Pat-a-Cake - Papercraft Star

Good morning! Today is the day challenge 45 begins at Papercraft Star! The challenge this week is to create a project using this photograph as your inspiration that includes at least one die cut or stamped image, a metal element or button, and two different kinds of patterned papers.

I chose to create a card for this challenge using the colors and stripes in the photo as my inspiration. I included a stamped image, metal element, button and two different patterned papers.

To the card I added one of my crocheted flowers and a handmade butterfly embellishment out of a paper clip and a Prima flower. To add some interest and to balance the metal on my card, I heat embossed my stamped images with silver embossing powder.

You have from today until 9:00 pm EST on Sunday to submit your entries for this challenge and then voting will begin! I look forward to seeing your entries! Remember to join Papercraft Star everyday throughout the week for tutorials and more inspiration!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
