DCM - How Random

The Dare for this week;
Firstly make a list of 10-20 crafty items you have in your stash, whether it be brads, ribbons, peel-off's, craft robo, dies, stamps, glittter, buttons, flowers, patterned papers, paint... You get the idea! Give them all a number or print them out a sheet and pop them in a hat all folded up.
Next, ask someone non-crafty to either pick 3-5 of your numbers or pieces of paper from your from your hat.
Finally, make a card using ONLY the items chosen. A card blank, some sort of sticky stuff and your basic craft tools are allowed If you want to make it really challenging, list plenty of items that you haven't used in a while, or thought you may never use again!

My 3-5 items were chosen by a friend seeing as though I'm single
  • 2 sheets of textured patterned paper, Far Eastern paper pack from DCWV
  • 1 bloom
  • 1 Metal tag
  • A Versa Mark blue ink pad.
The card.

The colours & texture aren't really clear with the poor light

What a brilliant Challenge!!! :D

I think that at this moment you are over at my blog, so I decided to come to yours!!! LOL

You know what I did to see Shimelle's video ... I opened the page, and LEFT the room, by the time I came back, it had played it all ... in its jerky way ... and I just repressed the play button, and there it was, a continuous stream!!! :D

BTW, Love the music this week!!! :D

Well done!
I love the colours.
You were much more specific than I was - I kept the items that could be picked very general so it was easier!!
So extra well done!!
