Neon Bright – Paper piecing

Hi all. Here is the card for today that I made using techniques which I seldom use often.

This week @ 365 cards we need to create a card which is frame-able – i.e Create a card (a work of art) that you would consider worthy of framing and hanging on the wall. Do join the fun @ 365 cards this week. This is completely subjective, so it’s totally up to you.

Coming to my take on the challenge, I thought of birds perched on tree, coloured subjects but din’t trigger the idea for a such a card. Then I was surfing through the challenges when I came across Pinspired Challenge #9“. And their inspiration photo (below) immediately stemmed a  flower inside my mind.

How I made the card?
I hand-sketched flowers of different sizes on pink and orange neon papers, which I had cut in layers (paper piecing) to make the big flower. I simply stamped the background with birthday song lyrics, polkadots, leaves and added crystals around the flower. I had inked the edges of the base with distress ink and then teased the edges a bit, which added depth to the border.

I am submitting this card for the following challenges.
Hope you liked my card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.

Update
This card is the Pinspired challenge # 9 runner up here.
