Starting from scratch

This week's DCM dare was set by Tracie:

For this weeks dare, I dare you to "start from scratch" I want to you design a card with NO purchased/pre-assembled embellishments - that means no blooms unless you cut them yourself, no buttons, brads etc etc. I guess how easy this is depends on your usual style**insert evil laugh here**



I'm not normally one for lots of embellishments, but when you're told not to, you tend to want to... So I coloured the paper from scratch. The irises are in full bloom in my garden, and have influenced the colour scheme on this card. Although I now realise a hint of mustard might have provided a little contrast.

Beaututiful Ros, those Adirondack inks come in such fantastic colours. I so know what you mean about wanting to use embellied bits when you're told its not allowed, lol!
