Card Patterns 69: You are my charming sunshine!

My take on this week's Card Patterns sketch:


I am in love with this card (yes, I am throwing modesty out of the window today!!). I loved the colors and every little detail... the stamped polka dots, the embossing, the teeny weeny pink squares that I cut and layered on the last circle, the embossed and cut vellum, the acetate, the hand cut swirls, the dimension... i love it all. And it took me a good 2+ hours to make it ;-)



The colors are inspired from an online site where I got this interesting color palette. And the whole card is inspired by the simply stunning 'embellished paper doilies' here. My only regret was that I didn't have a paper doily and I am not sure where I'll get them here... they are used in restaurants so I guess they should be there somewhere!

The Sunshine sticker was a gift from Tanja, the rhinestones from Radha, and the epoxy sticker & chipboard embellishment from Donna.

I love the fact that I have not used  single bit of patterned paper in this card ;-)

Till later...

Love that you've managed to complete it without patterned paper yet there is so much visual richness and detail. You've outdone yourself!
