Compose a Card 2



Hi everyone!! Becky has another fun Compose a Card challenge!! I am loving her new challenges, thanks Becky!!! I've been wanting to do white on white for a while, I think it is beautiful, but when I go downstairs to create, I never seem to think of it, maybe now since I have done it once I will on occasion! I wanted to give my card something, so I came up with the idea to put the cut flowers in my Swiss Dots embossing folder, after I attached everything and stamped the sentiment, it really needed something more and I got the idea to paper pierce, I started with piercing below the sentiment, remembered another piercer I have that has leaves and thought that would work well with the flowers! The top white layer and the flowers popped up with pop dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  5. So Pretty! It's interesting to read how a card cover 'evolves'. It's knowing when to stop that counts. Your addition of paper piercing was great!
