Floral Card & A Christmas Card

I have been sharing all my cards on Instagram and not worrying about doing blog posts mainly as its much quicker but also as I felt with the changes with Blogger and what people are doing that many go to Instagram or Facebook rather than blogs.
But I just couldn't resist sharing this card then decided to add another so I am going to see if I can keep up with the blog and if visits and comments warrant it I will continue.

This stunning floral image is another of Emily Midgett's stunning one off releases.
I think I can honestly say it's my favourite as I love the tropical blooms. Check out Emily's blog
she draws for a number of different Card Supply companies like Honey Bee Stamps and Pinkfresh.

She also does a one off release each month that includes different florals done for Copic &/or Watercolour.

Now to my card I have Copic Coloured the flowers then added a little bit of sparkle with Wink of Stella.
I cut the panel with a die from  'The Greetery' which I love as they include three different sizes and two different styles. Anyway I then added a layer of fun foam cut with the same die to add a little hight to the piece before adding to the card.
Finishes off with a die cut sentiment 'with love' and a little silver glitter paper heart.

the colours for the flowers are
the main flower : R05  R02  R12  R01  YR0000
smaller flowers : V06  V05  RV55  RV52
Big leaves : BG09  BG57  BG 53
smaller green leaves:  YG17  YG05  YG01
Yellow centres Y17 Y02  Y11

Now we have this super fast Christmas card.
A layer of vellum with Rose Gold Foil dots attached then added
a sweet puppy from  a MFT stamp set called Happy Pawlings, 
currently out of stock but they always restock quickly.

Puppy is coloured with Copics but not recently so I cant tell you the colours used.
I then added this brilliant sentiment that is from a business that is no longer in business
sadly. Its a fine wood cut and I have coloured it with Copics to give a monochrome look.

I wasn't sure if the paper was too distracting for the sentiment but I was happy with it,
it meant another card finished for Christmas so thats it.

On the house renovations, we get the kitchen bench on Tuesday so that will signal the end of all renovations inside the house ( cheers, party poppers, streamers and balloons here) and John has already turned his mind to the backyard and fixing issues out there. It is never ending, but I am one very happy little Vegemite, because everything I ever wanted to do in the house has been achieved and I love it.

  So thank you for coming to visit and I hope to see you again in a couple of days with The Flower Challenge Blogs new challenge for this month. 

Also its our Anniversary...... 5 years. 5 amazing years of the Flower Challenge and we have prizes galore so thats two reasons to join us. 

One as its our Anniversary and Two because there are prizes, lots of prizes.
