I used the colours that Gayatri picked for the Winnie & Walter WCMD Colour Challenge and the layout is based on the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#157. I love the colours, they are really soft and feminine, perfect for my Mum's birthday card. I stamped the solid rose images in pink and peach and then over stamped the outline rose in Versamark, heat embossed with gold powder and cut them out. I adhered the peach rose flat to the card and used dimensional gel for the two pink roses. I created the panel by adhering some vellum onto gold card. I added a gold ribbon and finished the front with a simple birthday sentiment. After fussy cutting the sentiment I used dimensional tape to attach it to the front. On the inside I cut another gold mat and on the white card added a simple, but heartfelt message. I created a subtle shadow on the word Mum by stamping twice - in pink and peach. Also below is another view of the front of the card - this time you can see the dimension.
Now to get this in an envelope and head off to the post office so that it gets to Mum in time. I know that I'm perfectly safe sharing this card here, as my Mum (love her) knows nothing about computers and the Internet!! Before I go - here a photo of the tree in front of our house - it's suddenly gone a wonderful shade of red and is positively glowing in the sun!
See you soon! Bye for now.
