ABC Challenge - O is for...

Wow - what a talented bunch of crafters you all are! It was fantastic seeing all of the fabulous items you created for our 'Not a card' challenge! As this is a scheduled post (I'm already on my way to work), I'll draw the winner of the handbag charm I made last week, when I get home this afternoon.

This week at the ABC Challenge we're at the letter O, which is for 'Orderly'...we would like your cards to be, for example, if you use a flower somewhere on your card, it should be balanced by another somewhere else on the card.

I've used 'Blossom' (by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie), and coloured Annie in shades of red and pink to match the papers by My Mind's Eye ('Adore') and BasicGrey ('Blush'). The flowers are from Poppicrafts, the pearl brads are by Papermania, and I couldn't resist adding a few pieces of card candy (by Craftwork Cards).

Don't forget to check out the fab creations by the other DT members for more inspiration.
