Dare to Get Dirty Flourished Floral


Here is another card that I made for one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over on Splitcoast. This is for Genie1314's sketch from the first day.

This card was so easy...it almost felt like cheating while I was making it. I had an awesome sketch to work with and then I had an awesome new find to play with. That find being Penny Black stickers. The floral image, the striped piece on the bottom, and the long white flourished piece on the side is all a sticker. I'm going to have to go back and acquire a few more.

Archivers has beautiful shimmery colored cardstock (like SU's shimmery white, except colored). The colors used for this card are Antique Gold, Bronze Jewel, and Ruby Jewel. Does anyone know where one can purchase packs of this stuff? The company who makes it is 'The Paper Company'. I also used SU Rose Red for some of the panels to brighten things up. The sticker images are finished off with some Crystal and Goldenrod stickles for a little shimmer. A beautiful aged copper decorative brad finishes of the card.
