Silke *Day 2*

Here's our next STUNNING card by Silke.  I love how she embellishes all of her cards- always so perfectly balanced and pretty!

Silke's original post available HERE
And here's my take:

I began by inking the background, embossed using the Sizzix Gridlock embossing folder, with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The bottom portion of the card was also inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and also with Forest Moss Distress Ink.  The circle (behind sentiment) and leaves were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The butterfly and flower were created using patterned paper.  To create the flower, just trim patterned paper, score, accordian fold, glue the ends together, and fold down onto a circle covered with glue dots.  The sentiment panel was created by inking cardstock with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  This was then stamped with Penny Black 3859H Corner Piece using Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Sentiment by SRM stickers.

Oh, and here's a peek at what's happening on the Mementos blog today:

Gorgeous! Jill, did you only use 1/2 the rosette or is the other part of it behind?
You both are so talented and inspiring.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Katie! I only used half of the rosette. Once it was complete, I just cut it in half using scissors.
