Daisies

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing a card for the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. The theme is “Hiding and Go Seek” which means there must be a hidden element on your project. Your project can be a card or any other paper crafting item, such as a scrapbook layout, box, tag, etc. but must be made in a vintage or shabby chic style. Hope you can join us this fortnight. Kerstin and Nina are our two guest designers for this challenge and you can also see their beautiful cards on the Sugar Creek Hollow blog.

For my card I used a Graphic45 vintage image from the Secret Garden collection – one of my favorite designer paper packs. To make the design a bit more interesting I cut the front 3 cm smaller than the back of the card to reveal the designer paper on the inside. I added a Spellbinders D-Lites “Flourish Trim” die cut to the edge as a finishing touch. The image was raised with adhesive foam squares to hide the two sentiment tags. As I am a detail junkie I added some little birdies, paper daisies, lace and pearls to ensure the recipient of this card have lots of things to look at!
