Allsorts DT call

Yea, one of my favorite challenge blogs is having a DT call! Allsorts is looking for 2 new DT, so I'm on it!
To apply, you have to create a card just for the application. I had to think about this, as I wanted to make a great card that would showcase my (mostly!) clean and graphic style.
I started with some fun, colourful papers as this card is to cheer up a co-worker who just lost a friend. Then I made my own background by embossing the flower shape and brayering the ink over it. (I just got the brayer, must find Youtube videos as I'm not really sure what to do with it yet!) A cute image and some ruffled ribbon to finish off, turned out great!

Got my fingers crossed!

Emma, this is gorgeous! I love love love those colors, and can't get enough of birds right now. The embossed background and brayering is also very clever. I still don't have a brayer...they kinda intimidate me. Lol!

Oh this is so beautiful. I love your style, I never seem to be able to do a card like yours, I'm just too fond of my embellishments, I guess ;o)

Good luck for the call! I am trying as well and I'm so nervous about it LOL.
