Another one for PDCC

DSC03506

Hello people! Hope you guys are rockin and kickin! It is hot here, sadly no clouds today.

I have made another card based on the color story at PDCC. (if you missed my first entry, it’s HERE). The sketch is from Papercraft Star and embossing from Simply scrapping crafts.

                                               

Here is my card:

DSC03503

The flowers are handmade; drawn very very roughly, cut, distressed to give a grungy look and rolled. The butterfly is from an original butterfly picture; scanned and printed. At first I was adding something else but I saw the “fanatical about botanical” challenge at Moxie fab so I used a real butterfly instead.

You wont be able to see but I have added lots of pearls on the white lace. Here is another view.

The pearls on the lace are placed at the centre of the circular design and in middle of the flower design.

I have ran a glitter ribbon (shades of purple) behind the purple organza ribbon. The sentiment frame is from my Silhouette stash and the sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

I made swirls from silver glitter balls (from Pie Lane) and added a bit of faux stitching to balance the whole design.

Hope you like it. Dont forget to check out and COMMENT on my second attempt at CASE Study HERE.

P.S: Another post due tomorrow. A CAS card! Woohoo!

Hello. Your card is stunning. Your stitching looks wonderful against the white background. LOVE your flowers! I would love to have more information on how you made them. You said that they were roughly cut, distress and rolled. Was there a basic pattern for cutting them out? I love the "petals". So were these cut at individual petals or as one big long piece that you rolled up to create the flower? At any rate...I love all the lace, the white pearls, the bling flourish...just everything is lovely. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
