WATERCOOLER WEDNESDAY CHALLENGES - WWC126 - FIONA'S FEMININE "ANYTHING GOES"

                 WWC126 - Fiona's Feminine Challenge
http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/2017/07/wwc126-fionas-feminine-anything-goes.html

 
Have a good look at the new banner.   It is in black and white and still includes the namesake Watercooler.  It is really cool and refreshing.    Also take a look on the right margin for changes to the weekly challenges. 
 
Fiona is the Hostess leading the way with her beautifully crafted Feminine card.   Check out the other Team Artists as well.    Again, they inspire us with their creations!
 
 
For my card, I have used Dragonfly Dreams.   I really  love the stamp set and dies.    I kept to the colors from the Spring Catalogue as it reflected a "Feminine" look for the challenge.   I embossed the sentiment in Gold on a band of Vellum and then mounted the vellum onto Detailed Floral Die cut.   This was then mounted onto the DSP "Falling in love".   
Unfortunately there was a lot of glare bouncing off the gold embossing for a good picture view.

  1. Wow, Heather! You've pulled out all the stops for this card, haven't you? What a beautiful, elegant, and exquisitely created feminine card! I love those pinks, whites, and greys combined with the touches of gold. The irridescent ice on the wings of the dragonfly really adds to the overall delicately feminine design. From the wonderful background designer paper to the die-cuts to the creative heat-embossing, this is a real keepsake. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. Welcome back Heather and thanks for taking our challenge this week at the Watercooler. You've created such a beautiful soft and romantically feminine card with your elegant vellum winged dragonfly. Adding the floral die cut just adds to the whole look of femininity. Thanks so much for sharing!
