My card is for Bev, our fabulous boss! It was Bev's birthday yesterday so Sandie (who does a brilliant job coordinating our challenges) decided to use this challenge as our way of wishing Bev the most wonderful birthday. Hopefully this will come as a complete surprise. Here's my card:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Beautiful Blooms II, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Secret Admirer; Kaisercraft Embellishments - Secret Admirer; Crafter's Companion Spray 'n' Sparkle - Gold
I used the sketch from this week's FUSION challenge - FUSION#34. I covered the bottom half of the card with lovely floral paper. I adhered a matching doily to the side of the card and then stamped the birthday sentiment. I lightly sprayed the card with some gold sparkle spray. I stamped the outline flower in coral, added the solid inside with a pale coral and added the detail with dark pink. I stamped the blossom three times and fussy cut them all. I decided to adhered the flowers together to make a thicker flower which I attached to the card with dimensional gel. On the inside I used another sheet of design paper for the mat layer and stamped a greeting and flower on the white panel.
I know that the team have all made some wonderful cards, so do drop by and leave some a comment or two.
We have a couple of Guest Designers this month - Carol and Jane. Do drop by their blogs to check out their cards. Don't forget to visit the rest of the team too to see what they've made.
There are lots of prizes too - the DT will choose a winner who will get a £20 gift voucher for Uniko Studio shop and will be invited to be a Guest Designer. The DT will also pick a top 3 and all will get a £5 gift voucher. If you do use a Uniko stamp we will do a random selected prize to win a £10 gift voucher.
Sadly, Bev probably won't get this card for a while - I was a bit late posting it - I still forget how long it takes letters and cards to get from the States to the UK!!! That's all for now!
