I will be honest with you. I am not big on pattern/designer papers on my card. I used them sparingly. So this challenge was easy for me. Since I design for Taylored Expressions, I decided to use their beautiful dies to showcase on my card. I started with sponging Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean on the centre of the card front. Then I die cut two frames using Frame in Frame die set – one rectangle frame for the outer edge of the card front and one curved design smaller frame to frame the focal point. The outer frame is adhered using foam to give it dimension and  the inner frame is glued on the card front flush.

For the focal point, I have used Scribbled Flowers die set. I watercoloured the base of the flowers and leaves using Peerless watercolour. The scribbled layer is just white cardstock. I have clustered the flowers and leaves and adhered a flowers using foam and leaves glued down. The sentiment is from One and Only You stamp set and die. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and rest of the sentiment is die cut using gold foil cardstock. Finally adhered Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly Clear and Onyx sequins to complete the card.

So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
