... hi all - this is another of my scheduled posts. I'm sharing another birthday card made using the layout from the current Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL167 and colours from a previous CR84FN challenge - the bright, zingy colours from CR84FN34.
This birthday card is for Anne - another of the St Luke's Design Team. Anne - Happy Birthday - have a super day!! It's really weird - all our birthdays are in November/December and June!! It's been so dull and grey, that I had to make a bright, cheerful card (that's why I went back to these lovely CR84FN colours).
I started off by stamping the single agapanthus flower randomly on the base card. I used my nestie to cut the base mat in pale yellow pearly card, and I threaded pink and yellow ribbon through the holes - I like this effect. The agapanthus cluster was stamped in deep pink onto plain white card, and I used the out-of-the box technique to cut it out with my circle nestie, and then attached it to the yellow mat. I stamped the Flowerfly onto white card and painted with my aqua brush, adding some sparkle once I'd cut it out. Before attaching the butterfly, I made some pink wire antennae! Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto plain card and used a Fancy Tag to cut it out, added a bit colour to define the label.
