Well another 2 weeks have flown past and it is time for another challenge over at Craft-Room challenge and this time it was my turn to choose the theme. I use so many die cuts and punches on all my cards that I thought this would be a great challenge, and easy to do, but because I chose the challenge and felt I wanted to do something special I found I had my first case of Cardmaker's block! In all the years of making cards I have never struggled for a theme or style before. So I dug out all my dies and punches(they wouldn't all fit on my table!) and came up with the creation below, I hope you like it :o)
No DP's for this, just 2 xcut die cut circles, one pink(embossed) 1 back (plain) I have inked the base card with pink and black. I have used a die cut butterfly that comes in 2 pieces to create the butterfly and inked the white section with pink and used gems to decorate. (I don't know who created this die, but it is a thin die)
Close up of the butterfly
Die cut and punched flowers, leaves, butterflys and swirls with black gems as the centres and a black velvet covered brad for the centre of the largest one.
The 3 larger flowers are marianne design die cuts and the smaller flowers are xcut punches.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges
