Start A Scrapbook May Card Challenge


One of the new forums I am playing at has a weekly card challenge. Start A Scrapbook gave us an example card and the idea is to use it as inspiration for making one based on the ideas you gain from that card. Here's my attempt.

It was a fun card to make. I tried a few different things such as inking the edge of the card front instead of using olour for the entire card (so the inside wound up staying white - easy to write on hey?), stamping a sort of scene on a larger piece of white paper and adhering other elements to that, and I used some scented gel pens to draw some extra circles. You may not be able to tell but the sentiment and flowers are popped up. There are cute little flower crystals as well as some Kaiser crystals on there too. All stamped images are from Stampin' Up!

What do you think?

Fabulous card, love the design!
I don't seem to make cards anymore. I do the odd layout for my DT but recently made some altered art to send to some forum friends. My new work colleagues don't buy handcrafted cards they'd rather pay ££'s for shop bought!!
