I got busy this morning and created a card for the new challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. The challenge asks that you use lace and handmade flowers on your card and of course, you must use a Sassy Cheryl image.
I made this card using all sorts of scraps from my craft supplies, including the yellow and purple card stock. The background polka dot paper, the stripe and the big flower paper are all from Provo Craft and the little polka dot paper is from Making Memories. I don't remember who made the the paper I used to make the flower. I did the bottom layer with a 1" circle punch from Recollections following a tutorial I found here but then decided it needed another layer and that was cut using an EK Paper Shapers punch. All the petals were inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink (Ranger).
The Sassy Cheryl image is called A Simple Gift of a Flower and was coloured with Prismacolors and blended with Gotrick OMS. Then it was cut using the Labels 16 die from Spellbinders and inked with Milled Lavender Distress Ink (Ranger). The lace is from my sewing closet and the button came from Fabricland.
