I nearly ran out of time to join in the Color Challenge over at The Card Concept, luckily today I had some time to be creative as the linky ends tomorrow! That was close! I love Halloween colors, but I opted to think outside the box and create a birthday card instead. I would think this card qualifies for Clean and Layered!
I was also inspired by this card by Erin @ Erin taylor Designs. Isn’t it GORGEOUS? I have been eyeing this card for months now and finally did something about it! I also tried my hand at sketching with a black pen around my stamped images and I say for the first time I did okay! The flowers and leaves are from SU-Stippled Blossoms and the butterflies are from the SU- Papillon Potpourri. The sentiment is something I picked up at Michaels eons ago. I put a piece of Washi tape on the backside of my vellum so that the word celebrate would be more visible. Heat embossed my sentiment and added some black hemp and some SU dots.
Hope you have a wonderful day and I appreciate you stopping by. Nanc’
