Chrysanthemums for Our Birthday!

Last week's dare was Dare No 52 of Year 5 of Daring Cardmakers challenges - yes, we've been around THAT long! And we still enjoy setting the dares and making our cards. A Huge THANK YOU to all of you who pop in week by week to see what we're up to, and especially to those of you who join in with our challenges - we really do appreciate your support.
The DT members may have changed but our aims remain the same - to inspire and challenge you (and ourselves) to make cards, no matter what your style and no matter what your experience is. We remain open to all, have no allegiance to any company and we actively encourage as much variety as possible - we definitely do not judge one card above another so when we offer prizes winners are always chosen at random.

For our first dare of year 6 it's a return to our year-long celebration of flowers associated with each month. According to our list there is just one flower for November and it's the
Chrysanthemum
Luckily there are lots of different types, so plenty of inspiration to be had - just do a Google Image Search on Chrysanthemum and you'll be spoilt for choice!


Not sure my flower turned out to be completely like a Chrysanthemum...



I used Crate Paper random, Simple Stories Year-o-Graphy, and OA papers,AC fabric paper, Sizzix and Cuttlebug dies, Bazzill bling cardstock with extra glitter added with a Kuretake Wink of Stella clear pen, Papermania adhesive pearl and Seam binding and button twine from The Ribbon Girl.

TFL - and don't forget to check out the other gorgeous Chrysanthemums from the DT.

What an absolutely stunning card! I just love that Chrysanthemum - I'm not a botanist but i've been bought flowers that have had chrysanthemums in which look like those - so there's not a problem that I can see Jo.
Very inspiring work I'll be off to check out that challenge lol Kx
