So for today, I have another card inspired by one of Jen's Deconstructed Sketches (told you I love this blog and you want to see the cutest Halloween treats she's just posted, oh my word!) Anyway, this time it's number 159...
I used Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes for the embossed background, the lemon polka dot paper from the Lamb design set and the Blue dotty paper from the Bear set which I then overprinted with the Green version to get the pretty aqua colour. I inked the edges with Mustard Seed and Weathered Wood Distress Inks to define the edges and save having to mat and layer..
The flowers are from the multicolour flower embellishment sheet and I've inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, cut into the petals and scored and pinched them for more dimension. I added some Marianne Design Button Flower leaves, buttons to the centre of the flowers and small twine bow. The craft card die cut (SB Labels Eleven) was left over from making my recent Bear Aperture card and was just sat on my desk waiting to be used! I printed the sentiment onto Safmat and adhered on top. Here it is to share - click on the image then right click and Save Image As...to download it to your hard drive...
..I really like the modern feel to this card - so pretty and fresh...hope you like it too and once again, thanks to Jen for sharing her wonderful inspiration!
See you soon,
