I used a few challenges to make this card and they are:
- The Ribbon Reel Challenge - RR51 - feeling blue
- CASology - CAS40 - cue word "WORD"
- Just Us Girls - JUGS184 - to use the ombre technique
I love the fresh cool colours from the Ribbon Reel challenge and I enjoy creating graduated shades too, and I have the perfect BIG word to show off the graduated shades of blue. I used three blue promarkers to create the ombre effect and stamped the word directly onto the paper, and the cut out each letter. I cut a panel of green card for the mount and stamped the word "thanks" again directly onto the white panel and then glued on the cut out letters. I stamped the "for all you do" directly onto the card and added some cream chiffon ribbon around the white panel and a bow on top. I finished the front by adding a few tiny flowers coloured to match the mega word. For the inside I kept it perfectly simple with the phrase "what would I do without you?"
I'll be talking to Susie later today to find out how Mum is - I know it's a fairly straightforward procedure (indeed, Jonathan had it done in 2009) and that Mum will be fine.
That's all for now - do drop by later - I've a card to share for this month's Waltzingmouse Blog Party. See you then!
