Thinking of You
With the deadline approaching, I decided to enter another card in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #94. I love pretty paper so decided to use cardstock and paper from one of my favorite paper packs - "Brushed" from Close to My Heart.
The card base is the green cardstock from the paper pack. I adhered the yellow cardstock and then the pink bokeh paper. The larger banner is cut from the green cardstock and the smaller from yellow floral paper. I snipped a little fringe on the bottom of the smaller banner and added a curl using a bone folder. All of the flowers and leaves were fussy cut from a piece of floral paper from the same paper pack. I curled the petals and leaves using the bone folder before adhering to the card. The flowers are popped up on a piece of foam tape. I stamped the sentiment across the top directly onto the paper because I did not want to cover the paper with a label. I added the horizontal zig-zag element, which also came from the pack. Adding yellow rhinestones to the top edge and the flower center, I finished the card by adding clear Wink of Stella to the pink flowers, which does not show well in the photo.
