This is a birthday card I've created for a friend. I don't very often do monochromatic cards but I decided to give one a try. The background is a piece of felt I found ages ago on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It was already embossed. I sewed it onto a card made of Orchid Opulence (SU). The sentiment, including the silver bookplate is also by Stampin Up. The large lavender band I cut from a catalog cover and punched with a Martha Stewart lace edge punch. The clear buttons are from Close to My Heart. The ribbon is a Target find.
The paper flower I made by punching scallop circles from catalog pages in various shades of purple. The pearl brad is a Paper Studio, I think.
I will be entering this card in the 1-2-3 Challenge over at the Shabby Tea Room. You have to use 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 punches. I have on this card the mauve ribbon, the 2 clear buttons, and I used a lace punch, a scallop punch and the punch for the sentiment.
Thanks for the visit and happy stampin. Comments appreciated.
