3D Cards Challenge Design Team Card

Good Morning everyone. I hope you are all well. This is my first card as a DT Member for the new 3D Cards Challenge Blog which starts today. We will set a new challenge every second week. This means you have a whole 2 weeks to get your projects made - so no excuses for not joining in, lol. The only rule is that there must be a 3D image on your card...whether that be a stamped image or a decoupage long as it's 3D.

So, the theme for the first challenge is PETS...and we have a lovely prize for this challenge, sponsored by Marianne Design. We would like to see you make a card with some kind of pet on it. This was challenging in itself for me because I don't usually do animals. However, I was quite pleased with the way this one turned out in the end.

I have made an easel card and used a decoupage sheet and backing paper I bought as part of a Jolly Nations kit from QVC quite a long time ago now. The pink cardstock is from my stash, as are the 2 wee card candies on the sentiment. The square behind the image has been through the Bug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and you can just see the Martha Stewart Lace Doily punched strip sticking out behind it. The sentiment is from a mini Studio g Clear stamp set (fab at 99p for about 4 sentiments). The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ones that are a bit bigger have been coloured with promarkers - can't make my mind up about the flowers...should they stay or go...let me know what you think.

Here's the front (please excuse the pic...I could not get the pic straight at all):

Here's the bottom part:

I can also enter my card into the following challenges:

My Time To Craft: Toooo Cute;
Stampavie and More: Pink;
ABC: U is for Unused Stash (my Jolly Nations stuff);

Well folks, that's the first one done and dusted. Looking forward to seeing what you all create. Be sure and check out the rest of the Design Teams fab creations too.
Thanks for taking the time to look and I really hope that you can all find the time to join in and support us.

Suzanne your card is gorgeous, cute image and papers.
My big butterfly punch is from Studio Cards sorry I don't know the brand but I'll have another look, it just so happens I bought 2 ready for my next candy so keep your eyes peeled when the stamps one ends. It's a lot sturdier than the MS punches too.
For the straight photo's hun, download "picasa 3" free and you can straighten them, sharpen pic's and do allsorts of handy editing so you don't need to be a great photographer
hugs Mandy xx
