Marianne Design Divas Shaped Card

Time for the next Marianne Design Divas challenge, and sorry I'm a day late posting .. .. time just runs away with me these days!  We have changed the rules a little to make it easier for you to enter so please check the blog for details.  Our sponsors this time are Marianne Design and Buddly Crafts, I've linked up the MD products I used to the Buddly Crafts shop to make your shopping easier!

The option is to make a shaped card, and with Easter not far off, I've made an egg card.  It does stand up on it's own as I cut a sliver off the bottom of the back, but for my picture I've lent the card up against a couple pieces of rough rose quartz.  Any how, on to the details of the products:

Here's a close up of the flowers I made.  I have a confession - I made these last year but have had them in my bit box for ages. so I'm not entirely sure what die I used for the crumpled inner petals .. ..

The bigger outer petals are definitely from CR1202, the smallest die.  I've cut from Mulberry paper then inked with yellow inks, spritzed and shaped so that when dry they hold.  I think the inner petals are from the smallest die in set CR1203, but any small petalled die would work.  Again inked, spritzed and scrunched up.  I coloured the pearl centres with Copic pen so they would be yellow instead of white.  The feathers seemed a nice addition for Easter, and I used some of the flat back pearl trim from Buddly Crafts to accentuate the curve of the wave borders and there's a little raffia from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, please take a look at the beautiful projects the rest of the DT have made, they are stunning - I wish I had their talent.  Special thanks to Monika who inspires me to have a go at making my own flowers.  She has tutorials on her blog if you want to try too!

The Creative Inspirations blog theme is 'Nature' so I will enter my card with them seeing as I have flowers and feathers and natural raffia.
