My first ever DCM card

I have had a go in the past at the Daring Card Makers challenges but have never had the courage to upload. Today I decided that this was about to change, so here is my very first DCM card.

The challenge was as follows:

"Hi it's Keryn here and it's my turn to set the dare this week. This time I asked my family for ideas for this weeks dare and the best amongst a lot of ideas including power tools etc, etc was Lachlan's ideas for Space. It's been his topic at school this term. (Lachlan is seven and in Year 3). To make in a little easier on you all I've called it Celestial to also include horoscopes as well as planets, spaceships, stars, suns etc. How you use these items is up to you."



I used a beautiful white pearlescent A5 card base. I cut a star from some black Bazzil card which I outlined in silver pen and added some doodling from a stencil I have. Then just embellished this with a silver star brad. I cut out a border from the black Bazzil, again outlined in silver pen. I wrote the nursery rhyme Twinkle Twinkle on this in silver, finishing it on the card in black Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Doodled some stencilling in the black Sakura pen and some star 'characteristics' around the star itself.
