Birthday Card

Card with Aqua,Orange and Brown 

I always loved handmade cards, and recently I have gotten into mix-media cards...
Though i don't know how accurate it is to call this one mix-media card in proper term, but i just loved the different different elements put together to achieve a complete look.....

It's Fusion card challenge time again....
I used both for this card.... inspiration color picture as well as sketch.

I know I have added too many
I have used bronze printed vellum paper, distressed with  walnut stain on all 4 sides as my base.
Then comes satin lace, on which I applied gesso for the matt look and pasted it on dark brown corrugated paper strip.
Then I used my favorite "Vintage Resin Lady Cameo" that also in holographic teal color, that's why it has a rainbow shine. Traditionally a woman's profile carved out of white shell against a coral background is the real Cameo,used all over the world in jewelry. But for crafting, now u get various options.....and I just so love them. 
Anyway.... I layered my teal Cameo lady on mdf frame and then on teal felt dollie, and on it goes on my card along with the mdf sentiment.

I colored my die cut flowers with squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick distress stain, added sequence glitter to to make the center.  Leaves with tumbled glass, peacock feathers and mowed lawn distress stain. Flourishes with squeezed lemonade and mowed lawn distress stain. And on white flourish added pearls after applying gesso. Made small butterflies with "Martha Stewart's monarch butterfly" punch, colored them with spiced marmalade and picked raspberry distress stain. Stuck two layers together for the winged look and added sequence glitter at the center.
Assembled them together to make a nice bunch, in accordance to the sketch.

And my card is ready for the submission !!!!

Hope you all like my new venture in mix-media card making.....please do leave me your valuable suggestions, which can help me do better.....I really do appreciate them.
