Uniko - Revisit and Blog Hop ....

... Good morning! Sorry I've not been around much - busy getting stuff sorted out for the new house. However, I did make time to get into my craft room to create a card for the Uniko Revisit Blog Hop. Bev has a new release every other month, and on the off-month, we revisit an older set.  This month Bev picked Pure Florals Cosmos.  I think this is such a pretty set and it's perfect for the birthday card I've made:

Stamps: Uniko - Pure Florals Cosmos
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! DP - Wild Wasabi; SU Card - Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi; Vellum; Gold and White Embossing Powder; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear

I've used the colours from Colour Throwdown - CTD#383 - so spring-like, and the layout is based on the sketch at Fusion - FUSION#50. I stamped the single flower repeated on vellum, heat embossed with gold tinsel powder and then cut them out.  I coloured the reverse of the flowers with Copic markers and added a touch of sparkle to the front with clear Wink of Stella. I used up some scraps of design paper and card to create the panel at the top.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.  On the inside I cut a panel of green card for the mat layer and on the white panel stamped the cosmos flowers and a greeting.

This is exactly the sort of card I could have made - well maybe in purples and pinks! Love the lined up flowers and the diagonal pattern of colours.
