AAA challenge #8

Hi everyone.

Back with a second post for the day, this time for the current challenge over at the AAA Challenge Blog.  The challenge this week is to CASE this beautiful card created by Vicki:




Here is what I have created:



I've done my sponging with Stormy Sky and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks, but that surely doesn't look like Shabby Shutters on the photo!!  - supposed to be a bright yellowish green colour, but it looks like a caramel sauce colour!!!! 
Used my new Tim Holtz Alterations Lattice die to cut a stensil for my sponging. 
I love this daisy stamp by Verve (VS-09-PJ016) and the leaves are also by Verve from the 'Bloom & Grow' set.  Fussy cut the daisy and mounted it on foam tape onto my card.  The leaf was die-cut with the corresponding die from the 'A CUT above DIES' range by Verve. 
Afrikaans sentiment says: 'Thank you very much'.
Wanted to add something red, as Vicky have on her card, so I opted for tiny red pearls as I don't have any enamel dots. (yet!!  Hope to have some shortly!!!)
Not my normal kind of layered style, but I do like how it turned out.

Will do my Mojo Monday post tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting!!  Always a pleasure to have you here!!!

Kind regards
Petra

This is lovely Petra. Looks like the flower is popping its head through the trellis.

Pragtig Petra. Hou van die latwerk streep met die "distress inks" en die tikkie rooi rond die kaartjie so mooi af.
