I hope this post finds everyone well! The sun is shining nice and bright here in Montreal (after 2 days of snow...)! Hopefully warmer weather is on its way.
Today's card was meant to be an anniversary card, but just going by the front, it could be for anything really :)
I started off with the sketch from Card Patterns this week. I added a panel in the back that's been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The frame is cut from my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.
The image is another Sans Designs image (I found their link!!), but I removed the birds that were originally on the ends, and added some wire butterflies that I bent in half so they were positioned sideways like they were holding the banner. I colored the banner in with my colored pencils and added some gems to the tops of each flag.
I cut out a flourish I made with my cricut and then added a few handmade "heart pins" that I smothered in 3D paint and glossy accents. I also added glossy accents to the heart on the banner.
There is a blue ribbon strung under the frame and then I made a little bow with the same ribbon to add to the center of the rosette.
