Something different

Well I thought I would try something a bit different for me and so I've made 3 cards that wouldn't normally 'be me'.  I'm not really sure how they've turned out but hey ho.  The first one I am going to enter into the Basic Grey Challenge blog which this time is dots and spots and also the Paper Sundaes challenge which this time is circles.

This uses a stamp from the Native American Spirit plate by Creative Expressions.  The papers are from Basic Grey Kraft and Basic Grey White pads matted onto kraft cardstock.  Not sure you can see but there are dots all over the papers.  I also used some East of India dotty ribbon (from Polka Doodles) - which started off as pink but I distressed it.  I also used nestie circles with walnut stain distress ink around the edges.  I then made a little bundle of feathers by tying them with some twisted string - also from Polka Doodles.
To begin with I didn't really like this card but it is growing on me and I am also going to apply to be on the Basic Grey Challenge blog Design team - perhaps this card will be a little different and get me chosen LOL.
Anyway I hope you like this card - Sorry the light isn't very good - I am trying to get hubby to make me a light tent to improve my photographic skils ;o)
