Crafty Sentiments # 43

Hi ladies, good morning. I have two cards today....

This is my first one and it's my DT Card for this week's challenge at Crafty Sentiments. The theme this week is REMEMBRANCE DAY, but you can just use the colour red, red flowers or even better, poppies! 

For my card today I used Amy with Basket 1, which I coloured with my promarkers and some gorgeous freebie papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft... I thought they were just perfect for this theme.

I cut up the paper in squares and then after gluing them, I pierced all around with my sewing machine, adding some swirls with my stamps from Inkadinkadoo. It took me quite a bit of courage to cut up the paper, as I've never done something like this before, and didn't know if I would like it or not but I wanted to try this out after I saw one of Melissa's lovely sketches at Tuesday Morning Sketches some time ago, and which I didn't manage to do in time.

I really loved how it turned and happy too that I tried it even though I didn't follow it exactly, but I especially loved the main squares in the sketch!

So now head over to the blog for more amazing inspiration by the lovely DT ladies and to check out what's up for grabs this week! 

I would like to enter my card in these challenges
