Food Glorious Food

Hi Leo here to bring you this week's new dare! Thank you to everyone who made a colourful card for us last week for Sharon's colour picks.
This week I'd like you to to think:

Food Glorious Food

Create a card that features some form of food related design. It can be as simple as a food image or you could use some kind of food wrapping in your card or make up a punny food related greeting. So long as there's something food related on your card it's all good! When you've finished don't forget to pop back here and share what you've made.

Here's what the design team cooked up to inspire you this week:

September Colour Combo Dare

Hello it's Sharon again.  Thanks to everyone that joined in with my Clean and Simple challenge - we had lots of you joining in and it was lovely to see what you all came up with.

As it's the first Friday of the month it's time for our usual colour palette challenge.   Rather than the usual palette or inspiration photo from Pinterest, I decided to find inspiration a bit closer to home - on my desk!

I want you to use the colours (and patterns if you wish) from my coffee cup.

To give you some ideas, here's what the team came up with:

Clean and Simple

Hi everyone, it's Sharon here with this week's dare.  Firstly, thanks to everyone that joined in last week with our Festivals and Party dare, and thanks again to Docrafts for sponsoring our challenge. We'll be back soon with the name of the prize winner, so if you joined in, keep your fingers crossed!

After all that excitement, I'm going to calm things down a bit with a very simple dare.  I'd like to see your CAS (clean and simple) card designs.   You can create a card for any theme, and using any colours.  I know this will be really hard for some people, and the easiest dare ever for others!

If this isn't your usual style, then hopefully these cards from the DT will give you some ideas.....
