Birthday Wishes

Today I have 2 cards for you that suit 3 challenges:

This first card is for The Card Concept where I was inspired by the size of the flower and iI used a flower and leaves that I’ve had roughly water coloured in my stash for some time just waiting to be used. The stamp set was borrowed from a friend and I can’t remember which company it’s from but the sentiment is from a set by Altenew called ‘birthday greetings’. I love how the purple and green complement each other and I added a bit of gold thread for some balance at the top of the card.

This next card is for both the CAS colors sketch challenge and the Flower Challenge. I used an acetate from panel for my card and attached some stamped and die cut hibiscus flowers and leaves based on the sketch. The sentiment is the same as used on the first card.

You can see the acetate front panel better in this next photo.IMG_4948

I love how both these cards came out and I think I’ll use acetate for my front panels a bit more as it gives a great effect.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

  1. Wow! Great use of acetate as the front panel. And the colors you’ve applied for the florals are beautiful. Thanks for playing with us at CAS Colours & Sketches. Hope we can see your creative projects soon.
