I was at a bit of a loss when I came to make this card, so decided to rummage through some old calender pictures that I had on one end of my desk, and I found this image that I felt I could use - but how??
I then remembered the Midnight Madness sketch challenge and I was away.
The first layer of card is a pale limey lemon (not an official colour name, I know, but what else can I call it?) I sponged the edge of it in Whispers Mossy Stone ink, and kept it longer than the image to stamp and gold emboss the greeting on at the bottom.
Next layer was a nice bright red, which I doodled gold stitching around, then the lovely clear yellow. The ribbon is actually an olive green with gold edges, not grey, and then came the bright green card.
The feature of flower and leaves is made from sequins that I was recently given (as a thank you for 'cat sitting'), topped with a gold rhinestone. I am really pleased with this outcome, and thankful for that sketch challenge to get me going!
Thanks for calling by and commenting - I am really blessed when you do.
Have a great day! God bless.
