Painted Background.

Hello All,
Here in Auckland we are still having beautiful days with clear Blue skies allowing the sun to brighten the days, as well as the soul.

 Challenges entering:
Stamping Sensations: Use those Dies and/or Punches.

Most of my creations are made using Dies, so this was an easy Challenge for me.
I had painted up some paper a few months back and this colour combo inspired me to make a Birthday card for my Daughter.




A combination of stamping and embossing creates the texture.
The flower was made from tissue paper which was also painted, stamped and wet embossed in White.

 The metal element with the lace and stitching not only ties the design together but also adds another interest, also included are a few pearls.


Hope you all have a great week.

Smiles:)
Sue

Happiest of Birthday's to your daughter and what a lucky kid she is to have you as her mom. This card is a beautiful combination of the things you love and terrific job marrying all the challenge criteria together. It's like you plopped a piece of a garden straight onto paper. Fantastic!!
hugs,
Quirks
