Daring Cardmakers - Pintrest Inspired

Time for another Daring Cardmakers challenge! This week the design team were set the challenge by Nat to make a card inspired by the image of our own choosing from the Pintrest site. Well this one was pretty simple for me as I love Pintrest but when I came to pick my image I was totally overwhelmed for choice! I went all around pintrest typing in the search box things I loved then ended up on some pretty blogs I found via some of the images then pinned a few bits then went back onto pintrest and eventually.... I ended up with this image:


It's got a lovely fresh and clean feel while still being fun and colourful plus it's got a little bit of vintage in there so all together perfect to me!
So here's the card I've made inspired by the image above......
I used scraps of patterned paper and cut out the circle shapes using a Nestabilities pinked circles die then stitched them into garlands with my sewing machine. The greeting bit I've hand-stitched on to card with some Pink Paislee twine. I was umming and arring whether or not to put anything else on there but I decided to hold back and just keep it simple.
Pop along to The Daring Cardmakers blog and have a go at this weeks very 'pin tresting' dare!

Mmm, this is completely gorgeous Leo - I love how true it is to the pin yet still so unique and original as a card. I admir the patience for that hand-stiching too!
Simply wonderful!
