A Forever Card

Hello everyone,

This is my inspirational card for the DCAM Challenge No 2 where the ongoing theme is "Shabby is Chic"
Here is how it looks-

I started the card with the black linen textured card stock from Die Cuts & More , i think it gives a very sturdy base to a project. Lots of intricate dies from Memory Box and Cheery Lynn have gone into this card !The delicate swirls and the gorgeous heart are all Memory Box dies , Die Cuts & More has an amazing and a huge collection of these beauties . And yes best of all the Cheery Lynn Sweet Williams strip,it a must add die if you love making handmade flowers .

Here's a closeup-

I wanted to use this antique watch which i fussy cut from the Prima Engraver Papers , apart from giving a vintage touch it also adds as an embellishment.The background on which the sentiment pieces have been stamped have been distressed with Frayed Burlap, Antique linen and some gesso.And finally i have added the CL Medium Exotic Butterfly to finish the card.

The blooms have been colored with Spun Sugar distress marker with the white center pollen from Die Cuts and More .

Thats it from me ! Hope you like my card, would love to hear from you, Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day ahead
