1 QUICK CARD.....TO COVER 2 CHALLENGES.



Well i wanted to join in with a couple of the challenges,but i've been pushed for time so it had to be a pretty quick and simple card.....no stamping or colouring,well i stamped the sentiment that took all of a second...lol.
Not my usual type of card,but hey i rather like it now it's finished.
The 2 challenges are Basicgrey challenge 27 which this week the theme is "TEXTURE"and Colour Create challenge 8 which this week is "NAVY,TURQUOISE and LIME",gorgeous colour combo.
For my card i've used Basic grey "Urban Prairie","Boxer"and "Offbeat",i've cut the flower out using shapeabilities Nested Flowers then i've used Swiss dots embossing folder to give some texture. the butterflies have also been cut out and embossed on the Wizard.I've used silicone gel between each of the flower layers to give some dimension and height.The butterfly i've made up of i each of the colours like the flower.
I've used my MS punch to form the decorative edge along the bottom and in the corner of my card.
The sentiment is by Scappy Cat.
Ribbons,button and gem from stash.
Well thats about it folks....
Take care
San xx

Absolutely stunning card San! I think the style is so eyecatching and shows the colours to perfection for the CC challenge and it's such a wonderful way of using the papers and the texture theme for the BG challenge. I love the big flowers, gorgeous butterfly and the punched borders. Hope you're week is going well and Mum is doing ok. Chris xxx
