I made this card this morning to fit in with 3 different challenges.
All card I bought from The Paper Mill and Hobby Craft, I used some gold peel offs and I used a Sugar Nellie Image on it as well to fit in with one of the challenges. I used a patterned circular template to cut out the aperture on the front of the card by hand, and instead of putting an insert into the card, I put used another piece of coordinating card, and I stamped the image onto that, so it shows through the aperture.
For the bling, I used a sparkly card but this doesn't show up very well on the photo, sorry about that, I also used a pearl brad on the centre of the flower, which I cut out for embellishment.
On the sketch which Sugar Bowl Challenge have given us to follow, it shows a pattern around the image, instead of using card and laying it into a pattern, I re created the pattern by using peel off's and laying them on the front of the card in the same pattern for a more subtle effect.
The Challenges I'm entering are as follows:-
1) Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog # 40 - Do It Yourself!
2) Sir Stampalot Blog August Challenge - Bring on the Bling
3) Dutch Dare Card Challenge # 83 - Anything Goes
I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it.
