The challenge over at CD Sunday this week is 'Ornate Blossom' but all the time I was creating this card I had in mind 'Ornate Blooms'......don't know why. So I hope my card will be suitable as it's rose blooms. I used the CD 'Wish upon a Rose' by Jems Designs. A beautiful Cd and one I also used last week but I couldn't resist the images they are exquisite.
I had intended to take piccies of all the blossom on the fruit trees here in our garden but would you believe it my camera went on holiday and also we've had a real downpour today so everything is a wee bit soggy. I'll try taking some later in the week with my mobile, as I'm also having probs transferring piccies from my tablet to PC. Hey ho the joys of technology. It's great when they work but what a pain when they don't!!!
OK back to the card. I chose 'Love Letters' for the main image and mounted it onto a silver mirri card frame which had been cut using a Sissix die. I decoupaged the butterfly and added a sentiment which was also from the CD plus another matching butterfly.
When it came to adding the background the paper on the CD didn't match too well I thought so I went for a pale coral card stock. I felt it looked too plain so I printed off some of the background paper and cut triangles and added it to the corners,. Then I rounded the corners with the Xcut corner punch. Also I added a silver floral flourish peel off to complete......oh yes nearly forgot there's also gold stickles on the butterflies just to bling it up a bit.
This card will be perfect for my Special Daughter when her birthday comes around......ooopps hope she's not looking.
