Greetings - it is nearly two weeks since last I posted - life just seems to have got in the way!!
Today I managed two cards, and I am posting this one as the person it is for does not read my blog so I am 'safe'.
I was inspired by Card Patterns Sketch 110, and this is the result.
The pink paper has a sheen on it, which IRL makes it really pretty. I punched the border with a Martha Stewart punch, which seemed to set the theme of dotted curves.
The brown dp is some from a 'scrap pack' I was given, the gold dots are embossed, making it a delight to work with. I am using it sparingly as there is only one small piece. (Others call it hoarding!!)
The lace across the bottom is some tatting I did years ago and never used.... I threaded some gold ribbon through it for this card.
At one end I threaded a buckle through, and glued a really dimensional button on for a focal point... this came from my button jar which has buttons from both my mother and mother in law.
The butterfly I stamped and embossed with copper embossing powder on pale orange vellum - it is my original butterfly stamp from Kiwi Stamping, and for years has been my 'go to' butterfly stamp.
I painted a few of the features and body with twinkling H2O's and used dimensional adhesives to mount it onto a spellbinders dotted circle cut from gold paper.
I am linking this to the following challenges:
Thanks for calling by, I love seeing that you have visited.
May you day be blessed.
