Here's my card for guest designer : ) : )

Well, here is the card that I made for DCM as their guest designer :) I tell you I was thrilled to bits when I received the email inviting me to guest design :) and so so hard to keep it a secret, I was literally bursting, but had to keep hush til this morning {lol}
So I thank DCM for inviting me and thank you all for your wonderful and very supportive comments, they mean so much to me : )
So the theme was set by Rhi, and its plastic fantastic, and I used a cut up milk carton to make my embellishment, putting it through my cuttlebug {hard to cut} then put it through again embossing it then put a brad and tiny chipboard embellishment through the centre and added a touch of glitter. The papers are from Bo Bunny, the ribbon {Autumn leaves} and the stamp Autumn leaves and the thank you sentiment is a Hero arts stamp which I have had for ages and love.

Off now for a blog hop
