCWV Pet Stack and I matted them onto red pearlescent paper.
The ribbon is organdie and the heart charms are from MM (I think!).
I did a little 'scribbing' round the edge of the lemon card band with my copics in YG06 & YG11, just to tie it in with the green of the fruity background paper.
The 'Friends' chipboard message is from the K&Co Mega Kit.

I hope you like it and my sleep-ridden eyes didn't let me down! LOL!

Hop on over to C.R.A.F.T and look at the sample cards from the rest of this talented team!
