Hello and good afternoon to you all.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Crafters Cafe.  Challenge #90.  FRIENDSHIP.

Lil Red Wagon.  Challenge #263.  50 SHADES OF ....ORANGE.

Seize the Birthday.  MONOCHROMATIC......SEEING ORANGE.

For my card I have used a variety of different card, paper, dies & punches.
The first two layers for the background are plain cardstock, and all edges have a gold decorative border to highlight and add definition too.
Using the designer papers from the Blank Canvass Paper Pad, I have die-cut squares using the
Spellbinders ORNATE SQUARES & FLEUR DIS LIS dies These have been positiomned at angles.
My image has been coloured with promarkers and double-mounted and trimmed with deckle scissors then mounted on sticky pads to make 3D.
Usng scraps of papers from the sheets used, I have punched small daisies and layered them, then added buttons for the centres. I have also used small paper flowers and the leaves have been die-cut using the Spellbinders FOLIAGE SET out of textured card.
I have punched an embossed butterfly in two layers, then added gems for the body. The bow is hand-tied using orange and white polka dot ribbon
Finally my sentiment has been cut and trimmed with deckle scissors and positioned using sticky pads.

Thank you very much for coming to visit, I hope that you like what you see.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xx
