Caardvarks, card number 7, all good things must come to an end.




I can't believe we have come to the last card of the Caardvarks 7 day card challenge. It was certainly a challenge that was lots of fun and also got me motivated to try some new techniques and new styles. I have also had the chance to discover many new artist's work and look forward to seeing what they create next. Overall I am happy with the cards but there are a few things I would have done differently if given the chance. On this card I pretty much followed the sketch as is. The second circle is included as part of the tree.
To get all my cards done on time I have had to put aside some of my favourite weekly challenges but now that its over I can get back to taking part again. Looking forward to seeing who gets into the Caardvarks DT, there is certainly some tough competition out there :)
The other challenges I have included-
La-La Land Crafts Blog,Paper Piecing-http://lalalandcrafts.blogspot.com/
Paper Play Challenges, Spot This-this is my third entry for this great challenge, I guess its because I love polka dotshttp://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/
