January 2018 Elemental Inspiration

Happy New Year!

We are delighted to begin the New Year with some news! 
This week we welcome Ruth (Tip Top Toppers) as a regular member of our Design Team.  Ruth is an old friend of The Daring Cardmakers, and a couple of months ago was a Guest Designer here.  We love the things she makes and thankfully she enjoyed her GD time enough to come on board on a permanent teamie! 
If that wasn't exciting enough, we are also introducing a lovely, talented new Guest Designer!
Karen originates from Cornwall, but has lived in France, not far from our own Dawn, for several years now- click the link to visit Karen's blog and find out more. As it's such a short month, we chanced our arm by asking her to stay for February too, and she agreed, so we'll get to see lots of her lovely cards :)

Let's Get Crafting!
Now on to our first challenge got 2018.  It's an Elemental Inspiration challenge, with a gorgeous 'Serendipity' mood board picture chosen by Shabneez and stuffed full of beautiful treasures. You're sure to find plenty of elements to choose from here, it shouldn't be hard to find the minimum of THREE elements you need to use when you make your card.

Suggestions: colours, natural 'found' items (twigs, pine-cones etc). monogram or large letter, paper petals, key,  textures, woodgrain, ribbon, twine, beads, brads

Here's what the team came up with, check our blogs for more info
