Setting the Scene

This week's Dare over at Daring Cardmakers' is an extra special one - chosen by the very talented Sharon and sponsored by Docrafts with their brilliant Build a Scene Dies;
"It's Sharon here to set this weeks challenge and this week we have a fabulous prize on offer thanks to Docrafts!
Firstly, the challenge - the theme is:
 Setting the Scene
 We'd like you to make your card your canvas for creating your own miniature world!  The theme is totally your choice and you can use whatever you like to create your scene - die cuts, stamps, embellishments - but please use various elements for the 'scene', don't just use one stamp!
Our challenge this week is sponsored by Xcut – the exciting die-cutting and tool range from Docrafts. The winner of the challenge can choose one of the 4 exciting new sets of Build-A-Scene Dies each worth £19.95. Each set features a collection of dies that work together to let you build up layered designs to create a beautiful or fun scene! Choose from Vintage Hot Air Balloon, Nautical, Garden Party or London."

I was lucky enough to get the Garden Party set to play with and made this; 


I used Crate Paper and Papermania papers, Crate chipboard and stickers, Ribbon Girl flowers and Papermania stickers and gems.

Thanks for visiting, please go and see the fabulous little pieces of art that the DT have made with all the dies from the range on the Daring Cardmakers blog, they are absolutely fantastic!

I love everything about this card Jo, the papers you've chosen are just perfect for these dies, and I particularly love the little union jack piece of bunting! The little extras you've added really finish it off nicely - how cute is that little ladybird at the bottom!?

I love the eclectic mix of little details on this card (especially the ladybird!)

What a fabulous card! I was so fixed on creating a scene with the teapots etc. But the seperate elements on your card look so great!!!
