Checkerboard Card

Heart2Heart  - April 6, 2015 Checkerboard Challenge.  I was going through my older CTMH papers and found several plaid papers, which sorta could be interpreted as checkerboard, and selected one of the plaids from "Promise of Spring Project Pack" which was at least 12 years old from when I used to make cards back East.  The Flower and leaves were from a coordinating design print to the checkerboard (plaid) pattern which I fussy-cut, heat embossed with clear embossing powder, and then rolled, and placed on card with 3D Foam Tape. Butterfly was cut from Cricut Design Space, with white and then glitter paper from the purple pak. The Sentiment was from CTMH  CC1014 Pair-a-Phrase Stamp Set, and the little flair on the sentiment was a scrap piece cutting from the butterfly.   

Stop by Heart2Heart to see the Design Team unique designs, as well as other challengers unique cards, and join us...each week is a challenge but you have all month to submit any of the challenges for that month.  

Another sketch challenge for the same card, but somewhat out of the box, was submitted to Challenge #210: April Sketch Challenge - Die Cuttin Divas

After linking I realized that my flower was not a die-cut but it was a fussy-cut.  The butterfly was my die-cut.  Looking forward to next weeks challenge though because I am a die cuttin diva as you will see from some of my other cards on my blog.

Really love the neutral shades with the pop of green and that gorgeous flower! Thanks for playing along this week with H2H.

I love how you mixed the plaid with this gorgeous flower. The curls of the flower and the leaves are perfect. And using clear embossing powder is one of my favorite techniques. Pretty card!

Love love love that paper! It might be old but it so needs to come back and FAST! I love the soft muted colours on your flowers, they may be soft but they sure do stand out! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H)!

Very pretty, and thanks for the reminder... to look back at my old paper once in a while! I tend to forget :-)

Boy I do not remember that particular print. Time to dig thru my stuff! I do remember the stamp set though. Love it!
