Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Challenge 108

I had so much fun making this card! I loved the sketch and all the new cards being shown at Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Challenge!

As I look at so many designers cards and their blogs- I'm getting great ideas to use, and sometimes I locate a new challenge here and there. I found Pear Tree Designs and their Mothers Day challenge, such sweet ladies. And that blog lead me to few more. Fun fun!

I really wanted to make a romantic card like the ones being loaded up at "CPWSC". I just got my cuttlebug and new embossing plates yesterday. Again I'm using scrap paper from the box, the card body is fresh though.

So much happening on this card. The flowers are on a lace strip (purchased for flip flop deco) I cut a few loose and used sticky dots to adhere. Little punched leaves and beads on wire, my creation, to finish the flowers. The bird is left over from another card. It has two layers and is closely taped at the top, while the bottom has two layers of puffy tape for shadow. Lots of stickles on the bird and flowers. The lace topper is sewn to the back part of the card instead of the front flap. Grossgrain ribbon, some old buttons and some cricut cuts complete the card. I love it! It's my favorite of all my cards yet made.

I hope my mother will enjoy this card. Thank for visiting.
