Another Challenge

I saw some tall and thin cards in the store the other day and it got me thinking. I pretty much stick to the same size cards but I it might be fun to try something a bit different, so I gave it a try. I've also been wanting to join in over at Charisma Cardz so I ended up using their recipe (3 papers, 2 flowers, 1 ribbon) on a tall and thin card to enter the challenge. What do you think?

What I did... the base is light purple card stock, I cut the dark purple piece using the wavy attachment to my paper cutter and tied the ribbon around it. I punched the flowers from scraps of patterned paper, layered them, and added a button for the center. Then I punched the scalloped squares, inked the edges with light purple ink, and attached the flowers. Next I mounted the scalloped squares onto the card stock using foam squares for a 3D effect. Finally, I applied the rub on sentiment.

Have a fabulous day! GG
