Cream on Cream

A cream card made today with a few current challenges in mind.  (It's cream IRL, although it looks almost white in the photo.) 

I started with a 5" square cream card blank, which I covered with a piece of cream linen card. I used one of the MB 'Distressed Baptisia Collage' dies to die cut the geometric corner design from a piece of the same linen card, cut slightly smaller than the card blank.  This was attached with foam pads.  The butterfly is made from MB 'Pippi' and 'Isabella' die cuts, which I layered and attached with foam pads.  To finish my card, I die cut MB 'Alphabet Soup' letters to spell the sentiment.  The butterfly and sentiment are all from the same piece of cream linen card.  

The Allsorts Challenge is celebrating its 8th Birthday this week, so I hope you can join in the fun and enter a birthday card in the challenge.  The link is on my sidebar.

This is lovely. The geometric corner really adds another dimension to your card. Very effective and pretty textured paper too.
