Well its been quite awhile!

Hi folks.
It's been quite awhile since I've been posting at this time of day, but after an enforced absence I'm back with a new card for the new challenge at ATSM.
This week it is -


So we need to see some for of mark making as the focus of your project.
Here is my, sorry are my cards.

I made the first then decided to add some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, now I can't decide whether I made a mistake, what do you think?

My starting point was the image for May's Altenew challenge. I used their Extra Special flower spray and watercolor stripes cover die but embossed it instead of cutting with it to create the suggestion of a textured wall for my blooms to cascade across.
I used a no line technique, stamping in a pale ink before colouring with Copics and then fussy cutting out. I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Beautiful Day with black on a white card strip.

For more inspiration, please bob along to the ATSM blog for more DT inspiration.

I'm joining in over at:-



  1. Julie, this is simple but so elegant and I love the subtle background you made with the embossing. Truly gorgeous card! Hugs, Gwendolyn

  2. No, you've not made a mistake. I rather like the subtle shimmer of the sequins, like dew drops xx

  3. These are both gorgeous and I can't choose which one I like best either! Love the textured background, especially since you haven't used a smooth cardstock. And well done with the 'no-line' colouring, it looks incredible (something I'm to scared to try....). Its a fabulous card and I'm so glad you shared it with us at The Flower Challenge!

  4. Oh, it’s so beautiful, Julie. Love those delicate flowers and textured background you have created with embossed base and those pearls and sequins.

  5. Those blooms are gorgeous...stunning card!Thanks for playing along at The Paper Players!

  6. It's great to have you back Julie and you knocked it out of the ball park with this little beauty! Love the background impression and the flowers are gorgeous with or without the sequins. The card is such a great take on the inspiration photo too!
