Papercrafter's Corner #109

PaperCrafter's Corner contest week 109! Doesn't this cover just speak volumes to the hours spent in the sun with your girlfriends? Well I decided to create a card. I just love the big orange umbrella and the fact that they are playing cards. I used to play cards with my best friend for hours!
I cut my card and matt out of My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus "Birthday Girl" then cut circles out of coffee filters and inked them with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade. I crumpled them up then sprinkled water on them and massaged the ink into the filters. I set each one out to dry while I inked the edges of card and matt with same ink. I then attached decorative natural trim to each end of the mat to mimic the fringe on the edges of the umbrella. Once the filters were dry I attached Tim Holtz Flashcards "Elements" to the larger filter flower and on top of this another Prima Flowers orange flower. The whimsical fresh clean look is refreshing! Don't you think?
