Best Wishes

Hello everyone! I am sharing with you my card that follows the current sketch from Cardabilities.

When I saw this sketch I wasn't sure how I was going to create the circle motifs. After playing around with some of my vintage elements I decided that flowers was the way to go. I like to move things around before gluing anything down. I used a variety of crochet flowers and mulberry roses across the centre. It looked fine but then I added some die cuts and then I was happy!

I used foam tape behind each of the banners to add dimension. It also gives you a little wiggle room to move them in case they are not in the right place.

I added some adhesive pearls to the centre of the crochet flowers as they looked a bit bare. The sentiment used some left over papers...nothing goes to waste!


Paper: My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing Bluebell paperpad, Stampin' Up! very vanilla, Kaisercraft coffee bean and eggshell

Stamp: Waltzingmouse Stamps Fancy Phrases

Ink: Memento tuxedo black

Other: Memory Box Quinn flourish and Amira flourish, Spellbinders fancy framed tags one, JustRite vintage labels and banners die, Grant archival pearl stickers, Kaisercraft pearls, Francheville crochet flowers, Hooked on Craft flowers.

I hope that you'll join us at Cardabilities. Remember to link your project back . Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!
