Today I finally had the chance to play along with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challange! Of course I HAD to play because the inspiration for this week's challenge came from my BFF Edna!!!! WOOHOOO!!!!!! :) The card that inspired this week's challenge can be found HERE!
This was actually quite a quick card to make, starting with a base of white and layering with Pink Pirouette and more white. I punched one end of the white with Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Punch and embossed the rest with the Victoria EF. Across the bottom I added two pieces of this cool ric rak that I found at Bee Crafty in Maryborough - I have no idea what it is called, but it also comes in blue. I then took the Lattice Pendant Die Set (Spellbinders) and cut out some pieces using the smaller square die and attached them en point across the top. I thought it looked a bit bland, so I added some Martha Stewart Royal Butterflies (cut with white and sponged with Pretty in Pink) embellished with Kaisercraft Rose Pearls. The flower has been made using the Poinsettia dies by Spellbinders, cut out in Pink Pirouette. To add a bit of definition I sponged the centres with Pretty in Pink ink and then popped each flower up on foam tape. I then added some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the centre of the flower. The sentiment is from Warmest Regards and has been stamped in Pretty in Pink ink and then I cut the panel into a tag shape.
