Mother's Day and felt flowers

I've made this card for my Mom for Mother's Day (which in Poland is on May 26th).
The idea was to make the whole white, using the colors only for flowers, allowing them to pop.

To make the all-white card interesting I've needed to use a lot of texture and dimension. For the background I've used translucent structure paste over stencil. And for the rest of the card I've used lots of die cut layers both from cardstock and vellum.

Now this flowers are my newest addiction. They're so fun to make and look so cute. I saw them a while ago on Jennifer McGuire blog (and, of course, I can't find the post right now :-/) and loved the idea so much that I needed to try them myself. Now I have full box of them ready to be changed into hair accessories or card embellishments.

Also, I like to enter this card for the challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog. Challenge was to use dies. My card uses Nellie's Choice circle dies and Joy Crafts flower dies.
The sentiment is a combination from two stamps from Agateria.

Hope you like it.

Iris folding and a challenge

Once again I needed to make a card very very quickly.
I though that iris folded shape would be an easy and relatively quick to make, main element of my card.
I've chose the colors from a patterned paper from Echo Park Paper Happy Days 6x6 paper pad.
And to make it more interesting just added some matching flowers that I luckily had in my stash.

Last but not least I added some sparkle to different elements of my card with Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen and some Glossy Accents.

The sentiment stamp I've used comes from the store I truly love, Agateria.

Also I'm putting this card for a challenge at Simon Says Stamp blog

And that is it for now.

Hi guys,
this is a card I've made for my boyfriend's birthday.
The idea started with a piece of music sheet. I've paired it with a brad from Artemio and that gave me a color combination for a whole card.

To age the music paper I distressed its edges with Tim Holtz paper distressed.
Also added some machine stiching for some interest.

The sentiment is combined from two stampsets:
The Girls' Paperie "Kitch" and the set from Marianne Design.
