I found this beautiful cd folder whilst on my tintynet travels.
The design inspired me to make this card for my Moms birthday this coming Saturday...

I've used Echo Park 'abundance' digi papers, I colour changed the houndstooth paper to blue as I wanted to back it to the floral patterned paper for the fold over, and blue looked better than orange because I wanted to use these pretty blue papermania material flowers.
I used 3 flower petals for each bloom and secured them with metal spacer beads and a brad. I arranged them with ivory mulberry roses and kraft punched leaves (woodware ash punch).
I paper pricked all around then dragged a white gel pen along the holes for some faux stitching.
I glued a crystal gem to another larger brad to secure the folded part.
'mom' is cut using dienamics 'by the letter' dies.

I'd like to enter this card at:
