24 August 2011



By a happy coincidence Embellish's embossed flowers colour trends challenge has overlapped with
Casual Fridays embossing challenge. So I used the colours and embossed flowers from Embellish and kept my design clean and simple for Casual Fridays!

I used my new spiral notebook page again for my focal point of a flower from Papertrey Ink's everyday classics stamped in cranberry pigment ink and then clear embossed. This was paired with the stem from flower fusion 4 which I stamped in grey. The splash of green came from some lovely peapod twine from The Twinery. All on a sahara sand card base with a bit of text paper to add interest.

The flower embossed beautifully and is such a lovely deep red. In this photo I tried to catch the light so you can see the embossing better.

I'm also going to put this in the Papercrafts gallery this month - the theme is girlfriends. And one final one, A Passion for Papertrey are having an anything goes challenge.

I think that's it for me today, but call by tomorrow for my CASE study challenge post!

This card appeals to me so much. I'm loving that little spiral notebook page. :-) The flower is gorgeous. The use of the green twine is inspired.

Debby, you really really stamped that flower so well and so clear ... Not a patch of white anywhere!

I really like the striking colour :o)

Ooooh I like the green twine (obviously!) but the whole design is totally fabby of course! Love the way that bold flower 'pops' out from the neutral colours :)

The spiral notebook die appeals to me very much (I need to get that one). Love the text behind it too. the twine with the red flower complement each other. Love the simplicity of your card.
