Charmed Challenge at VDBC

Last week we had this awesome challenge at the VDBC.  I have been so busy I almost didn't make in time to post. Whoo! I finally got the chance to make this card and post it on the last day.

So here is the card I made. The challenge was to use a charm on our card , layout or project.  Well yall know me, So yep. I did a card. LOL!

I used a basket weave technique on the paper back ground. Then heat embosses with iridescent embossing powder, then a coat of clear embossing powder. It also helps to keep it together.

I used my file RM00051 "Easter Lily Card"    and matted on white cardstock, and used purple cardstock for the card.  I cut this file to fit this A2 Card.

And used a bunny charm on a jump ring.  Turns out , that is the only Easter related charm I had, So glad it all worked out, LOL

Here is a close up of the basket weave (I will have a tutorial and a free file for this in the next week)

And here is a close up of the little bunny charm that looks so cute on this card.

Also, Im hosting this weeks challenge at VDBC.  So if you want a chance to win one of my new files, be sure to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!
