AT Joan's Gardens Challenge #7

 Polka dots 
This is a side fold shape card using Labels Seventeen (S5-025) by Spellbinders on the blue polka dotted card base, the cardfront and the vellum overlay.  The vellum overlay is embossed with Musical Flourish (Cuttlebug) EF, The oval for the sentiment (from  SU Faith in Nature Stampset) is a Lifestyle Crafts nested oval. After I embossed the vellum I colored the flourishes with Tim Holtz Distress Marker (Tumbled Glass), turned it over and then carefully stippled the negative areas using a stylus and a metal Pergamano Perforating Grid  The Flower  is Marianne Creatibles #LR0250 die where I scotch taped the back, and then pressed in extra fine shimmer powder adhering it to the open areas of the flower. I placed Martha Stewart rhinestones from a blue and purple embellishment set over the glimmered area of the flower. Pearls are by SU. All products except those from Stampin Up are available at Joan's Gardens

    This is a lovely card. So soft and love the technique you used for the vellum and flourish. Can't decide which one is my favorite, as they are all beautiful.

  2. Priss, Beautiful card. Love the detail on the flourish and how you finished it off. The vellum technique is beautiful. Can't decide which on is my favorite as they are all so beautiful.
