I got this beautiful card from shirley chalmers and all the way from UK as I had commented in the post pay it forward. Remember that post where you had to post 5 handmade cards! Thats the one.Isn,t it beautiful!
This is a card I made with no ideas in mind. Just went on making it and the result was this. I tried several new things in this card. First I played with MS double border loop punch and created that square medallion behind those flowers on the left. I,ve used the Cuttlebug for the red embossed background. And yes! I tried to tear a bit from the backPP here and there to give it a different effect. Stamped some flourishes around the oval die cut and the stamp is Kassaz stamps . The butterflies are from Stampendous and I,ve tried wet embossing on them. And thanks to Shalini, who suggested that I use the toaster! instead of the heat tool which I burnt ( Thanks to My Foolishness). And believe me! there it is for you to see. It works! The flowers are made from small daisy punch.

A closer view.I,m entering this card for the following challenges.
