Over at Paper Pal Arts, they are hosting a gorgeous challenge using this picture as inspiration:
So going on from the cards that I posted yesterday, I came up with this card:
I have clear embossed the flourish from 'baroque motifs', then heat set a glittered image from the 'welcome christmas' set and turned it into a bauble using the ornament punch. The sentiment is from the hostess set 'occasional quotes'. Over at the Winter Wonderland site, they are also hosting a challenge to use a christmas bauble, so I guess this cards fits into that category too.
While I was making this card, I kept thinking that it would look lovely with butterflies too, so I quickly whipped one up:
I have not added a sentiment yet because I wasn't sure what I wanted to use it for, but I think this one would make a lovely wedding card. Rather than clear embossing the flourish, I heat set it with dazzling diamonds, and the butterflies are white embossed onto vellum with some sparkle added to their wings after I cut them out. My craft room is full of sparkle at the moment! As you can appreciate, sparkle is very difficult to photograph so you will just have to imaging that both of these cards are very shiny ane sparkly IRL!
It has been such a long time that I have played along with a challenge, it has been fun doing so again!
