One of the challenges below was to create a card with only a sentiment/quote and no stamped images. So I used lots of die cuts, punches and texture to create an interesting card. Another challenge was the color palette and the rest just evolved.
I'm using a Quietfire Design sentiment from the "Français" Set. Bonne Fête or Happy Birthday...
The flowers all start with circles and are punched with a corner punch. You can see my tutorial for them HERE. I also used circle under the rosettes. That butterfly flower has 7 layers. I really like the way this card turned out.
I think I forgot to mention on my website that I put a strip of Sookwang tape on either side of the sentiment and added cool highlights glitter.
Anyway you can click on card image to see details and descriptions etc. Enjoy.
