Well, I've really gone a bit OTT by my standards today! I make a LOT of CAS cards, and often stray into messy or more complex territory, but seldom go full-on ribbon, lace, pearls, flowers, multiple die cuts and the whole shebang. However, Mother's Day is approaching and needs must......
(The usual disclaimer - in real life that ribbon is NOT bright orange, it's a lovely soft peach like the upper die cut doily)
The design of this card is inspired by the Butterfly Challenge where the wheel segments this time are paper piecing, pearls, patterned paper, peach, pink and purple. I've managed to combine all the segments except paper piecing and frankly last week's venture into it was enough to last me for quite some time!
I've used two pink patterned papers, pink heart gems and pink pearl braid, a purple flower, purple die cut butterfly, sentiment and doily and peach ribbon and doily.
Incidentally that doily die is one of my oldest dies and yet I hardly ever use it because although the die cut comes out lovely and cleanly, the waste from all those little holes doesn't. It doesn't matter what I do to help them on their way (and that die has single-handedly killed a Tool'n'One) I end up having to pick them all out from the die with a pokey tool. One. By. One. So you can see how much love has gone into this card. I cut TWO of the blighters!
