Kristina Werner Colour Challenge # 42

Hi there,

had an extra day at home this week as my little munchkin was sick so in between cuddles with him I worked on this card. I figured it had to either go the baby way or flower way, and in the end I went with flowers. I started by playing with scraps of the colours, which are lovely, see the box below.

Through a punched hole on one scrap I could see the DSP flowers below, through it - so I decided to try that as part of the design.

In the end the card came together with minimal stamping and lots of punching, and of course there was some embossing and I used crystal effects to make the centres of the little flowers and shine up the little layered ones under the buttons (and attach the buttons at the same time).

You can see the other great entries in Kristina's colour challenge here.
