Saturday 2 July 2011


Today I'd like to share a card that I made for my daughter for her prom...this is the first prom, she is having another prom in a fortnight....two proms because as she was going into year 11 at her old school they closed the school down and moved all the pupils to another school....quite upsetting for their last year but they have decided to still have the prom for the old school....and a bit of a reunion....hence two proms, one for each school.

I decided to have another go at an easel card and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
I managed to find the same shade of green as her dress. The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp called Willow With Champagne....which was perfect for this card. The papers are a mixture from my scraps box. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and some Nestability dies. I've then finished off with gems, Stickles, a couple of pins and some punched dragonflies.

Sorry the photos aren't great. Hope to post a few pictures of her in her dress tomorrow.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Divas By Design Challenge ~ # 5 ~ Die Cuts and Punches
I Love Promarkers Challenge  ~ # 72 ~ Include Flowers
