Blue Lotus Pendants

This is my second post for today, as I wont be able to do any crafting for a couple of days because I'm having both of my hands and fingers injected at hospital tomorrow.

I will be entering my card into the following challenges

First, Try Stampin' on Tuesday with this sketch,                                                  
These colours from Pals Paper Arts,

Less is More want us to use SCALLOPS

and lastly, Stampin' Royalty want to see        RIBBONS AND PEARLS

This is my card

I randomly stamped a flower in blue on a square of green card, and then I used a scallop border punch around the edges. I wrapped this with a blue ribbon and bow. I then used the Big Shot to cut two Lotus pendants in blue, and the light blue one was cut in half and stuck together again to make an oblong shape

A rosette was stamped in green, cut out and raised on 3D pads, and a 2 layer flower (also on 3D pads) added in the centre.  The sentiment was stamped under the pendants and pearls added as a highlight and as stamens in the flower.

Supplies :
Card = Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Naturals White, Teal and White base FMS
Stamps = Everything Eleanor and Verve
Inks = Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Bermuda Bay
Tools = Big Shot, SB Lotus Pendant, and Martha Stewart punch
Extras = 3D pads, ribbon, and Pearls  

Have a great weekend and I'll be back soon
