Wheelbarrow Elegance

Hello everyone,

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:

 

I used the following to create the card:

  • Daisy’s Digi Doodles image “Wheelbarrow”
  • White and pink cardstock
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Pearls
  • Silver photo corners
  • Derwent Colour Soft pencils
  • Odourless mineral spirits
  • Paper flowers
  • Martha Stewart punch “Oak Leaf”
  • Tim Holtz Distress ink “Tattered Rose”
  • Stickles “Diamond”
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Ovals”

The For Fun Challenges Design Team created lovely cards for this challenge, so hop over for fantastic inspiration.  I would love to see your card link this week at For Fun Challenges.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia
