The Card Concept Challenge # 194 - Spring Banquet

Hello my stampy friends!

It is time for a new challenge to start here at the 


Here is our lovely challenge photo: 

The pretty pastels, silver and flowers inspired me to create my 
Mixed Media  "Feel" style card:

*2 or more mediums 
(inks, embossing powder, pencils, pastels, watercolor, charcoal, pigments, etc.)
*May include dimensionals (embossing paste, gesso, fabric, papers, foil)
*May include heated elements
*Can be a variety of styles (CAS, Graphic, Shabby Chic, Grunge)
*Basically use 2 or more mediums qualifies as Mixed Media

I feel that I was able to create those elements simply by using this gorgeous paper collection from 49 and Market called Vintage Artistry Tranquility!

Here is my card:

I fussy cut the flowers and butterflies from a page in the collection. I glued them strategically on another piece of beautiful paper from this collection. I made some layers behind the focal panel, including a layer of silver foil paper. Added some embellies, and it was done! And so pretty! I just love this paper collection!!!!
