You are Terrific

Hello there crafting friends,

Just to let you know you are all terrific!

Goodness me, watercolouring, embossing, die cutting...lots of detail for me but I just loved making it! Plus a square card...very unusal for me and you would laugh if you saw me trying to cut the base card for this!!

All these stamps and dies are from CAS-ual Fridays-Pretty Posies. A new to me set but as soon as I saw the latest 'Friendship' challenge at CAS-ual Firdays I knew I had to break into them.

I had a hunt around my left over water colour stash and found some colours that fitted the Encouragement Challenge at CAS-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs photo. I went for the yellow and green mix that you can see in my water colour card and popped my circle up by using a thick piece of foam pad so it is floating like the balloon. The purple flower is also popped up so this card will have to be given by hand rather than posted!

The flowers and leaf were heat embossed in white and then die cut. The same with the sentiment.

The sun ray background card is from Birthday stash from Lynn (love this Lynn-thank you)

This card took me a long time to make for me but I have to say I am very happy with it and hope the recipient will be too!

I will enter it into:
