This Card is for Magical Crafts Challenge flowers. The paper is a Webster Pages vintage called your life beautiful. Im very disappointed the colors really didn't show true. The paper is a darker aqua checked with dots in the light squares not light blue and very vintage looking. The trim is a dark rusty orange. The checked paper is machine stitched on. The edge is punched with a MS iron gate. I made the flowers with layers of paper I dyed with different colors of inks and dyes and had brightly colored fingers all day! The leaves and stems are made with mulberry paper. The bow is a hand dyed seam binding. The butterfly is a Sherrod Studio digi set with some stickles on it and also stickles on the black flower centers. The scroll and paper edges are shaded with some orange , aqua and brown chalk.

  11. OHHHH, WOWIE Davi!! Those flowers are so GOREGOUS and VIBRANT... Love this so much! Your checkered bg is perfect to make those flowers POP! Your border at the bottom is so pretty too, reminds me of a fancy fence (upside-down) which goes so well with a garden card. PERFECTION! =) Have a lovely weekend!
