It's time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge, and this month we have a sketch for you to play with.
For my card, I used a freebie stamp and embossing folder set that came with the latest edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I stamped multiple images of the bouquet and die cut one with a tattered lace pin dot die. I then cut out parts of the bouquet in four stages to create a decoupaged bouquet and coloured it with my zig clean colour pens before layering it up with pinflair glue gel.
I embossed the border embossing folder in white card and then fussy cut it out to create a ribbon, to coordinate with that tied round the bouquet. My base card was a sheet of A4 kraft card folded in half, which meant that my ribbon was slightly short, so I snipped it and hid the join behind the circle. I couldn't resist adding some faux stitching with a white gel pen to finish.
I'll be back with another card based on the sketch half way though the challenge.
