Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge - Weddings/Anniversary




Good Morning :)  I hope everyone is having a good week so far. 

Our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is to make something to celebrate either a Wedding or Anniversary, and this is a fabulous excuse to go really lavish and classy to create a special keepsake.  I decided upon White on White, as I love seeing what dimension and detail you can create from something that just started out as  a few sheets of the same pearl white card. 


I used the gorgeous Polynesian Sails Oval frame for the centrepiece of this card as it has a real wow factor and is a great size for any image, and the Border Carnivale die is tucked just behind. I then set about making the flowers using Judy's Blooms and cutting 4 layers (using both large and small for the biggest flower), adding stamen from the Build A Flower set, and then holding them together with pearl brads. I love the way Cheery Lynn Dies have such embossed details especially on leaves and flower dies, it makes such a huge difference and works so well on pearl card.

All dies used on this card are:


This week is your last chance to enter our monthly competition to win a Big Shot Die Cutter and as always we have a fabulous weekly prize of $20 to spend online in our store too. I hope you find time to join in this week, and dont forget there is always wonderful daily inspiration from the rest of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.

Your used of the pearls with all the dies & multiple layering is beatuifully effective & I love the way your butterly forms a 'v' for the heart.
