Well for a while I have been promising myself that I would enter more challenges. I have tonight made a card that I am entering into a couple of challenge blogs.
I know I am still a relatively simple crafter, but I put a lot of time and effort into my cards and would like them to be seen by a larger audience. even if they don't win any prizes!
I have been playing with my Crafters Companion Moreheads CD again and found the most adorable image of a baby girl and a cute dog.
I took a 6x6 card blank and made a simple easel card with it. I found a gorgeous 12x12 k&co paper and matted this on pink and then yellow card stock to make a base for the bottom of the card and the visible side of the top of the card. I matted the Moreheads image with the same card.
I cut a lace ribbon border on my bigshot out of the pink card and added a yellow ribbon and bow as my easel card stopper.
I added the layered imaged onto the top of the easel card and finished the card off with a swirl and some beautiful hand made flowers cut out of the same coloured card as the layers and put them together with a pink and a yellow glittery brad.
I know this isn't as spectacular as some cards, but I am still practising with embellishments, and sometimes 'less is more'.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:
ATC's and Cards with Attitude - Lace or Anything Goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes
I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
