Today I have the card I made for this months Design team contribution for Happy Little Stampers anything goes birthday challenge. I actually made this ages ago as a card for my Aunties birthday back in the spring! But I saved it to share on the blog.
I used some patterned paper that is quite grungy as the background and ran it through the Old Paper embossing folder.
I added a ribbon to give some more texture, choosing a wide grey grosgrain ribbon from the stash. Next I chose lots of panels of the dsp left in my stash from the patterned paper play I did a few months ago.
Next I chose to use some gorgeous stamped and coloured flowers and leaves to intersperse with the panels and tags.
I added some brads and the little metal key charm too to add some different types of bling from my usual kind of gems … nice to mix things up occasionally!
I then stamped and fussy cut the sentiment and added that on the top!
Love how it ended up … a bit different from the usual cards I have previously made for my auntie but I am sure she liked it even if not the usual pinks or yellows.
