The two delicate white handmade blossoms are a gift from my sweet, generous, and hugely talented friend Samra of Paper Talk with Samra! Aren't they lovely? Thank you, Samra--I really love playing with my stash of Samra blooms! Please be sure to pay Samra a visit at her lovely blog soon for a real treat! She works magic with Shabby Chic and is a real inspiration to me! The two larger roses (well, they are supposed to be roses!) are made using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and given just a hint of color with Distress ink in Tumbled Glass. The whimsical flower spray is Memory Box Chloe Stem with some added bling. The leaves are cut from Tattered Lace Ornate Leaves and colored with Perfect Pearls Spray Mist in Sour Apple. This adds just a hint of shimmer in real life.
I added a stamped sentiment from Stampin' Up, inked in Watering Can Archival, and blended with Tumbled Glass. It is framed with Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, which I edged with Tumbled Glass and added some bling. My crinkly bow is made from my vintage seam binding colored with Silks Glaze in Jasmine.
I would like to enter my card into the following inspiring challenges:
Scrapy Land Challenge # 36 Tie One On (include a bow-die cut or ribbon) I used the following brands of dies: Cherry Lynn, Tattered Lace, Sizzix, Memory Box, and Spellbinders.
Happy Little Stampers February Mixed Media Challenge Paint I used paint on my butterflies and bow. One stamp-sentiment.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Shake It Up! I shook up my Dylusions sprays to get my blue sky and snappy butterflies and Perfect Pearls to get some shimmer!
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Inspired By a Song I was humming 'What a Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong the entire time I was making this card recalling these verses: (I didn't see where we had to include the words on our project.)
"I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day and the dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world"
Thank you for stopping in today, and for all your lovely comments! I read and truly appreciate each and every one of them!
Hugs and Blessings!
