Welcome - AHSC #257

This card was made for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #257.  This is one of my favorite design papers from Bo-Bunny, one side a floral and the other side a great pastel wood panel.  Used a rectangle die with small circles around the background and layered with cocoa cardstock.   Cut three banners from the same background paper, die cut the pinking on each of the banners, layered with cocoa cardstock and adhered directly to background layering one of them in the middle.   Die-cut a circle and placed my fussy-cut florals from the design paper layering them on the circle, distressed the floral edges and added Wink of Stella to the flowers (see close-up photo below to see glitter).  Used Welcome on the banners instead of the bottom corner of the card to make it look like a welcome sign on a wooden door.  

Used the floral design sheet, layered with cocoa cardstock on the bottom border of the inside of the card.

  10. My favourite paper... I love the mixture of colours and the flowers complement the design so perfectly. The shimmer is just enough - not overwhelming but just there. I could see this enlarged on a wall in a house as a decor piece. Gorgeous :)
