More Cards

I have two more cards to add - I've changed my mind on the colour card that I chose, I'm going to use the pink card with the photos on - for the photo challenge, and this one is going to be for the colour challenge:
It's mauve and I tried to create one of my favourite flowers - the hydrangea. I just love how they change colours depending where you plant them, and all those tiny flowers! Yep I pull the faux ones apart and use them in scrapping all the time. But back to the card. I dug out my old punches last night - yep didn't think they would still work, but bless their hearts they did a good job! I punched 41 flowers in the large size and then 41 flowers in the small size (Carl Punches), then bent each petal up using tweezers (yes it got a little fiddly!) I attached them to the card with sticky dots, and then added some tiny bling dots. Then I found the perfect corner stamps and voila! Here's a different view:

You can see how they are all raised up from the card. Note: I lightly drew around a chipboard heart, directly onto the card and used that as my guide for where to place my flowers.

My next card is for the faux stitching part of the challenge - I stitched the felt bunny (based on a bunny on one of Sophia's shirts) with my sewing machine, but the tiny brown blanket stitch around the bunny's shirt/dress is faux stitching:

The eyes and nose are brads, the dress/shirt is paper, the cupcake is paper also, backed with 3D foam tape, the black lines I doodled myself and the "hello cupcake" is a stamp - I also stamped another cupcake inside. You can't quite see but the star on the cupcake is Stickled.
