Thank you 365 cards, in black,red & off white/cream

Well, 365 cards reached the end of the first year. 365 days and cards are behind (not that I made even half of it... LOL), and I'm looking forward to the next 365 cards Pam and the great DT will create.
Thank you Pam, and the DT members, for challenging our abillities , sometimes out of our comfort zone (actually - always out of it...). I got to know this challenge blog some time after I started making cards, and for some months I could even catch up with the challenges. But even lately, when I craft much less, I still come to look from time to time, ane whenever I can, I join the fun.#
and for the last day, the 365 day, Pam gave this sketch. and here is my take on this sketch. I took some liberties, but I'm not the only one... the minute I saw this sketch, I just knew I want the flourishes on the left corner.
Since I just finished the pink vintage family card, I was in this vintage style mood, so I went on with it.
I decided on easle card because it is so elegant and different. a tutorial is here.
I distressed the off white cs and inked it with brown ink. adhered red tiny pearls on the flourishes, which are clear dollar set I've won. I used one of my dryer sheet flower, and adhered a red glittered rose to it and some green leaves underneath.
I added a cream lace that gives a fancy edge to the card when closed, put a red button with twine in the center. the sentiment is a stamp I won long time ago.
I added two shining butterflies and two tiny red roses next to the sentiment.
I'm entering this card to the following challenges:
sketch - super sketchy sunday day 365 on 365 cards
different fold - #9 crafty ann's challenge
vintage with flowers - simon says
distressing +pearls + glitter (a touch on the flower) - #92 a spoon full of sugar

flowers - fttc55

lace/fibers - #42 gingersnap (the lace and the twine on the button)
ribbon & sparkle - #39 C.R.A.F.T.
dp +button + riboon - stamp something

Thank you once again for stopping by and looking at my card. have a warm cozy day.
I'm planning on a mini blog candy of my own to celebrate 1/2 year of my blog and almost 10,000 hits, so stay tuned and hop over to check...
באתר 365cards הסתיימה השנה הראשונה, 365 כרטיסים, והמדהים הוא שיש שם שתי נשים שאכן הכינו את כל האתגרים! האתגר ביום האחרון, היום ה-365, היה סקיצה. כשראיתי אותה מייד ידעתי שאשתמש בחותמת של המערבולת שזכיתי בה פעם. קישטתי בסיומת של המערבולות עם פנינים אדומות קטנטנות (שונאת להדביק אותן!), ובפינה הנגדית הדבקתי את אחד מפרחי נייר המייבש שלי, עליו הרכבתי גם פרח אדום נוצץ. משני הצדדים הדבקתי פרפרים מנצנצים, והוספתי מתחת סרט תחרה במראה ענתיק.
את הכרטיס הכנתי ככרטיס עומד (הנה הדרכה איך לעשות), כי יש לו מראה מאד אלגנטי ושונה.
לנייר האוף-וויט עשיתי טיפול של יישון, שכלל הפעם גם קצת שריפת קצוות (ניסיתי טיפונת, בפעם הבאה אולי אעיז יותר), הרטבת הנייר עם מגבון וגלגול ואח"כ יישון עם דיו חום). בפנים הדבקתי כפתור אדום עם חבל ואת המסר קישטתי עם שני פרחונים אדומים קטנטנים.
תודה שהקדשתם זמן להסתכל על הכרטיס שלי, ואולי גם להשאיר תגובה.
אני מתכננת בקרוב מיני בלוג קנדי לכבוד 1/2 שנה לבלוג שלי וכמעט 10,000 כניסות, אז תשארו בסביבה לקפוץ ולהתעניין :).
