It's Keilly's first dare this week over at Daring Cardmakers and she has chosen this gorgeous inspiration photo. Use the colours from the photo and also include butterflies!
Now I love Hydrangea flowers, and decided I must make one for this card! I made it by cutting a polystyrene ball in half and stuck these little flowers that I die cut all over the ball. I've used pearls and ink for decoration. I've added some roses and lush velvet leaves, splattered with some paint for interest, and some coiled Core'dinations flourishes.
This lovely lace from the Ribbon Reel has been layered over some natural mesh, and this fab X-Cut border finishes it nicely. The butterflies are a digi image which I've chalk inked and layered for dimension.
