|I could not get the pinks to show up I wanted the white embossing to shine on the picture so the pinks just kind of fade together and look really pale.|
I used JustRites Nested Oval Medallion Labels die to cut out the frame and Nested Medallion Labels for the saying they are a nice compliment to each other. First I stamped the frame from the Your special day medallion labels stamp set with versa mark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. I did the same with the Have faith and the Lace border on the Labels 18 mat I cut. I used Follow your heart Be Happy 6 x 6 paper from My Minds Eye for the card. I sanded the edges to give a shabby chic look. I used a spellbinders dies Bitty Blossoms by Donna Salazar for the flowers and leaves. The butterfly was punched using a Tonic Punch. The dies I used for the fold over flaps were spellbinders labels 18 and Grand labels one.I also added a magnet closer to the flap to keep it closed. I used 2 shades of pink ( I just could not seem to add the brighter pink to this card) and the soft greenish aqua from the green stems and leaves in the picture. I know it was a bit of a stretch but it is suppose to be your interpretation of the inspiration so I hope it passes the requirements.
The challenge this week over at JustRite is soft pastel colors and I love how this turned out. I just love getting ideas from Pinterest and never try then this time I did!!!
