It feels like ages since I last made a card with flowers, and actually I love flowers. Daisy’s Digi Doodles is our sponsor this week at For Fun Challenges and the Design Team could each choose a lovely image from Daisy’s Digi Doodles fabulous shop to create a card for this challenge. The prize for this week’s challenge is a $10 gift certificate from Daisy’s Digi Doodles.
This week we want to see some metal on your creations – this can be brads, charms, etc. When I chose this “Wheelbarrow” image I didn’t have a particular style in mind on how to create the card. For the metal requirement of the challenge I dug this silver photo corners out of my stash and, viola, the theme was set! An old Victorian style card with soft pinks and a little dash of blue colour and of course for a nostalgic look, lots of delicate flowers. The pearls were added on second thought – still don’t know if that was the right decision.
I entered my card also for the following challenges:
