Flash Back!

Moving Along With The Times have a flash back challenge this week, to show a card that you made a while back that you are particularly pleased with. This WOW creation is a favourite of mine that I don't think I could improve on - it's a combination of paper pricking and dry embossing on a shimmery pearl paper in the background, different pearl papers cut with various dies and fixed at different heights with foam pads, die cut and punched butterflies, roses made with the Marianne make a flower die and punched leaves. The centre text is by LOTV stamped with Pearlescent Blue ink which is actually more grey in real life. I've inked the embossed areas on the larger butterflies and the edges of the leaves with a very pale pink chalk ink and smothered the card with pearls. It's been sat on my shelf for a while, in a protective cello bag to keep it clean, waiting for a special occasion .. .. but now it's been packed away so hopefully wont be squashed. I'm going to copy it and this time add pale blue ink to the highlight areas, once I get unpacked that is!


  1. What a beautiful card Annie.

  8. Just so beautifully elegant & I love your idea of a pale blue one. The differeing ehights are so effective with all the texture & just that hint of colour.
    Please don't overdo things Annie - I shall be glad when you're a bit more settled.
