Back in Time #1

We've already seen some fantastic cards for this week's Big Dare - which is to make a card using, or inspired by all that media they keep bombarding us with. Check the Design Team's fab cards below and of course all those from our wonderful DCM Darers linked via the list on the right.
Hopefully there are more cards to come - we all get really excited when we check back and find new links to investigate!

....Oooh and don't forget there are DCM goodies up for grabs for some lucky All Things Media Darer - you've got to enter your link before the New dare goes live on Friday to be in the draw.

Now, for our extra little dare this week we thought it would be fun to step back in time and make a card inspired by a particular decade - so we'd like you to think "the 70s" - remember all that brown and orange wallpaper? Flower Power? Hippy Chicks through to the beginnings of Punk Rock? It was all there - and if you haven't a clue what we're on about - well the internet is a wonderful thing for finding out!
Leave us a message and we'll be there in the blink of an eye to see what you've come up with for this one.
To start you off, Gill has gone Flower Power and acid colours in a big way,
Jo has gone all 70's with brown and orange flowers and poor Keryn is still recovering from the horrors of remembering her old school uniform!

I know I am a little late with this one but I couldn't let it pass without having a play - after all I was a teenager in the seventies!
