Daring Cardmakers - the same but different

This week it is Kathy's turn to set the dare....

I'd like to see what happens when our starting point is the same quotation:

"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best". Henry Van Dyke. I'd like you to use this quotations somewhere on your card, it doesn't have to be on the front, or even need to be immediately visible.

Soooo it's a little tricky this week folks - but don't let that put you off :o) I struggled but got there in the end. the only thing I'm not happy with is the ribbon tied around the card - which was really just there while I photographed it. I need some velcro to keep the front opening closed methinks. Other than that I quite like this one :o)

Paper - Basic Grey - Blush
Stamps - Paperartsy
Border punch - Fiskars
Prismacolor pencils to give the pretty lady a little colour
Ribbon from stash and a little doodley doos for good luck :o)

I hadn't realised how it opened before - that is so clever Jozza. And I love the pretty colours too

Hazel said...

Such a classy card - love it! and also the sketch one above.

Great stuff, love the little door for the full quote (a photo turn would do the job if you don't have velcro or a magnetic snap to hand).

Kath said...

what a beautiful card Joz - vintage in a way but also so modern
love how you have stamped the birds inside.

I really like it! And will be giving it a go as soon as the boys stop driving me crackers!

Your card is just beautiful Jozza and I love the way you've made it open to reveal the quotation. Such pretty paper too!
