Birthday wishes

Well, I thought I was too busy to make a card today and then I saw the colours for this weeks curtain call colour challenge #46 and my fingers were just itching to have a go, so here we are!





I loved the colours of the poppies against the white, so I used lots of white layers on this card to give it interest while still maintaining the mainly white background. I used the fabulous sweet sunday sketch SSSC84 to help me.



I am really enjoying using all the great colour combos and sketches. I'm finding they are definitely helping me to stay out of the rut of using my favourite layouts and colours again and again. The sketch this week led me to use lots of layers instead of a plain white card blank. I'm not sure if this photo shows it, but I used a tonne of dimensionals on this card!



Supplies:

Stamps - PTI beautiful blooms II, turning a new leaf, round & round
Inks - PTI sweet blush, melon berry, pure poppy, American Crafts leaf
Card - PTI sweet blush
Cuttlebug embossing folder
PTI scallop die

This is a beautiful card, layered so nicely. It has such good texture with the embossing folder dots and you did such a good job cutting out those leaves.

The arrangement of your flowers is wondeful. This looks great on a white-on-white background.

This is totally gorgeous! I just love these stamps, and the way you've positioned them around the leaves really leads the eye across the card. Beautiful use of the white background and dimensionals! Thanks for playing this week!
