Les Fleurs !

For my Katzelkraft DT project I'm sharing a card which I've made for an order. I tend to get swamped with birthday card orders on the run up to Christmas and this year is no exception! Heaven knows when I'll get some Christmas cards made !

As usual I started with the background and I used Pan Pastels and stamped the images with Versamark. I then stamped the text with black Archival ink. The vertical panel is a torn page from an old book that's been give the Distress Ink treatment. The horizontal panel is embossed using a Quickutz folder and then I've rubbed Distress Inks over it. The main image is from the Fleurs set and I've dropped a blob of Glossy Accents in the centre of the flower.The dragon fly on the tag is from the Wings set.

The butterfly is a Tim Holtz mini butterfly die and I've cut it from Grunge Paper and then stamped the butterfly from the Wings set on to it. The flower is cut out using the Tattered Flowers die and I've coloured it with Distress Inks.

I'm entering this card into the Cupcake Craft challenge which is 'Textalicious', use something with text on.

The stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzelkraft in France.
