... sometimes you just need a card to say thank you for being there. Well, I've made this card for my Aunt and Uncle - they live about five minutes from my Mum, and I'm more grateful than they know, that they are there for Mum. This will be especially important to me, when we go to the US next year.
I've used the sketch from this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC71 and the soft, pretty colours from the new Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC106.
I've used my all time favourite set from WM - Free Spirit. The set is aimed at teenage boys, but I often use it for general cards - the free form circles are great for backgrounds and the hibiscus flower is so pretty. I inked up the stamp with Versamark and then overlaid several shades of pink and yellow, once stamped I sprinkled on Kaleidoscope embossing powder which has a lovely sparkle once heated. I used my nesties to cut out the background and then added subtle colour to the border and mounted it onto a lacey square. The flowers were stamped twice and coloured with Promarkers, then cut out and layered. Finally, I added some ribbon and a sentiment label - thanks!
