Remains of the Day


There's a challenge on UKS Cyber Crop for making a card with the scraps leftover from anyone of the classes you've done. I had some papers left from Our Story class what was brilliant about that the patterned card is double sided so the swirl paper had this beautiful Aqua colour on the back and the dotty had the brown. 
I've used the Fabulous Florets from Stampin Up I've been dying to use them and I know I will using them again. 
The leaves are also a Stampin Up die all embossed and inked, the sentiment is LOTV and the dotty border is a Martha Stewart punch but with only the tiny dots showing. I finished with some brown pearls but it appears I've lost one off the one of the flowers.

I saw this sketch on someones blog and I wanted to have a go but then couldn't find it again so not sure if I remembered it correctly but still love how this turned out. I run the brown patterned paper through the Stampin Up woodgrain folder and it wasn't keen on my card that the core broke through. So repairs were done with a brown ink pad and it made the wood more life like. Then it was just to punch a flower with my Funky flower punch and  a snowflake punch for the centre. A few pearls and LOTV sentiment job done.
