City Crafter Challenge #52:PPA 89

I recently found a wonderful challenge blog called City Crafter Challenge. They have some amazing projects and inspirtation. They are celebrating their first birthday this week. This challenge is to make a birthday card by casing elements from Sylvia Nelson's card. Her card was shaped like a 3 tiered cake and had several little paper flowers and some bling. Well you know me and paper flowers....I just had to join in.

I am also entering this card in Pals Paper Art Challenge #89 and Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #150.


The card below is Sylvia's.


The cake tiers made me think of a step card. The paper I chose had pink roses on it so of coarse I had to make lots of little paper roses.



I used Penny Duncan's rose file again. I cut each flower a little smaller and did not use all of the pieces for the rose buds. I added the leaves and calyx (that little green thing around the rose bud in the picture above) Then I used my simple daisy shape flower and cut 2 at around a half inch for each of the little pearl centered flowers.

Are you ready for the BEST part???
All of the paper on this card except the rose patterned paper started off as white card stock!
No kidding! I inked all of it with TH Distress inks!
(Spun Sugar, Crushed Velvet, Bundled Sage, and Forest Moss)
It took a long time but I really love the effect.

Well, I have given most of these cut files out before, but here are the SVGs again. (except for Penny's rose file which you can get here...THANKS PENNY!!!)
I am also including the branch with leaves that I have used of several of my recent projects. (It is still not perfect but it works.)

If you need a different type of file you can look through my "files" list or email me at papercompulsions@gmail.com




(this file only makes sense when you put it on a step card)
