Here's this weeks Daring Card Makers Challenge.
I used to be able to make cards with lots of "white space" around the designs, but lately when I've tried to do this my cards just look sooooo naked!
So this week I'd like you to think small - not small cards, but small spaces of embellishment on regular sized cards.
You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain.
How you use those valuable cms is up to you. So you may choose to split up those cms to use around your card, or use them in a block or a line. It might help to cut a few 5x5cm squares then cut those up to work out good ways of using your allotment. Making your whole card a miniscule 5x5cms is NOT an option!! Lets have no cheating (I know what you lot are like.....),but because I'm feeling generous, I'm going to let you add a SIMPLE greeting as extra to your 5x5 allowance! :-)

As you can tell from the Title, I did two challenges in one with this card. The First challenge is Daring Cardmakers - Pretty Pastels and the second is Wend's Sketch Challenge. Both have links on the left. I do apologise but my photographic skills need looking at, the colours are so much nicer in real life.

Here's this weeks CPS Sketch, I quite liked this one, a bit different to what we normally do. It was harder than I thought to come up with an idea after seeing the great DT cards. So I decided to keep mine nice and simple and a bit on the less side. Or should that be alot on the less side???
Who can resist a challenge like this? Purple is such an easy colour to work with, with all the different shades you get I could exist quite happily with just this one colour. The deadline is midnight tonight and there's a prize up for grabs, so head on over to Caardvarks, you still have time.
