One card - Two challenges

Posted by Picasa

Hi all,

This is my card for the latest Caardvarks challenge & the latest Card Patterns challenge. I was a little out of my comfort zone with this card. I don't normally use Hot Pink that much. This card is made using scraps. I cut the pink bazzil dot so that it measured 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" finished. I then layered on the black cardstock that I had spritzed with a mini mister of yellow ink & gold perfect pearls (you don't see the yellow but the gold looks really pretty). I then layered white dot bazzil, the smaller pink dot bazzil with a white label nestie #1. Inking Worn Lipstick distressing ink on the white. Then I stamped the flower onto the bazzil & then again onto white c/s & green c/s. The butterfly I stamped & then clear sparkle embossed, cut out & glued down. I used black kaisercraft bling to make the body & embelish the flower. I also cut out after stamping the message, which I then heat embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. I added a pop dot behind the message.

Paula, this is a lovely card - perhaps you should do 'hot pink' more often! Jo x
