Daring Cardmakers - Secret Hideaway

 Its Friday and challenge time over at Daring Cardmakers.

Our host this week is Joanne who would like you to create a card with a hidden element! 

You might choose to use a camouflage/eclipse sentiment with die cut words or letters, add a pocket to your card and tuck something inside, use a flap to conceal a surprise image or sentiment... what can you come up with to create a secret hideaway?

I had a play with some Brusho Crystal Colours and created a camouflage sentiment.

This was very hard to photograph so I apologise if the photos seem dark as I had to turn the flash off so you could see the sentiment.

I started by sprinkling the brushos on to the paper and then spritzed with some water.  Once this was dry I used the wish sentiment die from the Broadway Birthday Bundle available from Stampin' Up to cut into the brusho background.

I then cut a few more layers of the word wish and glued these together but placing the coloured one on top.

I then glued the layered sentiment back into the space I created when I first made the die cut.

I then heat embossed the word "make a" and the little diamonds in gold to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and please pop by the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.
