Special Lady

It's Quirky Challenge time again and this time the challenge is to make a card for a special lady, and to include circles, gems or pearls and flowers.

 The sponsor is The Cutting Cafe, and I used sets Its All About Mom and A Spring Day. There are so many images and sentiments in each large set, they are very good value and you can also buy cutting files for electronic die cutting machines.

I decided to use my cut and dry foam (had to hunt for it) and Distress inks, which I am pleased with however they made the printer ink smudge a little. I cut an aperture in a square card blank using Spellbinders Nestabilities small circles, mounted the word block inside the card, then cut out flowers to decorate the front. There is a Sizzlet die cut flourish too, that corner needed something else. The sentiment has bubble stickers over the printed flowers. I used Promarkers on the small flowers and the striped middle of the flower inside.

This is the inside:

I could have made some more flowers to cover the back of the ones you can see the back of, or coloured both sides, I didn't think of it at the time (I might be able to rectify that), I was up against the deadline. I had hoped to also have made at least one more card that I started a week ago, however I have been quite ill with a nasty virus that kept getting worse so I ended up in bed for a few days. At least I have lost a bit of weight!
Anyway do please hop on over to Quirky to see some more great examples and join in if you want to win a great prize of some of these great digi sets.
