Paper Pesto

This weeks dare...

This week dare is an extra special one! Paper Pesto are entirely sponsoring this weeks dare AND providing a spot prize for one of our lucky darer's too!

Just before we show the template and let you all get on with making your fab cards, we'd like to welcome Sue Hyde to the Design Team. Sue joined us as a Guest Designer a few weeks ago and was such an asset that we couldn't let her go! Sue's cards are always beautifully designed and full of detail, she can turn her hand to just about any technique and the amount of care and thought she puts into her work is second to none, she's also the sort of person who will take time to answer questions and willingly share her expertise.
Welcome to the Team Sue, it's fab to have you join us "full-time"!
Okay, so here's the tempting template we would like you to follow, and here's some of the design teams cards based on the template using papers and embellishments from the Paper Pesto January kit. Don't forget, there is a gorgeous spot prize up for grabs, the happy winner will be randomly picked and announced once the week is up, so you have till next friday's new dare is announced to show us your card - you got to be in to win as they say!

I made a rather quick card for me using the yummy bits from Paper Pesto, the only addition is some itty bitty letter stickers and some doodling.

I also made these two for the little extra this week - a tutorial by me!

I used Papermania papers, Making Memories Flowers and brad and lots of doodling :)

You can see the other yummy scrummy cards made by the design team and also check out the doodling tut here
