Hi to Stampin' Up!'s Bright Blossoms

Oh my have you seen the stunning colour inspiration photo over at Less is More?  It's very haunting.  

So the colours are Green and Rust.  I've used Cajun Craze and Garden Green. 

I've combined this challenge with the Card Swap card for this month which is to have a sentiment as the focal point.  I'd normally only put my cards up on my blog once I know it's definitely been received but I'm always at the last minute with this group that I want to get it posted in both ways! 

I started with cutting out Hello using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies.  But the O wouldn't fit!  I don't think a card with the remaining letters would have been very nice???....  So I've gone with Hi.  I layered the letters to give a shadow effect and added some faux stitching with a White Gel pen as highlights.  This was attached to a Naturals White card stock panel. 

The blossom branch from Bright Blossoms was inked up using Stampin' Write Markers in the same colours.  Some were stamped without reinking.  I added a little highlights to the  blossom berries in the foreground with the White Gel pen.  To give the added glow of warmth  I sponged some Cajun Craze around one edge.  

The naturals panel is popped up on Dimensionals. 

Once I had stamped my design it struck me that it would work well for a Christmas card too.  Perhaps with some added glitter but I'm not sure HO would work on it's own.  Just doesn't sound right so perhaps JOY or NOEL!!  

This card is going to be winging it's way to my card swap Lady tomorrow and I hope she doesn't see it here first but I'm sure she is too busy just now! 

 It's all go here.  I came home yesterday to find my son had been trying to do a trick with his skateboard and failed.  Bashed his nose and lip.  Skint, bruised and swollen.  He said he had managed to do it before and this time decided to film it on his phone.  So lucky me got to see my son smack his face off the paving stones!  Ouch!!! 

I hope you aren't too busy and take time out to visit your crafty space.  xx
