I just love the Lady Couture stack of papers I picked up in Ohio last week. This is my second card made from cutouts from this awesome stack. I also love my new Martha Steward border punch and perhaps went a bit overboard with it here, but I like the results. Oh, and my Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch is still one of my favs as you can probably tell if you follow my blog at all. I'm all about flowers, butterflies and bling. And this card has a little of each. I chose dark green card stock for the base of this gate-fold card and lined it with light green. The roses and the chic little lady are hand cut from the stack and the other little flowers are punched and stacked with a bit of bling added to the centers. I stamped 'celebrate' as the sentiment since that allows for a number of different occasions. I placed eyelets to attach the ribbon and added more of the hand cut roses to the inside flaps. The inside center of the card has the same light green as the outer flaps and the same border punch treatment, but is left blank at this point. I will probably hand-write a message there when I decide who gets this awesome card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Pals Paper Arts challenge 130
The Paper Players Spring challenge 85
Cute Card Thursday spring challenge 206
