I was on my sickbed and this ranked pretty low on my priority list but I thought that I could not let my friend down as she is always doing thoughtful things for me.
Here is another of the cards I came up with on Friday to be entered.
This card is also a nice square 6" x 6" - the base is Blushing Bride and I mounted the Twitterpated DSP on Riding Hood Red. I stictched around the board to tie in the colours and shabby chic theme. I love making the rosettes to mount the Apothecary Art stamped images on as it really picks up the colours in both images (the DSP and the coloured stamped image).
I coloured the stamped image from Apothecary Art using the Stampin' Write Markers in Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Riding Hood Red. I then used the Labels Collection Framelit Dies and Square Lattice Embossing Folders for the framing of the stamped image. The little bits of ribbon are an added touch luxury - Pleated Satin Riding Hood Ribbon and Blushing Bride Grosgrain.
The card is actually an easel card.
I added the crocheted fleurettes in Pink, White and Riding Hood Red because they matched the colours of the papers and inks so perfectly and tied in well with the sewing. Of course I couldn't resist adding pearls and a bit of bling in the form of Frost White Shimmer Paint dilluted with rubbing alcohol to make the whole card extra appealing.
The stitching on the inside of the card ties the whole thing together even further. I hope that the judges liked the finished project - it was quite easy to pull it together so I think it is one of those things that was simply meant to be. . .
