I still do..



I've finally taken the plunge and tried to meet a dare set out by Daring Card Makers. I usually say I should try it, but either run out of time or plain chicken out. I'm not sure it's quite up to the challenge layed out, but it was my attempt.
The dare for this week is:

A Really Romantic Scrapbook Layout - but on a card!

Scrapbookers are challenged to downsize your usual a 12x12 LO onto a teenyweeny one - maximum of 6x6, which can be sent safely through the mail. Cardmakers - you're used to working on a small space, and you know all about the ribbons, brads and other bits and bobs - but can you take on board all the other little touches that are used on a scrapbook page - the titles, the journalling, the photographs etc?
