French Flower

Hi everyone,


I wanted to share with you a card that I created with inspiration from the current sketch at Try Stampin on Tuesday and the wonderful colours in the photo inspiration at the Shabby Tea Room Challenge.


I have used Certainly Celery for the base cardstock and added a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock which has been stamped in Crumb Cake with the En Francais background stamp.  I added some extra Crumb Cake ink with a dauber on the edges and various parts of the background image.


A border of Pretty in Pink cardstock has been added to the top of the card and has an scalloped edge which I created using the Eyelet Boarder punch and then I added some Chantilly Lace/Ribbon.  The bow is the Pretty in Pink 3/8”  (1 cm) Taffeta Ribbon.


I added a flower which is in Pretty in Pink cardstock and the First Edition Speciality Paper and uses the largest flower in the Blossom Party Die which has been run through the Big Shot.


The Pretty in Pink flower has been crunched, folded and separated and the First Edition flowers have been distressed a little with some Crumb Cake ink.


The leaves are in Certainly Celery cardstock and have been created using the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die in the Big Shot and tucked behind the flower.  The flower centre is one of the Antique Brads.


Here is my card:
