My inspiration for this card started with today’s challenge at Splitcoaststampers to use script on your card. That would be fun, but first I needed to decide on a card theme and pick the set of stamps to use. I picked the Rue Des Fleurs from Stampin’ Up!.
Next was the sketch. I went with the sketch from Mojo Monday #322.
I’m off the sketch a bit, but this card started to develop and I liked where I was going with it.
For the challenge #11 at C is for Challenges to “Think swirls, twirls, flourishes… They can be everywhere: on you paper, on the image, or as an embellishment.” I had just the wheel to use – see the black embossed background.
Creative Creations Challenges blog asked us to “make your own flowers”.
I knew where I would go for the flowers, but first I needed to decide on a color. Since my card would be for the troops I decided on red for valor. I made my card out of Cherry Cobbler.
I hope you like what I did with this card. Just wanted to say in advance that I really appreciate your comments.
