Challenge Card for Just Us Girls


I made this card for a new challenge blog I recently found through Mona at Cupcake Creations. I even like the name of it "Just Us Girls" challenge. This weeks challenge is to add a 3D flower to your project. This is a card my friend Michelle asked me to make for her (multitasking) ha ha. I made my flower out of vellum on my Cricut. I get these amazing vellum colors from PaperandMore. I put seed beads in the center. I used Apricot Appeal, and the patterned paper is from Memory Boutique. I used the Martha Stewart lace punch on the bottom, and this is a
5 x 7 card. And I found the velvet ribbon on sale at JoAnns. I hope you like it
and thanks for looking. ~Diane

  1. BEAUTIFUL card Diane! I love that orange vellum 3-D flower. I have never tried to cut vellum with my Cricut-thanks for the inspiration as I will have to give this a try! Your friend is very lucky to receive such a beautiful card! Thanks for playing along with the 3-D flower challenge at Just Us Girls! I hope we see more of your creations in all the upcoming fun challenges that we have planned! Kristin is the hostess next week & has a lil' something to share with everyone who plays! :)
