I wanted to give the March color challenge at Hero Arts a try.
I started with a soft sky background & stamped the Leaf & Flower Background in Charcoal ink.
I also wanted to try the Letter Tile Techniqe Challenge, so I die cut this Savvy Stamps Frame Die from the coordinating charcoal designer paper, trimming off the sides and top to create the banner (I cut the dies from the center of the paper that is on my card base since the holes are all covered by the blue layer).
Next I layered on light blue paper and then finished with Die Cut Letters for a mother's day card. I attached charcoal cord to the center of my card with tape (that is covered by the *O* Banner) and then wrapped it around each side of the blue paper before taping on the back. I attached the entire panel to my card front with foam tape so the twine bumps don't show.
I attached the banner letters using foam tape and finished with twine bows at each end and coordinating flowers to frame the letters.
