Thinking of You

Hi everyone, is it really half way through the month already.  Pin and Tack Spark Your Creativity Now #3 for the month of  November is up and running.  There's plenty of time to get your Anything Goes creations entered.

Hope you are all having a good week.

Here's my little bit of inspiration for you.  Now that the colder temperatures are coming I figured a nice sunny  warm coloured card would cheer you up.


The flower vase is from the Art Philosophy cartridge (page 54) cut twice at 3 inches.  I used hide contour to just cut the flowers twice, once in green and once in orange.  I inked the edges of all the layers, even the little flowers.

The vase was embossed with the Cuttlebug and the Sizzix folder Diamond.

The vase and the base layer is pearlised cardstock, as is the base layer for the sentiment stamp, which is from a Recollections sentiments set.

This side view, shows a bit more of the sheen and the depth from adding pop dots to the vase and sentiment layer.

Here is the inside of the card.

The flower stamp, on the inside, is from a set called Thank you For by See D's (an old stamp set from the UK).

A little bit of ribbon and a double bow to finish off.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

{PIN}spirational Challenges - Challenge # 33 (closes 19 Nov)
