Guest Design Spot for Cute Daisy May

This week as I said in a previous post, I was asked to be guest designer for Cute Daisy May challenge blog.
As I have never been on any design team I was really nervous but I had a wonderful sketch to work with and I really enjoyed myself.

I was just going to make a normal card but then when I saw the sketch I thought it would be perfect for a concertina card which I was asked to make for an order, as the sketch was not too fussy so it was easy to follow it through on all the pages.This is the front of the card when it is closed. I used Cute Daisy May downloads for all the pages although for the challenges you don't have to use one of their downloads, you can use any image you like but I just love Linnie's doodles as you probably all know by now lol

This is the card opened up. I used blue card for 2 of the sections and pink card for the other 2 which I put through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder and used this as the first layer. The dps are from Magenta and Fancy pants, flowers are all from Cardology, the swirls I got from Linnie (thank you) and the roses i made with vellum. Everything else is from my stash.

To tie the sections together I punched a whole at the top and bottom of each section and used eyelets so the card would be a bit stronger for the ribbon to be tied on to hold it all together. Easy peasy

This is the 2nd page, I have no idea why blogger keeps putting the photo on it's side because in my pictures it is the right way up!! But can't get it to go back the right way so I'm afraid this will have to do for now lol (anyone else having this problem with blogger?)

Sorry the last 3 pics are a bit blurry as well as being on their side. It was pouring of rain outside when I took these ones and I just couldn't get a decent pic no matter how hard I tried!!

Here's the 3rd page which blogger has also decided looks better the wrong way round!

And finally the last page which blogger doesn't seem to like very much either lol.

I hope you have time to join in the fun over at Cute Daisy May this week. Remember you can use any stamps or images and there is a prize of one of Linnie's fab downloads for the winner of the challenge every week.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please do let me know what you think of my first ever card as part of a design team :D (can you see how happy I am that I got the chance to be on the DT this week? lol

Hugs Lora xx
