Flutter By Wednesday #191
Danni has opened up a new Flutter By Wednesday challenge today. The challenge is to view the photo and be inspired by it! Please visit the FBW blog for the details and to link your creation. You'll also find links to the design team members' cards and projects. Here is the photo for your inspiration.
I was inspired by the pretty pink and green in the photo and also the roses. My friend Harriet gave us some of these gorgeous foil flowers at our Group Gathering last June. They came on a flat sheet - we punched them out and then layered them, using foam squares between the layers. It pretty much makes the card by itself, but I did add a few things:) I started with a light pink card base (Pink Pirouette from Stampin' Up!) I stamped the sentiment on white, embossed with a Swiss Dots folder, and matted with olive. I added the flower and also a butterfly (with pearls for the body) punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I have included a profile picture, so you can get some idea of the layers.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
