In perusing the site, I came across this beauty, Magenta Flower Headpiece, and thought of cascading flowers down the front of a card, how pretty!
I started with this:
Some punched flowers (Marvy and SU flower punches), that I inked, folded, and generally grundged up. After a lot of playing around, I ended up here:
I stamped the sentiment (Kay Feley, River City Rubber Works) on burgundy CS, embossed and added a bit of raffia. I used a photo corner punch to add balance to the sentiment side of the card. Antiqued brass brads were added to the centers of the flowers to give interest, dimension and because I really, really like antiqued brass with the grundge look :) Also, the flowers and BG DP is from K&Co. I absolutely love this paper. I think it adds a little pizazz to any creation.
Looking back, I would have added some punched holes to the flowers in keeping with the inspiration piece, but otherwise, I'm very happy with the way it came out.
I'm off to weed a bit in the garden, before it starts raining yet again.
Til next time,
