Black n White +1 Other Colour

Morning all and welcome to my second Guest DT blogging for Crafty Catz! Yay, here we are with very delicious sounding challenge, # 229 and it is 
Black n White +1 Other Colour
We have TWO sponsors this week, hehee, I say "we", because it is so nice to be a GDT with other ladies/girls/catz at Crafty CatzGenerous sponsors are: 

Delicious Doodles is offering 4 images of winner's choice

MeiFlower is offering either £20 worth of goodies or £20 voucher to spend in their online store
(remember to check details from their blog)

Now photo alert! I blogged about a hundred photos because of so many details I needed and loved to share with you. Here we go:

The digi stamps are from Delicious Doodles and they are Blossom  and Iris Flower.

Front when card is closed tied with orhid/purple satin ribbon and bow.


There are eyelets coloured using Flexmakers to get the same shade as ribbon. Background is distressed inked and smoothed with scissors. Foam double side tape raised embossed layer nicely up.

2 layers of Iris Flower, second layer cut by scissors! Then plenty of glossy accent and white snow glitter.

Inside again. Ribbon ends are hidden under the Iris Flower and secured with glue. Girl has no "make up", only printed using matching colour and layered it with background frame die cut. Left and right Iris Flowers are cut exactly to match the front to make it a full bunch. Not mirror image.

Because of the gap between layers I cut thin stripes and glued them on the lenght of the flower bunch.

That's it! Easy and simple. Final touch are flat back pearls on each corner. 

What did I need:

Cardstock purple, black and white - Papermill Direct
Digi stamps - Delicious Doodles.
Die cuts - Sizzix Framelits
(the bigger ones I had to draw and cut)
20x4mm and 24x3mm white flat back pearls - stash
Ribbon and eyelets - stash
Ranger Glossy Accent
Art Deco Snow Glitter
