Compose a Card with Becky #6

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! Here's a card I created for the most recent "Compose a Card with Becky" challenge!

It's based on this recipe:

These challenges are so much fun! Every Tuesday Becky provides the "recipe" (like the one above), a video, music, an inspiration photo, and a sample!! Then, you take all of that great inspiration, turn into a project of your own, and link it to her site!

I used my white Zing! embossing powder to emboss the flower images (Art Impressions). I then embossed the flower twice on a separate piece of gray cardstock and fussy cut a couple of the petal layers to layer on top of the flower in the corner of the card. I felt like it still needed a little something, so I dry embossed the stems and leaves on the top and left sides (They don't show up so great in the photo. Sorry about that.)

The button was a total fluke. It's actually two buttons that were stuck together in my stash! I picked it up, thinking it was one button, and said, "Wow! What luck! This is the perfect button for this card!" Then, when I turned the button over to thread the floss through, the smaller button in the middle fell out. So, I stuck it back in there and threaded them together! HA! Too funny!

Here's a close-up:

The recipe calls for Enchanted Evening Satin Riboon, but I don't have any of that (or ANY dark blue or navy satin ribbon), so I used white instead.

I LOVE it! Really like the dimension on the flower in the corner. Great job on the challenge!

Stunning card! The scale of the flower is great and that button combination is a Wow of a find! Great challenge card.

Sharron said...

Awesome--love it! Great job with all the dimension. I like how you added the touch of dry embossing and layered one flower. And a 'layered' button too--how fun!

Aimes said...

It's gorgeous! I love that you used white ribbon, really brings out those beautiful flowers!
