Good Morning Ladies,
Another Challenge card from me today this one was made with the same stamp set as I used on the Yellow card yesterday, although it looks quite different. I chose the colours Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather, it is actually the first time that I have stamped with this ink properly and I love it.
I made a card base out of Highland Heather card and added a matt of Gorgeous Grape and then stamped the middle sized flourish from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp set randomly all over a piece of Whisper White card, which I then divided into three equal strips and set them down with a slight gap.
I stamped my sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink onto Whisper white card and die cut with a Layering Oval die, I cut a scalloped mat out of the same colour card.
To finish my card I added a piece of Gorgeous Grape striped ribbon and ties a knot, I topped that with a Petite Petals flower that I stamped in Gorgeous Grape onto Highland Heather card, punched it out and added some Old Olive foliage behind. A few sparkles placed here and there to add the final finishing touches.
I also made a matching Envelope using the Envelope punch board, I used Whisper White card and the same stamp as I used on the card. I think it looks so nice having a 'matching' envelope.
Sue came yesterday which really made my day, I made us some fresh Leek & potato soup and warmed some bread. After that we both got straight down to some crafting. I made todays card and Sue made a fantastic 'man card ' !! Before we knew it it was 5.30 and Paul was home.
I have a full day in craft room today, as I have a long list of projects to finish.
I hope you have a lovely day ladies ,
Brenda you will be in my thoughts all day xx
Love and hugs to all of you,
