Just for You

A big 'thank you' to Hazel for inviting me to join her Design Team at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge,  This is a great challenge where the theme is always 'Anything Goes' as long as you use some patterned paper on your creation.

I have used lovely papers from Craftwork Cards 'Botanica Collection' for my card - it has such a beautiful design and doesn't really need much embellishment.  I'm entering the Seize the Birthday 'Birds, Bees and Butterflies' challenge, and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 8" x 8" white silk
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Dark brown matt
Paper: Craftwork Cards 'Botanica Collection' (magazine freebie)
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto dark brown card and attached it to the card blank.  The sentiment was die cut and layered onto a scalloped, embossed circle.  This was then attached to the card with foam tape.  To finish I highlighted the flowers and swirls with a Wink of Stella.
