Best Wishes …

Hello friends,

I created this card in the shabby chic style for the challenge at The Card Concept. To celebrate their One Year Anniversary with them they gave this beautiful 26-One Year Celebrationinspirational picture to use. The pink flowers on the white, with the hint of blue in the background caught my eye and I took this as inspiration for my card. I started off with a layer I created with pink distress inks to create a watercolor effect as background. I then added a lattice layer to give more dimension to the hanging sign board and flower arrangement. The flowers are chosen for their different shades of pink as portrayed in the picture. Some aqua pearls and white stamens complete the card. I listed the dies I used in the project details at the end of the post. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following 3 challenges:

  • The Card Concept Challenge #26 (ends 01/19) – Happy One Year Anniversary (Shabby Chic Style)
  • Try It On Tuesdays Challenge (ends 01/20) – My Favourite Things (I love my flowers and dies)
  • Scrapy Land Challenges #9 (ends 01/21) – Anything Goes using any brand of die Scrapy Land sells. (Spellbinders Shapeabilities “Fancy Lattice” ; Spellbinders die D’Lites “Sentiments One” and Impression obsession die  “Heart Flourish 126-U”)
