Case Study : 7th Challenge

I've been a bad blogger lately... So sorry for being missing for so long. I had so many weddings to shoot for the month of Sept & Oct... In fact, Pixous is fully booked till Nov...

Last Sunday, I had the chance to make a card... A card for My Parents who's celebrating their anniversary end of this month. Surprised my mum with a bouquet of flowers and this card... :D

Also, this card is for the 7th Case study challenge by Mariana Grigsby. Here's the case :


Here's my take :

I distressed the center of the butterfly with some Broken China distress ink to give it the blue-ish look
I love how green, pink & blue blend so well together

The recipe to my card :

Pattered Paper : Girls Paperie (love it so much) - Distressed with Tea DYe & Tattered rose ink.
Card Stock : Bazzil Kraft, Translucent Green Paper (Antalis)
Stamps : Hero Arts Everyday Sayings (stamped with StazOn Timber Brown)

Embellishments :
1 punched Monarch butterfly (distressed/tinted with Broken China)
Laces distressed with tea dye ink.

Martha Stewarts Large Monarch Butterfly punch

Thanks for dropping by...
