Midweek Inspiration from Lynne

I have indulged in a little bit of crafting last night inspired by the midweek challenge on Daring Card Makers

Now, as you are probably aware, both Lynne and Gillian sadly stepped down from the Design team recently, and all though the DCM team's door is always open for them, we thought it would be nice to pay a little tribute to them in appreciation for all their wonderful work during their time on the DCM design team. Lythan came up with an idea that we make a card in the 'style' of either Lynne or Gillian's cards. Or maybe pick your favourite of theirs and use an element from their cards on your own card. Everyone has their own style- we thought it might be a little challenge to try out a different style for a change!

I decided to make a card in the style of Lynne as a new Cuttlebug embossing folder landed on my door mat yesterday and they often feature on her gorgeous cards.

I opted to try and re-interpret this card which Lynne did as part of the Santa's little helpers challenges:

and this was my (non seasonal) re-interpretation:

As well as my new Cuttlebug folder I used: Making Memories Paper; chipboard presents made with a Sizzix die and greyboard, 'faux' Happy Birthday stamp created in photoshop. (Sorry the pics are a little dark)

Thanks for the inspiration Lynne!

Both great cards and both very similar to Lynne's style.
