I was asked by Leah to be a guest designer for the Paper Blooms challenge blog for this month and I jumped at the opportunity. If you haven't participated on this blog before then why don't you give them a go it is a wonderful blog. Leah makes her own crocheted blooms and butterflies and she sent me some to use on my cards for this month. Today the challenge was Monochromatic so I chose to make mine white and may I say that this is the very first time I have created an all white card and I love it!!!! I used my Victoria, Swiss Dots and Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folders to create that look of texture on my card. The Swiss Dots is used on the scallop oval. I wanted this card to be soft, feminine and elegant, therefore I chose to use Ranger Tea Dye distress ink instead of a harsh colour like black or red or similar. I used my brand new Oval All stamp set from SU. I have to say I love how this card turned out. I used my crocheted butterfly on the upper right side giving her two Kaisercraft rhinestones at the tip of her antennas.
I look forward to seeing what you all create this fortnight and I hope to see heaps more people taking part in the challenge from here on in. I promise you will not regret it.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
