Birthday flower

Hi there!

I LOVE the beautiful color palette Nance picked for this week's challenge at The paper players !

It made me think of the soft and elegant card made by Therese as inspiration at The flower challenge , so I combined elements of the 2 challenges and came up with this birthday card which I will also link at Seize the birthday (no topping option).



A closer look:


I used copper foil from Deco foil, a flower from the Silhouette store and a sentiment from Miss Kate Cuttables.
I layered the flower over pink vellum and added pink enamel dots as a final touch.

Caseing the following aspects for the flower challenge:

  • Layout (sketch)
  • Die cut flower over pattern
  • Using (some of) the colors and embellishments



             


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

Wat een mooie zachte en elegante kaart!
Her is de sneeuw alweer verdwenen, was het vanmorgen gemeen koud en nu schijn 't zonnetje en word het vanmiddag weer een graad of 8. Niets zo veranderlijk als het weer hier... Groetjes, Gerrina

There's a very nice flow to this design. Soft and pretty. I've always been fond of copper and pink together. Love how you backed up the flower with vellum. Nice!

I love those copper foil dots. Now that I finally have a laminator, I'll have to try some ideas like your dots. Your card is so pretty, and will be much appreciated by the recipient.
