Happy Birthday Lotus Flower


Rushing in at the last minute for a card for this week's Less is More challenge which is a colour challenge. The selection is Black, Metallic plus one.  I've added red for my lotus blossom. 

As the challenge closes very soon, I'm going to pop this in and update with all the details later. 

So see you soon. x

Hi I'm back.

Did you notice that I'd used some new goodies from the Spring/Summer catalogue and also from Sale-a-bration?

There's lots of yummy new goodies to explore and if you spend £45 then you can choose a free item from Sale A Bration.

So here's how I made my card. I started with a Whisper White base and added a mat of brushed gold.  The Whisper White panel was punched at the corners using a circle punch.
I thought the stems from Painted Petals looked a bit like bamboo so I stamped first in Basic Black then again in Versamark and embossed in gold.  The lotus blossom is made up of 3 stamps, each one is numbered and has a marker to make it easier to line up.  I used Cherry Blossom. Real Red and Strawberry Slush.  I'm looking forward to experimenting with different colours.  I attached some Basic Black ribbon to add drama.  Happy Birthday is stamped in Basic Black from Crazy About You.

It's was fun to dust off the old crafty corner and play with my new goodies.

Have a good evening. x
