>PDCC82 and CFC3
Well, I actually had time to stamp today, when I wasn’t helping hubby, who was being kind enough to make some templates on the computer for me :D. This card fulfills 3 challenges, The Play Date Cafe Challenge 82, CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 3, and the Hero Arts monthly challenge, to use flowers. I started with a chocolate brown card base. To the base, I added some pale yellow patterned paper, cut to 5.25 x 4 inches, with 3 rounded corners. I took a 3.5 x 4.75 piece of white cardstock, and using some straight edged scrap paper, distressed the middle portion in Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo Distress ink. Once I was happy with that, I stamped the flower (Hero Arts – Real Flower clear set) 3 times in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Using the Tumbled Glass Distress ink again, I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts) on the bottom white portion of the white layer. I rounded 3 corners of the white cardstock, and adhered it off centre to the yellow patterned paper. To finish the card, I added 5 pale blue gems to the top left hand side, and 3 tiny clear gems to the bottom, just underneath the beginning of the words.
