You can't have a birthday without balloons and Vivien has made us
some wonderful graphics to help us celebrate our First Year
in Blog Land.
This month the challenge couldn't be any easier. Use one of your favourite flower stamps.
I have so many flower stamps,and so many favourites that I decided to go back to one of my originals.
My Her Arts Background Stamp. Its not a big background stamp as you can see here on my card front this is the full size of the panel. I stamped in VersaMark ink and gold embossed this design on vellum. I then used my Zigs without water to colour the flowers.
I put a very small amount of the darkest pink in one spot on the petal then used my palest pink to move the colour around until I was happy with the colour and design.
The photo really doesn't show the beauty of the flower on the vellum as well as it looks IRL. I then die cut some gold mirror card to look like a frame around the flowers, added some enamel dots and a die cut 'fabulous' from another piece of card stock that had been white embossed and watercoloured.
Very simple and very pretty.
Now its time to go check out all the wonderful creations at the Flower Challenge and also see who else has joined us in celebrating our first year anniversary and the wonderful prizes on offer. I am blown away by the different businesses that have gotten behind us and decided to donate a gift or gift voucher for us to use as a prize during our Celebration Month. I can not express to you enough how much we appreciate your generosity.
Next I cant thank the wonderful Design Team enough for their support this year especially Vivien who has taken on the design and maintenance of the blog as well as the running of the team when I fell ill earlier this year. I didnt think I would actually make it to this special day with a post and I am so glad that I have been able to make a card just to be able to thank Vivien, Ruth, Shona, Maria, Cara, TaeEun & Karen for being so very wonderful and supportive through the last six months.
Its just amazing to see how well this Challenge has done in the last 12 months and I thank not only the Design Team but all my Blog friends and all the wonderful people out there who decided to enter their amazing cards in our challenges. We love seeing every one of your cards.
