Scrapping4fun Grand Prize Winners challenge

Update: voting is now over. Unfortunately, I accidentally deleted my original blogpost and had to get a cached version and copy to this new post. I could have just left it, but wanted my card to be on the record of my blog.

This is my card for the Grand Prize Winners Challenge on Scrapping4fun - I qualified to take part in this because I won challenge 26.

We were given this sketch:

For my card I turned the sketch to the right and used an 8 x 8 card blank as the base.

For the bottom piece I sprayed white card with a mix of broken china and shabby shutters distress inks. The top piece of card was run through my eBosser using the vintage vine embossing folder, which was then distressed with stazon teal blue. The square with rounded corners is an offcut from an old Docrafts kit. I used a Nellie Snellen die to cut a scalloped circle with lacy holes using a piece of card that had been coloured with the distress inks that I'd used for the bottom piece of the card, stamped with a Funstamps paisley background which had been inked with stazon black. This was then matted on to a doily, edged with stazon teal blue. The top die cut in a nestie stamped with the paisley background inked with stazon teal blue. I used this to colour the piece of ribbon across the middle (it was originally cream). I used reminders of the embossed card to cut the Die-namics fishtail flags, adding flowers and sentiment panel from Hobbycraft.

If you like my card I would appreciate your vote.
