Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all having a good week!

Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages.

The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.

I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross. I am slightly addicted to finding new ways to use twine on cards at the moment, and love how this looks with the colours of the card.

I hope you've enjoyed this blog, and do let me know what you think, or if you've joined in with any blog challenges recently.

I will be back soon with another blog, in the meantime, check out what all the other crafters have made joining in with this weeks Daring Cardmakers Challenge.
