On Your Special Day

Hello everyone! I have a card to share with you for the latest challenge from The Shabby Tea Room.
The theme is Lovely Layers. This week there is a sketch as well as a photo inspiration. You are asked to
create a card or project inspired by the colors in the photo, use the sketch and include lots of layers!

The inspiration from the DT is just amazing! When I saw the challenge, I was very excited and inspired.

My centre image is a stamped flower. I stamped into some SU! watercolour paper and used my SU! markers to colour it in. I used some distress ink to shade the outside of the image to give it a vintage look. I used two of the Opulent Oval dies from Spellbinder to frame it. I also added a doily and two die cut scrolls at each corner to frame it.

I used papers from Maja Designs. I distressed the edges and layered them with a pink cardstock. I also added some lace and seam binding to create the horizontal border, beneath the stamped flower section. To finish my card, I stamped a sentiment and added some flowers.


Paper: Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basic

Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Old Paper distress ink, SU! markers, memento Tuxedo Black

Stamp: JustRite Botannical Medallions and Banners

Other: Spellbinders Opulent Ovals, Memeory Box Elegant Scrollwork, JustRite Vintage Label and banner dies, Hug Snug lyric rose seam binding, Vivaldi rose, Green Tara roses, doily, lace, Zutter Distrezz It All.

Thanks for stopping by!
