Lovely Lotus Blossoms
This week's Simple Salutations Challenge was to make a Feminine Birthday card. I'm so glad for this challenge because this layout with the lotus blossoms has been floating around in my head for a while.
I was looking for the perfect paper and found this in my "What on Earth?" pile but on a 5 X 7 card, it was perfect. I love the fluidity the lines bring. Please tell me you have "What was I thinking?" supplies stashed somewhere. I'd hate to think I was the only one.
The sentiment and flower came from the same Lotus Blossom set. The lotus blossoms were paper pieced and I just highlighted them with a little bit of Copic markers for a touch of depth. The die cuts were outlined in my gold marker again. What can I say, I'm running low on gold cardstock and Christmas is coming! The sentiment was heat embossed in gold.
Challenges this Card Meets:
Speedy TV's Simple Salutations - Feminine Birthday Card
Craft Room Challenge - Photo Inspiration (I used the lines on the teacup.)
