Have a Beautiful Day.


I hope you are all having a good week.

I have just made finished this card that was inspired by a couple of challenges:

I have used some new to me, stamps and dies from Altnew.

I heat embossed the flower in copper then die cut it out. I then used water colour paints to colour it. I used a heat gun to dry this. I would normally add embellishments to a card like this but for some reason I like just as it is. No linen embossed base card either-so even more CAS than normal for me! But I really like the way it turned out.

I was inspired by the photo at the Altnew Inspiration March Inspiration. I took the inspiration from the colours of the skirts. Plus I think the many folds in these flowers mimic the folds of the skirts.

The layout was inspired by the new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch

I will also enter it into:

Enjoy the rest of your day x
