Resta Calmo...

It's Lythan's turn to host the dare this week at Daring Cardmakers, and the theme is in honour of European Languages Day - use a foreign language on your card.

I thought I'd do something different to what I would usually do - which would be a French theme, and I loved this Italian 'Keep Calm & Carry On' digi image which I've printed onto kraft card.

I wanted a striking and relatively unisex look to the card, and no flowers (shock horror!).

I've used sanded Coredinations, Pink Paislee and 7Gypsies papers and hand stitching. The sweetie bow at the top is made from a die cut leather star and circle, mulberry paper, ribbons, funky fibre and an old button!
