DCBD #115



Another week has went by. It is once again time for the Diva's Coffee Break Design Challenge. This week we were given a sketch by Heidi, our head Diva. For me this was an easy challenge. I see now where I could have added more to my card, but last night when I was working on it I didn't think of it. Isn't that how it is sometimes? I was tired when I was making it because I had just finished up designing the cards for my birthday card class. I just wanted to get this one done fast. Not only is this card for this challenge, but I also made this for my husband's birthday. Are you wondering how old he is going to be? Well, I think I will just leave you guessing.
Be sure to check out the other Diva's blogs for there perspective on the sketch. If you decide to try this, which you should, please let me know so I can send others to view your card too.

I think you were getting a little "punchy" when designing this! I love the DSP spiral punched, nice!`

Chris, the gray and blue together are a great combination! Very masculine, and so sharp! Nice job with this challenge!
