Branwen Briar

This week Darnell's NBUS challenge has the optional theme of 'Use Bubble Wrap' and I chose to use my NBUS 'Branwen Briar' die.  My first challenge was then to find some bubble wrap and my second was to photograph the card without having an image of me in the metallic circle! I'm also entering A Gem of a Challenge 'Add a Butterfly', Die Cut Divas 'Use Red or Pink' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities ' Classic Scalloped Circles Large' Tonic Studios 'Branwen Briar', Tattered Lace 'Mini Sentiment'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid 
Card: Cerise metallic
Other: Bubble wrap

I inked the bubble wrap with the Orchid ink pad and stamped it onto white card.  I trimmed the square, layered it onto cerise metallic card and attached it to the card blank.  I die cut and embossed a cerise scalloped circle and attached it to the centre.  The Branwen Briar, mini butterfly and sentiment were die cut from white card and attached to the scalloped circle.

This is very pretty Kath and I love the soft pink you have used with the bubble wrap in the background and the stronger coloured pink mirri card which you have used for the mat and under layer, and the lovely die cut butterfly flourish and sentiment stand out beautifully in the white. x
