Sparkly Flowers


     This card was made a little while ago, it's been sitting waiting for the right recipient and that lovely lady has got it now so it's safe to share with CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
     The card is huge, 8 inches square, not a size I would normally use but as it's not been posted it's not a problem and it does give a nice big area to decorate.
     The patterned paper panels are from a Woodware paper pack, with co-ordinating strips and banners. Mat layers are cut from black card with added faux stitching using a white pen.
     The flowers are stamped, embossed and coloured with gel Glaze pens, sprinkled with clear glitter when wet, then cut out when dry, the leaves are just coloured.
     With the addition of ribbon, Candi and buttons the front is complete, which leaves the inside to decorate. Just stamping a greeting inside seemed rather sparse when compared to the front so I have die cut a large flower from white card, coloured the edges with Distress ink, added a greeting and stuck the flower flush to the card. There is still plenty of room to write a message and now the inside looks a little more appealing.
     CrafytHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge runs all month and the only requirement is the use of patterned paper so come along and join us with your creations.
