Joan's Floral Patterned Paper and Punch Challenge

Thank goodness for Joan's challenges! They keep me uploading to my blog at least weekly! Joan's challenges can be found here:

This week the challenge is to use floral patterned paper and Martha Stewart corner and border punches. I love the look of black and white and couldn't resist this paper by imaginisce called To Love & Cherish. I've not mastered punching around the whole page so I punched the corners and a border using the traditional eyelet punches. I colored in a few of the flowers on the paper using chalk pastels. The pearl flourish is Zva self adhesive pearls; they kind of get lost in the floral pattern! The butterfly is the Stampin Up Beautiful Wings embosslit. Cardstock is SU Basic Black and Basic Grey; butterfly is Whisper White and layered 4 times and adhered with a dimensional.

Joan's Vintage Challenge

Challenge #2 at is to create a vintage card using patterned paper and nesties. I used Webster Pages 6x6 sheet of patterned paper and the deckle nesties. The sentiment is from the stampin up set called Very Versatile. Lace is from PaperStudio and I darkened it using tea dye distress ink; butterflies are Martha Stewart punches and MS branch punch. The button is from Webster Pages vintage sparkler buttons. A fun card to make using the gorgeous Webster Pages paper. After assembling the card I gave it a dose of Pearl Glimmer Mist all over!
