Creative Card Challenge #5



This card is for the 5th challenge in the 75 Creative Card Challenges magazine.  My sister and I are working through the entire magazine and this challenge is to make a quilt card.  I chose a quilt patterned diecut that I cut with my CraftRobo machine.  This is something I cut a long time ago and I am glad that I was able to clear a tiny bit of the stash.  I used K & Co. flower diecuts, handmade paper leaves and leaf corsage pins for the bouquet.  I love the sparkly border and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge accented with distress ink.  I am submitting this card to the TCP Tuesday Challenge which is flowers and also to Mark's Finest Papers punched border challenge.  The Allsorts Challenge Blog is also having a flowers challenge.  There are so many fun challenge blogs out there!


 
Since I had leftover cardstock and extra border already punched, I thought I would whip up a tag.  I usually freehand tag shapes, but I actually used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to mark the tag top.  For some reason, it looks so much better when I use a tool.  The purple flower and leaves are more diecuts from my machine that I made ages ago.  The leaves have been covered with diamond glaze for more dimension.  I think it turned pretty well for scraps.  I entered this tag in the CYDI? Butterflies Challenge and the Flutterby Wednesday #253 Challenge.
