I made this card for The Hot Spot's Natural Elements Challenge!
For the natural elements, I used white cotton paper, and the little white flower in the centre is carved from shell! (and some green leaf punch outs to represent nature too):
I punched out the leaves, arranged them on the cotton paper, as well as around the centre flower after I used a green ink pad to colour them. I also punched out a small flower shape, inked it with the same brown ink as I used for the card edge, and glued it on before glueing on the shell flower. As for the cotton paper, I wet and tore it to get that effect.
I inked the edges of the card with a brownish ink, glued on gold card stock, added a strip of stripy decorated brown paper and some pearls.
I must have had card makers block, since it took me about 2-3 days to finish up this card, hehehe.
