I got to play with some of my new SU goodies on this card. I covered the card with design paper and added three strips of double sided tape. I added clear glitter to the tape and burnished well to give a subtle striped, shimmer section. I die cut a large panel in white card and stamped the bold sentiment in black and heat embossed it with clear powder. I attached the panel flat to the card. I stamped the solid flowers in two colours and cut them out with matching dies. I die cut the flower centres from green card, attached them to the flowers and added a touch of sparkle to the end of the stamens with a clear Wink of Stella brush. Finished the front by adding some gems to the flowers. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card, layered on some design paper and on the white panel finished the greeting and added some flowers.
I used the colours from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#172, although it might not be CAS enough! I've taken a photo of the three sparkly stripes as you can't really see them in the photo above.
Do visit Sassy Sketcharinos to check out more inspiration from the team and do join in, you've got plenty of time to play along. Have fun!
