Lulupu DT Call


I made this for www.Lulupu.com's DT call. If you are a paper crafter in India and haven't heard about www.lulupu.com then you are seriously missing something.......it is a great place to shop for almost all international big brands in craft supplies.......do check it out....you can also participate in the DT call which ends on May 15th....the details can be found here.
This card is inspired by this card by Khushboo, who is DT member at Lulupu.
I've made it for my mum I do feel I have overdone this card a bit, I guess it could have done without a couple of elements....well never mind I hope my mum likes it (she is quite critical of my work!)
The chevron background is handmade, the tutorial can be found here.
I've rounded the corners of the card with this corner chomper available at lulupu.com, the chipboard alphas are colored with copics and covered with glossy accents also available at lulupu.com and so is the paper piercer used to pierce the edges of the card, the twine is from this pack. The flowers are made with giant rick rack (will share how to make these soon). The buttons and butterflies are from Pie Lane.
