City Crafter Challenge






Good Morning, I'm so honored to be a guest at Kirsty's City Crafter Challenge. She has a beautiful Color Inspiration Challenge for you this week. Be sure to stop by and see the teams Fabulous Creations for some inspiration!



Since I love flowers and the inspiration pic is flowers I ran with it. I used some creme Bazill paper for the base of my card. I didn't have any dp to match the colors so I made the striped paper for the top and stamped the flowers on it. The top was cut out with a Spellbinder
label #20, stitched on and some buttons added. My niece loaned my the pretty embossing folder for the top section of the easel. I made a variety of flowers. The small ones have stickled centers for some bling and the large ones have brads. Some of the leaves are Spellbinder foliage and some I cut out and embossed them all with the dotted swiss folder.
The ribbon is dyed to match the blue flowers. The sentiment is cut out with Spellbinders label 20
some blingy jewels added and foam dotted on.


The base is embossed with the dotted swiss folder and stripes added to the sides. A piece of the coral is stitched down each side and the dots added. The flowers and ribbon added and a button stop finish the base of the card.
