|Sneak Peek of card|
I was also thinking about the SCS inspiration challenge 489 in the back of my mind so I mixed the two challenges. The Pottery Barn was the site for inspiration and I pulled mine from this picture. The sand and greens are here and that little greenhouse terrarium reminds me of the frame that I used. Flowers and greenhouse shaped terrariums just go together anyway!
I chose the Spellbinders Reflective Moment Die Cut as my card base and cut four of them so that I would have a sturdy base to hold the weight of all those flowers! I used two for the front and two for the back. I sponged with Memento London Fog ink. I embossed the pink card stock and sponged again. Distressing the edges and curling up the corner was also done.
The next layer is Su! Sahara Sand and I stamped it with the French Script background stamp. More distressing was done on this layer and then I added the embossed white corner.
The flowers were layered on top of the corner. The pink flowers were white and I hand colored them with distress ink. I added green swirly leaves with the ODBD Fancy Foliage die and then tucked in the white flowers along with the stick pin. All the while I was adding the flowers, I had the frame sitting on the card for placement.
The frame was made from a Martha Stewart Silicone Mold Set called Frame and Flourishes. I used Model Magic clay by Crayola and then sponged a little London Fog ink on the edges. I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to the frame. I then added a layer of crystal effects as faux glass. A bow and some Pearl Bling finished everything off.
