.... Hi all - it's been another gorgeous day here in Northville and it looks like staying for a while. I've made a birthday card for one of my friends in the UK. I was having a really hard time thinking what to make - my mojo seems to have decided to take a holiday all of its own!!! However, when I saw the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc154 challenge I knew what I wanted to do. I used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC114 (designed by Anya Schrier) for the layout.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Asian Garden
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, Calypso Carol (substitute for Cameo Coral)
Spellbinders: Lacey Circles (S4-293) #5
Accessories: SU Ribbon (Old Olive); Dreamweaver Stencil LL3024, Card from stash
I really like this set, but for some reason don't use it very often, however it goes perfectly with this big sakura stencil. I used So Saffron for the background pattern and wrapped ribbon around it before attaching to the card base. I ran both the stencil and Spellbinder die through my bug and while the stencil was in place I inked the centre of the flower and used coral round the edge. Next I stamped lots of little sakura flowers and cut them out. I finished off with a simple birthday sentiment.
That's all for now. See you soon.
