My Friend

Just getting my card making fix in for today after celebrating my Mum's 80th Birthday.

I am playing along with the challenge at ColourQ to use the colours Kraft, Pool Party, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride and White.

I used the Watercolor Wash stamp for the background.  I inked it up with Pool Party, misted it with water and then stamped it onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  This I adhered onto a mat of Melon Mambo and then adhered this to the cardbase.

Do you like the pink leaves?  I sponged Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and then cut out the leaves using the Botanical Builder Framelits.  The flower was made using the same Framelits, cutting the flower from Shimmery White cardstock and the flower centre from the same piece that I cut the leaves from.  An Iced Rhinestone was added to the flower centre.

I looped some of the Silver Metallic Thread behind the leaves and flowers and added some silver sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment for a bit of bling.  The sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set.

Thank you for visiting.
