Sorry for not being around for a couple of weeks. We went up to Northumberland for a holiday and there was no broadband , mobile service or anything. Shock, horror! Still, I am back now with a card for 5 challenges to make up for it.
CES Challenge #37 - Embellish It. - 3 different types of embellishments required
Crafty Catz #83 - Anything Goes
Totally papercrafts #67 -- Don't be Square - any shape of card but square
Crafty Creations #119 - Mayflowers - flowers, patterned paper and ribbon
Sentimental Sundays #55 - Handmade flowers (and a sentiment)
The base card was card from and A5 pearl cream card using a Grand Nestie. The backing paper (Joanna Sheen) was cut from the next size down and the sentiment card from the smallest of the series, again from the Pearl card.
The gorgeous sentiment, (Elusive Images - or Chocolate Baroque as they are now known), stamped in red chalk ink says - "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and not giving it".
The flowers were printed from a MCS CD rom, layered up with Pinflair glue and the flowers highlighted with crystal glitter.
The ribbon was wrapped around the bottom of the sentiment which was then mounted onto the backing paper and base card. The bow and flowers were added with more Pinflair glue and the swirl of individual crystal gems finished the card with a bit of bling.
