Thanks with colorful flowers

Today I have a card for the HLS September Sketch Challenge and Virginia's View Challenge.
As I saw the sketch of the Happy Little Stampers on Gloria's blog, it reminded me of traditional korean windows with wooden lattice. And I decided to try to make a card for the challenge.

At first I made a cutting file using the sketch as it is for the look of an wooden lattice, cut it with Cricut three times in white cardstock and cut once in kraft cardstock.  I stamped woodgrain pattern on the kraft lattice in brown. The sentiment is stamped on the card base in black and clear heat embossed. I adhered the lattice in layer for some dimension on the card base. I then punched flowers out of a cardstock which I colored using colored pencils, curled up the petals and glued them on the card as shown in the picture. I chose orange instead of green from the sketch at HLS. I added glossy accents on the center of the  flowers for some shine :).

I missed white korean traditional paper with subtle texture and stamps in korean. It would have been great if I could use some of them.
Here is the card.

  3. 너무 이뻐요^^
    크리컷으로 커팅하셨나봐요. 저는 크리컷이 없어 잘 모르겠지만 굉장히 공들여서 커팅하셨다는 생각이 드네요.
    제 카드를 보고 만드셨다니 너무 기분이 좋네요^^
    태은님은 영어를 잘하셔서 너무 부러워요.
    저도 길게 설명해서 쓰고 싶은데, 영어가 짧아서 힘드네요 ㅎㅎ
    아참, CASology 에서 HM 되신것 너무 축하드려요!!
    앞으로도 챌린지에서 좋은결과 많이 있으시면 좋겠어요^^

  4. 이렇게 많은 칭찬을 한꺼번에 듣다니! 감사합니다^^ ! 다이들이 너무 비싸서 애초에 크리컷을 샀어요. 자유롭게 자를 수 있는 건 정말 좋은데 잘린 모양은 다이가 훨씬 예뻐서 다이가 자꾸 사고 싶어져요. 영어는 저도 힘들어요. 주로 밤에 카드를 만들고 글을 쓰는데 포스트 하나가 두 세 시간 걸려서 요즘 수면 부족이랍니다ㅠㅠ.
