July's elemental Inspiration

I'm up at Daring Cardmakers' this week with another Elemental Challenge for you all;  
I chose the picture as it's light and summery - perfect for the fantastic weather we've been having;

This week as with every first week of a new month we would like you to pick out a minimum of three elements from the picture to design your card with.

 These elements could be anything at all but each can only be one thing, for example the colour can only be one - you can't separate them into individual colours. There are loads to choose from and you can see which ones the Design Team chose to use in their brilliant cards on the Daring Cardmakers' blog :)

Here's my card;

I used the background design, gold leaf, pink flowers, paper clip and watercolour.

Ruby Rock-it

A very special dare on the Daring Cardmakers' blog this week;

We are excited today to introduce the first of two sponsored Ruby Rock-It dares!

Here is a little about Ruby Rock-it :
Ruby Rock-it Designs was created by Fynmark in Australia in 2008. Already successful with other mainstream papercraft brands in the local market Creative Director Joanna wanted to create a new brand that focused on all the things she loved – vintage style papers and richly textured embellishments – and so Ruby Rock-it was born. “It’s an acknowledgement to my grandmothers who were a huge influence in my life growing up – their tea-cup patterns, their love of all things olde-worlde.”
There are just oodles of wonderful products for all types of crafters so why not take a peek at their {website} or follow them on their {facebook page}

So here is this week's dare!

Baby Rock-It!!
The products the DT are using are from the Fundamental range from Ruby Rock-it 

The dare is to make a Baby themed card which has a 'rocking' or 'moving' element to it!


We have this wonderful little prize back from RRBF for one lucky person who completes the dare this week (Winner will be drawn randomly just after next week's dare is revealed):

The DT have as usual made amazing cards which you can see on the blog and here's mine;

I used one of the gorgeous little frog brads to make tag that moves to reveal a hidden journalling card;
