Girl Collecting Flowers

I’ve just finished a card this afternoon and would like to enter it into a few of challenges:

Hope you all like my card.

Here’s the card:

This is how I made it:

The base easel card, two square toppers and two patterned edge layers were cut out of two different shades of linen textured, 250gsm, cardstock using my Cameo.  The cutting file used was TWISTED EASEL CARD by Clive Couter.  I used a Petite Petal Pairs punch to punch out lots of flower layers from the waste of the two sheets after cutting the card out.

The digi-stamp I used is one of the ones on Joanna Sheen’s Daisy and Friends CD ROM printed out twice onto Super Smooth card.  I used various shades of ProMarkers to colour in the digi-stamp, using one of the shades from her dress to colour in the frame of the digi-stamp as well.

I shaped all the flower layers by hand before sticking them together.  I stuck the square panels directly to half of the card front and then built up the fancy layers using 1mm deep foam tape.  I used the same foam to attach the coloured in topper layers as well.  I used Pinflair Glue Gel to stick the flowers around the card, using two as stoppers for the easel elements.

I hope that it meets the rules of all the challenges I’ve entered.
