HA Birthday Challenge

UPDATED : RUNNER UP AT DYNAMIC DUOS
************************************************************************

Brenda - Floral Fantasies is celebrating her 5th Blogaversary and she is having an awesome giveaway.  All you need to do is share your favourite crafting item by entering your piece of artwork.  I must say that my favourite is cuttlebug.


Today's card is rather intricate and it took me ages to figure out how to make this intricate die cut into a frame.   There are days when I thought, I just had to try something new and don't give up.

I made 4 times of this die cut from spellbinder Radiant Rectangles to have a firm frame for the front and back.

Using another die cut label eighteen for the front and back panels.  White embossed the smaller panel with HA manuscript background and distressed in wornlipstick and peel paint.  The sentiment  is heat embossed in white on a vellum.  The butterfly is from the HA Antique Engravings which is heat embossed and distressed in the two colour inks.

I am also entering this card into Dynamic DuosStamping Sensations

Hello Lai-Yoke,

This is a sheer delight and I am so pleased to stuck with it as it's so beautifully delicate.

If it helps any I also struggle working out the intricacies of some dies, they are very pretty but do take some working out at times, but as you pretty card proves worth the time and effort.

Thank you so much for joining in my blog celebration and good luck when it comes to the prize draws.
