Daring Cardmakers - March Elemental Inspiration

Hello Everyone.
Its my last day on  work experience at my local stationery and craft supplies shop as part of my French language course.  I am shattered.  I think I will be glad to back in the class room learning French. 
I even scared a few people away during my first week as I was full of cold and lost my voice.
We have a lovely elemental inspiration challenge this week at Daring Cardmakers.
Our host Miri has picked this gorgeous mood board.  I hope it helps with all your Spring creations and remember to use at least 3 elements.
For my card I picked the sunflowers, colours and geometric shapes inspired by the lampshade.
I started with a square of white card and I embossed this using a chicken wire design embossing folder.  Then I die cut lots of hexagons from some pretty patterned paper and added this to the bottom of my card.

I then used this gorgeous Shapeabilities Create A Sunflower Die from Spellbinders.  Each "create a flower die" from Spellbinders all come with easy to follow instructions.  You just die cut and start gluing.
I then added a few pearls and this little black and gold sentiment sticker.

I think I will be using this little die a lot more as it makes a lovely statement piece for your creations.

Have a great day and please stop by the Daring Cardmakers blog to check out more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.


  1. That’s a lovely sunflower die and it would make a pretty daisy as well. Lovely card Dawn! Hope your cold has cleared up and you’re full of enthusiasm once your back but the classroom.

  2. This is stunning Dawn. I love the way your embossing echoes your paper hexagons and the sunflower is beautiful. Cathy x

  3. This is beautiful, Dawn! Love that sunflower (my favourite), it must have taken ages to cut out and put together... And I also love the hexagons.

  4. Your card looks great! Especially the 3D sunflower is so beautiful.
    It's great to hear that you faced the challenge of speaking French in a real life setting. My friend moved to France for half a year to brush up her French ... you are brave ladies!!!

  5. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…
