But last night, I was able to sit down and make a card for Moxie Fab's challenge.
I love the pretty pinks in the image, and the slightly shabby flowers.
I have kept it quite clean and simple for me.
I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Distress Stripes for the background.
The stripes are an old Hero Arts stamp - Background stripes
The flower is made with the Spellbinders Rose Creations Die.
I have used Distress Ink Markers to colour the flower.
The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Everyday Sayings CL342
For the centre of the flower I have used a few small seed beads.
The card is finished off with three Rhinestones.
I am always completely amazed how these tiny elements do SO much on a card.
For my eye, they repeat rounded shapes on a small scale, and they kind of hap-hazardly, frame and enhance the focal point.
See what you think.
