My Egyptian Pyramid.

Well, I've been stretched outside my comfort zone for the second time this week and I'm so pleased with the results. I made this 'card' for the One Stop Craft Challenge and the theme has been set by Eleanor this week.

Originally the theme was going to be 'Craft Like An Egyptian' but we've widened it to 'Craft like an Egyptian and Other Countries' as not everyone will have Egyptian goodies. This week, the prize we have up for grabs is a Jolly Nation 'Friends' Rubber Stamp. This one is so useful for a variety of cards. The prize has been donated by Shelley from One Stop Card Crafts

I have left my DT card blank for the time being as I haven't decided what occasion to use this card for. Having said that, my eldest daughter loves it and wants to pinch it from me.

This card was inspired by a someting I saw on someones blog (sorry, I can't remember who it was now) but at the time I thought that it would make a fantastic pyramid. Thank you for the inspiration.

My card has been made from:
Hieroglyphic Backing Paper
Kanban Blue Egyptian Goddess Toppers
Kanban Egyptian Cartouche Toppers
Kanban Egyptian Adhesive Ribbons
DCWV Far East 8x8 Stack
Icy Ribbons Pack
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Kodomo Autumn Flower Stamp Set
Dovecraft Metallic Eyelets
