I am not totally happy with this card, I made it as a result of a colour combo challenge which I am far too late to enter but I wanted to try the combo, as it pushes me outside my comfort colour zone.
I was trying to get it posted and rushed it to a certain extent, in that it took me a week to finish but I could have spent more thinking about it!
Sometimes there are good cards, sometimes not so good, and I am showing the not so good today.
I die cut the peony Nestabilities dies in red and teal, and felt they needed a contract panel behind to seperate them from the teal card, but I could have put the flower on a different colour card blank, or a large panel that covers most of the front with a better effect perhaps.
I did start off with a long thin panel behind the flower and the stem, but that wasn't quite right, so tried several different shapes both die cut and like this one which was just a rectangle with the corners clipped with a MS border punch called cornice that I have just bought after seeing it used like this!
I do like what I managed to do with the flower, which was to use the handle of my eyelet setter pushed into the middle to round the petal layers a bit, so it is not so flat.
The flower centre is a teal button with teal cord, the greeting is Dymo tape written, and the small flowers are Papermania with teal Papermania gems.
Paula, if you see this before it arrives I hope you like it. Its the thought that counts - right?
I just noticed that the ABC challenge blog has a challenge this week of B is for Buttons, so I have entered this card, has a button so I can! The link to the challenge blog is in my side bar.
