Hello hello! Yes I have another card to show today! I have been creating for four consecutive days and this is really surprising as I am a real lazy ass. Anyhoo, the inspiration for today’s card comes from the picture at Papercraft Star.

I would have never used these colours on my own. I don’t think out of the box when it comes to colours. This card turned out great.

The flower is handmade, do you recognize the studded leaves? I had a light bulb moment last time I was working with these little things and this is what I came up with. Looks great right? I added a bit of silver net behind the flower.

The frame, butterfly and little flowers are from my Silhouette stash. The purple lace and orange ribbon is also from my stash.

I did a bit of hand stitching around the card to add that something extra.

The glitter balls in silver, gold and copper are from PIE LANE, I have used them as fillers here. The self adhesive holographic rhinestones in the middle of the butterfly is also from PIE LANE. Here’s a close up.

The background paper is a digi-freebie and has been in my stash for quite some time. Here is another view of the card. You can see the shaded purple lace more clearly in this shot.

Hope you like it! Don’t forget to visit my earlier posts, I have been creating and posting cards regularly since a couple of days.

brenda said...

An absolutely stunning creation, but sadly not eligible for Penny Black at Allsorts - you do need to use a Pebnny Black stamp as the focal point of your work.
