Dragon on a bit...

Hello lovely people,

Spot the mistake...I'm here with my DT card for our new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday...
Yep, it's now Wednesday - oooooops!

I'll explain why I am so late in a moment but first let me share the Bingo board we are using, so you just have to pick a line and use those 3 elements on your project.


We are sponsored by Kenny K and they are offering a prize of 3 digital images of the winner's choice.



Here's my card using the bottom line (twine/dies/stitching);


There are 2 reasons why I am late with my card and both are basically down to me being an idiot;

1.  I thought that this image would be a fun colouring challenge....the phrase 'biting off more than you can chew' springs to mind!

2.  Despite being responsible for selecting the Bingo board squares, when it came to making my image into a card I just couldn't make a design I liked using 3 in a row off the board!

Well, I got there eventually and the good thing, after all that faffing around, is that I am incredibly proud of my colouring and I LOVE the card, so there was a happy ending!
