Simply Create Too Challenge #113

Back again with a new challenge from Simply Create Too #113, featuring the theme of "Red, Blue or White". I don't think there's any confusion over which colour I chose, is there?

I was creating a baby card but scrapped it in favour of an old fave style of mine which is the Shabby Chic flower cluster. I haven't made a card like this in such a long time and still have many gorgeous flowers in my stash (plus it's a niece's birthday on Sunday and I can give it to her).

I started the card with a woven background made from offcut strips of cardstock. (You can't really see it in the photo though.) To make it easier to attach to the card base, I covered the card front with Elizabeth Crafts 64mm wide double-sided tape and then stuck the mat to it. I then only needed to stick down the little ends on top. (Nice and neat!) I then added some cheesecloth/gauze, before adding the pale blue lace, flowers, leaves and the die cut sentiment (which is cut from white cardstock multiple times and glued together, coloured with a Tombow marker and then coloured with a blue Wink of Stella pen. I used the two blues for greater depth of colour.)

Hope you like my card. Join us at Simply Create Too Challenge Blog and see what our other artisans have created.

Bye for now.
