Fan-tastic birthday......

I've been a bad blogger again! It's a week since I last posted. I've been busy with new cards for a new set of workshops and just don't seem to have had time to put fingers to keys as it were!
Black and hot pink has to be one of my fave colour palettes to work with. I especially love the paper that I used on this card from the DCWV Street Lace 8x8 stack. There is also a fab lime green in the pack too. This card is a stepper card, made by adding a folded piece of card to a standard 6" square card- the extension piece is about 3" high. I covered the back of the card with black cardstock and added a piece of the hot pink paper cut slightly smaller to create a border all round. I punched one edge of a piece of black cardstock with an MS punch and adhered it to the front, shorter portion of the card with the punched edge protruding over the mountain fold. I added a piece of black patterned paper wrapped with hot pink satin ribbon. The fan was cut from pink mirri card and black lace-effect patterned paper. I added a piece of black lace, giving the fan a Spanish feel. I cut a flourish from black glitter card, adhered it across the fan, then adhered a large pink bloom and some smaller punched flowers with pearl centres. Another flourish corner was cut from black glittercard along with a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, and both were adhered flat to the back portion of the card. A smattering of pearls completes the card.
Carts used:
Fan- Pagoda
Flourish on fan- Home Decor
Corner flourish- Heritage
Happy Birthday- Wild Card
Thanks for dropping by!
