The challenge was to use a word as the main focal point of the card, and I like that idea. I've made many a card with "Mum" or "Dad" on it, or names, so today, I tried to steer clear of that and try something different. I'm also trying to mix patterned papers more - some people just have a knack for that and no matter what they throw together, it looks good. Me, not so much... I'm sticking with coordinating papers right now from stacks or pads, and that's fine, I'm pretty happy with the results. Whether I will ever graduate to mixing and matching papers that weren't designed to go together, I don't know. I have to say though, doing these challenges for the last few weeks has already pushed me beyond what I "normally" do, and I'm trying just that little bit harder to be more creative and try something new. So thank you, Daring Cardmakers, and Beate, too!
