DCM - Chrysanthemums for our Birthday!

Last week's dare was Dare No 52 of Year 5 of Daring Cardmakers challenges - yes, we've been around THAT long! And we still enjoy setting the dares and making our cards. A Huge THANK YOU to all of you who pop in week by week to see what we're up to, and especially to those of you who join in with our challenges - we really do appreciate your support.

The DT members may have changed but our aims remain the same - to inspire and challenge you (and ourselves) to make cards, no matter what your style and no matter what your experience is. We remain open to all, have no allegiance to any company and we actively encourage as much variety as possible - we definitely do not judge one card above another so when we offer prizes winners are always chosen at random.

For our first dare of year 6 it's a return to our year-long celebration of flowers associated with each month. According to our list there is just one flower for November and it's the
Chrysanthemum.

We hope you'll join in and celebrate our DCM "New Year" with us by making your own Chrysanthemum inspired card and sharing it with us. We're looking forward to seeing what you make - they should make a wonderful Birthday Bouquet!

Here's my card...

I am still perfecting these felt chrysanthemums but love the simplicity of them. A rather pink card to match the flower!
