Dare 4..

Fantastic dare...again! It was set this week by T (AKA Bondgirl!) . Use a foreign language. This was such a great dare! The good old internet came up trumps and I was able to find 'hello' in any number of languages from cherokee to chinese hehehe.

On this card I was able use the sizzix telephone die that I have had for ages but never actually used on anything! I used ribbon for the wire. The papers are a bit of gren bazzil and the rest are from a MM small pad. I hand wrote the speech bubble..that was fun ...in english, french, russian, english again, spainsh, arabic and japanese:)

I cut out five squares using a punch everything was inked with distress ink by Ranger. Then I just played aroung with everything and stuck it down when I was pleased!

I really enjoyed making this card. I ripped the two opposing sides of some crate paper that I got free with a scrapbooking mag! Stuck it down on to an A5 card. I scanned the love translation from an english-arabic dictionary and printed it on to some beige card with I then ripped round and inked. I die cut some flowers using a sizzix dies and inked the lot-the papers are the gorgeous BG lillykate set. Finally I printed out the saying-inked it and stuck the lot down, I used foam pads for the greeting to give it a bit of extra dimension!

Love the cards. I have those papers you used in the phone card & it was nice to see you used them in small squares just as I did...great minds think alike.
It is a real good dare but mine won't be ready until Monday...might do a smaller one until then...
