LinkGood morning everyone, a lovely bright morning here so far so good lol, I have a quick post for you this morning.

I was asked by Marie of Desmet Designs DT Challenge Blog to be a GDT for the month of April so I was really chuffed and honored that she asked me of course I have said yes. The new challenge has started today

"The theme is month is 'Pins and Needles'

There will not be a prize this month, instead you will be competing for a place in the Top 3. This means that the challenge is open to all. The only rule is to stick to the theme. PLEASE link to your actual blog post not just your home page. We need you to do this so that it is easier for the DT to comment on your entry.

Our design team have been hard at work to bring you great ideas. We also have a guest DT member this month, the delightful and talented Abbie Kay.

The challenge will end on 28th April 2012 to allow time for judging before the next challenge starts."

So this is my card I have done for the challenge, we hope you will pop by and join us for this great challenge xx

I have used Cream card with some gorgeous vintage papers from Desmet Designs, as the theme is Neddles and pins I had the perfect image which has been colored with whisper pens, on the cotton reels I cut bits of cotton in pink and purple and stuck them on the reels I did this a few times to get the layers I needed, then put the needle through the cotton. I folded three corners to show the other side of this gorgeous paper and added two small pink buttons to the top corners.
