a close up of the flower - I used foam tape to attach the flower to the card and then just lifted the petals a bit to give them more dimension. I also handmade the button to co-ordinate with the card.
It is a very 'feminine' card for me but I liked how it turned out. The background is made by alternating green and pink scalloped edge papers by layering them.
Inspiration for this card came from quite a few places! The sketch is from Inspirational card sketches. The colours and layers were from the photo of a Princess cake over at Lollipop Ladies.
The newspaper print flower is for the challenge over at Simon Says - had to use newspaper. The flower itself is from Crafts & Me - add a flower so I did to my sentiment! The reason for 2 flowers is for the challenge over at Crafty Creations which was to double up (that is a great idea for a challenge!) and the scalloped easel card is for Top Tip Tuesday blog and that was to make a shaped card.
And my Top Tip Tuesday tip: to make your own buttons to co-ordinate with your papers that you are using simply layer a piece of patterned paper on chipboard, run it through a die cutting machine using the smallest cuttlebug circle die, punch 2 small holes in the center, as an option you can thread your favourite cord through and tie a bow at the back, attach to flower center and then apply glossy accents to give it a more of an authentic button look ... to easy!
Oh well thanks for looking and your kind comments.
