This was a card that I made for one of my recent classes. I've used some of my favourite colours and techniques. I love the combination of pumpkin pie and rose red - there's something about it that just works so well. i used these two colours, along with some daffodit delight to shade a piece of very vanilla card - before I roughly stamped my flowers. i could have used my stamp-a-ma- jig to line them up accurately - but somehow I don't think it matters with this particular set. I finished off the card with a butterfly from the beautiful wings embosslits folder (usinf paper form the Sweet n' Sour DSP) and a couple of rinestones.
It was only then that I thought of adding a greeting! So I quickly matched up a piece of card and stamped a greeting which was punched with the modern label punch. It's not quite where I would have placed it - but I think it works OK.
Anyway I will be back in a few days with another card that I've made. I can't wait to show you the card I made for my new nephew - but I can't post it yet in case his mum sees it before it arrives!
