I've been sick! First I got some sort of waterworks infection and as if that wasn't enough, I caught an upper respiratory bug on top. So I'm sorry I haven't been around for visiting. Fortunately I had scheduled my card for last Saturday's Sketch Saturday but I didn't even manage to do my commenting for Sketch Saturday last week. A raft of antibiotics have made me feel better although not 100% and I hope to catch up with my blog buddies out there over the coming days.
I made two of this type of card last year. This is the third. I have used a different embossing folder for each of them, different colours and different sentiments but they are all easy peasy lemon squeezy and quick to make. I used my Nestie blossoms dies to cut the flower layers, inked them, sprayed them with water and scrunched and unscrunched them before building my flower and adding a pearl brad. The layers are cut with a square Nestie and the base card is hand embossed with a square also. This is a wedding card where the bride had chosen coral, silver and white for her colours. The sentiment is by Stampin Up. The photography leaves something to be desired. Sorry!
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
