3 challenge's in 1 card :-)


I made this card following the lovely sketch by Mumur de France on the Friday Sketcher's Challenge. I lso followed the theme on the Whiff of Joy Monday Challenge which is 'Lavendar and Lace' It also qualifies for the Pink Elephant Challenge which is 'Ribbons and Die cuts' :-)
Instead of making a big circle in the background I decided to use my cricut to cut a big flower out of flowery vellum, which I then stuck onto the same flower which I cut out of white paper so it would show up a little bit better. I should have stuck the vellum to the white paper with my xyron before cutting the flower !! will do next time !!!
The image is one of my new spring WOJ collection which I masked and then used the flowery stamp to create a garden, I used a WOJ butterfly stamp too, I added vellum wings and stickles so it could fly :-)
The swirly corners and grassy weeds in the foreground was also cut out on the cricut.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments :-)
