I combined several challenges to make this clean, simple card:
- Colour Throwdown - CTD#374
- AAA Cards - AAA#55 - to add real glitter to your card
- Inkspirational - INK#99 - to make a thank you card with something new
- CASology - CAS#179 - cue word SIMPLE
I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller than the base and, using my MISTI to ensure everything was where I wanted it, stamped these pretty dandilions. I stamped the butterfly on a scrap of white card, cut it out with the matching die and coloured with Copic markers. I added sparkle to the wings with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I used a glue pen to dot around the dandilions and added real glitter. I attached the buttlerfly with dimensional tape and finished the front by running a Copic marker round the edge. On the inside I cut a mat layer of coral card and added another dandilion and butterfly, along with a greeting on the white panel.
I'm going to finish with a couple of videos - we woke to the news from Radio 2 that David Bowie had died. It was a real shock and I still can't quite believe it - he was amazing and I think my favourtie song is Life on Mars:
And Space Oddity:
The sounds from my teens. Rest in peace David and thank you for the music.
