I made a card for my brother and his wife's anniversary here in March this year which was a very different style for me but I liked it alot. So I made another similar one for a friend's birthday,
I used pearlescent cream cardstock for the base with pearlescent cream paper for everything else. The flower, which was cut with my blossom nestie, dampened and scrunched, is inked with Brilliance pearlescent ink as is the central mount, and the background to the flower has been run through a Cuttlebug folder and then lightly inked with Distress Inks. An SU sentiment and a sparkly brad add the finishing touch. I like that this make is made from only pearlescent cream card and paper and yet it doesn't look like it.
I am entering it into four challenges:
Stamp Something are celebrating their 3 year blogaversary with an "open" challenge and a hop;
Creative Card Crew want to see "May flowers";
One Stop Craft Challenge have a "birthdays" theme; and
Papertake Weekly want us to "Fancy a punch (or a die)" - my flower is cut with a die.
I made this card in double quick time unlike the makes in my last post which took forever. Sometimes it's really nice to make a quickie!
And hopefully I will now have some time to visit my blog buddies. Please forgive my recent absence!
