Scrapbook page and Card for a challenge

OK - so here is a wonderful scrapbook page I have done for our family photo - when we get the photo taken that is! But, once we do, I have got the layout done at least! So half way there!

This lovely layout is done using a sheet of bashful blue DSP and not quite navy and old olive CS for the photo mat. I stamped the large swirl from Baroque Motifs in not quite navy straight onto the patterned paper. This adds some nice patterned detail, and looks eyecatching when done on DSP. I used some of the deliscious wide striped old olive ribbon along the bottom.

The flower stems are just super thin strips of old olive cardstock that I have twisted and twisted and twisted. I glued them down using some tombow. The leaves are from the 5-petal flower punch - I just trimmed them off to create a leaf.

The flowers are punched with the boho blossoms punch and then inked with some not quite navy ink and adhered. Finished it off with some buttons, and a stamped and punched butterfly from flight of the butterfly.

Now, for a special twist, I have done this card based on one of the ILWS Design Team challenges and the above scrapbook page.

Same basic idea as the above scrapbook page, however for the ILWS challenge of "two brads, two buttons and ONE stamped image" I used two of the wonderful filligree brads as flowers. One of the buttons is actually a clear button with a rub-on transfer flower on it.

I LOVE this, Karin! What a fantastic way to add detail to the DSP. I think the way you have done the stems is so clever!
