Out of the Box Card Challenge

Our Alpha Beta Card group is meeting again tonight for our monthly crafty night and the theme this month was to make a card 'out of the box' from our normal style. Sorry, I used the red and black again like I use fairly often, but I added a copper shimmer which I don't normally use, so I hope that counts. My other challenge for the card was to make one with no butterflies since the majority of my cards tend to have them on them! lol :)

I used these gorgeous prima flowers that I got on clearance a while back. I've kinda been stumped as to what to do with them, and thought I break into them for this card for something different. Please excuse the poor pics, it took forever to get a somewhat decent pic, since between the shimmer cardstock, the shiny brads, the copper cord and the metallic flowers, the camera was having a hard time focusing on one thing! I think it went into overload! lol :)

Here's a close up of the metallic prima flowers. Aren't they pretty? :)

Well, it's nearly as hot today as it's been the past several days, but at least today we have a breeze which seems to be saving us. The girls and I spent the morning in our pool, now I'm seeking refuge in my craft studio in our basement which is a lot cooler than upstairs.

I have one more post to show you, stay tuned...

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
