In a word

What with one thing and another I haven't done a DCM dare for a while so I thought I'd try to get in on day 1 this week!

Rhi's set the dare and it's to use a word as the focal point of your design. Here's mine:



The word is embossed on DCWV textured cardstock with the Cuttlebug 'You' folder. I just put in enough card for the single word and trimmed round it. I stamped THANK with Little Classic alpha stamps in a style called Old Book and added a strip of harlequin paper, a star brad and some Colorbox Creamy Brown chalk ink. I let the embossed word run off the right hand side of the card to give it more emphasis.

Thanks for looking!
