Three in One!

Three challenges in one!

2. Cupcake Craft Challenges (use flowers)

3. Whatchadoin Wednesday (use glitter)

Now I am sure that I can not live without these flowers! I don't know I just had to add these particular ones! :-p

Everytime I stop myself but I end putting the same design! Half my blog is filled with these! LOL

And yeah...the swirls too! :-p

Alright, so the details of this card are as follows..
I recently bought Faber Castell colour pencils. They are pretty dark and I got the 48 set :-D

Anyway, I coloured the entire border/edge of the card with two shades of blue and sea-green to match with the multiple colours used in the flowers.
I just love the colour of the flowers. The pink looks great, pops up the flower and enhances it's look!

This is how it looks when opened. I tried to make it look like the sketch I used, but open it differently. So when closed, it looks like the sketch.I tampered with the edges to give it a rough look and faux stitched it. I used a purple marker to enhance the tampered border of the turquoise center paper. Nothing else to tell! :-p

Oh yeah one more thing! I don't know where I got this idea! I wanted to use two ribbons on this space. In my previous card I had already used "on- top of the other" method so I wanted to do something different. End result does not suck! LOL
