I don't usually post 2 times in one day, but I missed yesterday. It took me 2 days to make this card for some challenges that end today. Why did it take so long? Well, I just was not happy with the growing results. Did that ever happen to you?
I had such a pretty card in mine. One of the challenges is to use the faux silk technique. I was excited since I love the look of this technique though it had been a long time since I used it. I decided that this card would be worthy of my much cherished and extremely horded velvet and washi papers.
Here is the finished card. I had fits trying to find embellishments to work well with the card. I had ordered some really tiny flowers that would have been perfect for it, but they had not come in yet. I used some larger ones and just stopped thinking about how cute the tiny flowers would look. I finished the card by lunch...then guess what came in the mail in the afternoon! Yup...my ordered flowers, lol
I don't have the money to order those pretty pearl swirls I see so often. I did find, however, these glittery metal swirls in the floral section and hoped they would add that little something that was missing.
Does my post sound blah...lol...that is because I am not the happiest with the results, but I really wanted to enter it into the challenges. Sew...here it is.
