The Denim Flower


I really struggled with this card and I'm still not sure about it.  The starting point for the design was the denim flower, I was so chuffed that I'd made it myself,  I was determined to use it on this card.  I changed everything around trying to make it work, hence the mess on my desk.


Now looking at the photo I'm thinking it's the flower that is the problem, it's too heavy for the paper design.  You live and learn!  Anyway, I'm still going to enter it for the Dies To Die For challenge over at Let's Craft and Create.  I've used the Tim Holtz On the Edge Brackets die.

Cardstock:  Stampin Up Crumb Cake
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey June Bug
Ivory Organza Ribbon
Vintage button
Denim Fabric Scraps
Tiny Brads

I'd like to thank my  lovely blogging buddy Emma for this award she very kindly gave me a few weeks back.


I'm still struggling to think of 7 (interesting) things about myself so I can't pass it on yet.

  2. I think it looks great, and goes really well with that gorgeous orange paper. You may have to do a tutorial, got loads of spare denim as my darling daughter has just ripped a big hole in the knee of her jeans.

  9. I think it looks great, too.

    Maybe you have critical fatigue? you know, you've looked at it so long you can't decide if it's right or wrong. Hmmm. Next thing to do- either look at it in a mirror, this will change the way you look at it and help you judge it, or- put in a drawer for a few days, ignore it, then go have another look.
