Whilst wandering around 'blogland' last week I noticed a card that was elegant and simple, but I thought was also really stunning. Trouble is I can't remember whose blog it was on :(. The idea was to use the backing paper as the main part of the card, and just add a few flat backed jems to add a bit of sparkle.
The card that I saw stuck in my mind as one that was really effective. I know I had some pretty papers in my stash, but wasn't sure how to use them until I realised that they would look fab with some flat back gems added to the middle of the flowers. So this is my take on the the effect of adding gems to flowers, and of course a bit of ribbon and a butterfly.
The papers are from the Henbury Lane pack that I have, and I think they are really pretty. I'll be looking through the rest of my backing papers, to see if I can use any more like this.
I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenge:
