My First Challenge Card!

Here is my first challenge card. I was starting to feel stuck in a rut with my designs so gave Loretta's challenge over on the do-crafts website a whirl! This is quite an unusual style of card for me and was inspired by the wooden effect tags/tiles. I got them from Wickes DIY store. They are samples of kitchen worktop surfaces (on the side not shown), but the back of them have a wonderful wooden effect. I just added eyelets with my cropodile! Quite effective I thought. I'm always on the look out for how I can use household items for my cards, not only to save money but to help in recycyling, and it's always a bit of a challenge!

Early post today as I'm going out with the girls tonight to go and see the new Sex and The City movie. Im soooo looking forward to it, love the SATC girls!

Hope you all have a lovely day,
