Hi Susan here....
We are half way through our challenge over at Fussy and Fancy, the on-going challenge is
'Be Thankful - Feature a Sentiment'.
I love this type of challenge, my favourite kind of card is one that features a beautiful sentiment on the front.
For the full details of the challenge, our sponsor, and to get some further inspiration from the rest of the design team call across to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.
Now onto my card....
My favourite two colours are brown and pink and this card incorporates both of those colours.
My backing papers are from my stash, I cannot remember where they had come from originally just that I liked them together. I have distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink.
My cute little butterflies have been made using a punch, then colouring them with inks and adding stickles and pearls.
The ribbon and pearls as usual are from our local market.
The doily is made using an embossing die then adding ink to the raised areas.
The frame and sentiment has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs. I printed this out on kraft card then inked the edges with distressing ink.
This is a close up of my flowers, I have used some feathers and real leaves that I pressed from my garden. The large flower in the centre I made using a die some inks and pearls, the rest of the flowers are from Hobby Craft.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
