Another DT!!!

Hi Everyone,
Yep you read the title correctly! I am very very proud/excited/giddy to announce I was successful in the recent DT for Charisma Cardz Challenges!
Thank you to Carlyann and the rest of the DT for having me on board.
So let's jump right in with my first DT project for Charisma Cardz.
Our theme is USE SOMETHING NOT MEANT FOR CRAFTING - very interesting - I can't wait to see what people come up with.
Our sponsors for this challenge are
I decided to go with Dr Digi image and my item NOT MEANT FOR CRAFTING is a pringles tube. Now some of you may know I have made a few pringles tube candle holders - all pretty and flowery and lacey - well to me that just wouldn't cut it with Dr Digi images so...
Ta Daaaa...
The image is Deirdery's Day Off from Dr Digi's House of Stamps HERE
Blue paper is from Mystic Waters paper pack. Orange paper is from Summer Expression paper pack - both from Raspberry Road Designs
Clouds, base, and writing were cut on the cameo. I also used the cameo to fussy cut the digi.
The image is coloured entirely with copics.
I used my craft knive to cut a slit in the top and then using the cameo cut a circle with a slot in to turn the pringles tube into a money box.
I cut stips of acetate to stick the clouds to so they bob about.
Phew if you have made it this far - Thank you! Hope you have enjoyed my first Charisma Cardz project
Pop over to Charisma Cardz Challenge blog now and have a look at what items the rest of the DT have used on their cards. You can check out the rules and add your entry while you are there.
