This is my second post of the day. For this post I am sending my card to Freshly Made Sketches and (PIN)spirational Challenge. These two challenges made for the perfect storm of creation!
Freshly Made Sketches #187 (FMS187)
(PIN)spirational Challenge #140
Here is my card! I really hope you like it.. Here we go!!
|I took the photo inspiration quite literally.|
Elements of course changed for the card but the
overall feel is the same as the photo
|Banner is weaved in the design for interest |
and so I could fit the sentiment.
|Pictures never do Perfect Pearls justice.|
The light blue shimmers and gleams in the light.
|Photo showing the double embossed leaves, |
the texture of the flowers, and
again, that beautiful blue butterfly!
The green backdrop was dry embossed twice. Once inking the folder with white frost ink and then flipping the folder and embossing with no ink.. I like how it turned out. Like the green in the photo this green provides depth for the card.
The flowers were actually die cut from a larger flower I thought would fit but was too big for the design. So I ended cutting it up into little flowers. I like it better because it shows the glitter embossing and coloring of the original flower..
The layout of course came from Freshly Made Sketches which pulled the entire card together.. Great layout and I thank you for the design!!
That is all for me right now.. I am now on my way to a neighborhood cookout with my family.. Fun times!! Thank you so much for stopping by and please don't forget to leave a comment good, great, or otherwise!
See you soon from TheGrandStampede!!
All the Best,
