Thinking of you

I made this card for someone who is currently dealing with a bereavement. I got inspiration for it from a card by MASKerade that I saw on Pinterest. You can find it here. I just love her style. It is something about the simplicity of it that really works.

My card is nothing like as good of course but I thought I would try to replicate the fading ink stripe across the middle and I really love this tree from Lavinia Stamps. I put some colour on the tree with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added a few sequins.

I notice on the photo that there is a black mark on one of the sequins - I have no idea what it is or how it got there. Unfortunately the card is now in the post so I can't re-do the photo, typical!

I am entering this card in the Addicted to CAs One Layer challenge 117. I hope the sequins don't give it too much bling for a CAS card. I did hum and har before adding them. Generally I tend to chicken out of adding such things in fear that I will ruin the card but this time I went for it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today.



I recently bought this Woodware Cosmos flowers stamp and some gold embossing powder so I have used them both to create this card.

I used my zig clean colour real brushes to paint them and added some spectrum noir sparkle to the flower centre and the butterflies. The Thanks sentiment was cut with my scan n cut with gold layered over blue mirror board to give some more shine. It is difficult to get the shine to show in the photos but hopefully you get the drift.

Here is my card:

I am going to enter this card to the following challenges:
