Kraftyhands March 2015 Challenge

Good morning everyone. I'm just off to The Range in Carmarthen where I'll be demoing some of the lovely new collections from Docrafts. I'll be in store from 10am until 4pm and would love to see you if you're in the area. I'll show you my samples tomorrow.

Today is the start of the March challenge at Kraftyhands. Thank you to those of you who joined in with the February challenge, the winners have been announced on the blog. This challenge is just for fun and the theme this month is 
"One for Mums"
I have made an 8"x 8" card using the Femme Fatale CD. The delicate floral papers and pretty, vintage images on this CD are just perfect for feminine cards.

I started by matting a rose and text covered paper onto pink card. I then made a doily using a Spellbinder's die and covering it with Frantage. I wrapped a length of wide satin cream ribbon around the layers before securing them to the card base.

The centre panel was made using the elements from one of the 6"x 6" Card Making Sets on the CD. I added a doily, some little flowers, pink half pearls and a stand of pearls.

I finished the card with a big satin bow and a few frantaged butterflies.
