DCM - Dr Seuss

There is one thing I love about the dares over at the Daring Cardmakers and that is they are always so much fun and a challenge. Well, Friday is at long last here and it's Jo's week to dare us at Daring Cardmakers and she has chosen the theme of Dr. Seuss.

'Jo said: I loved reading Dr. Seuss books when I was little and my children love them now so this week, I would like to see Dr. Seuss inspired cards - whether they feature Green Eggs and Ham, The inhabitants of Whoville, The Cat in the Hat or are inspired by the colours, font or rhyming phrases, it will be brilliant to see what you make!'

Here is my card:

I really struggled with this dare and still don't think I've got it quite right but it was lots of fun to put together.

I sourced the image from the internet and then thought it would be fun to include one of Dr Seuss' sayings for the sentiment. I also wanted to stick to some of the more traditional colours for the Cat in the Hat, and kept to red, blue, white and black.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DCM DT's gorgeous and fun cards!
