Congratulations Card

I decided to do another card using the 'Best Mom' stamp set from Altenew with the fun foam die cut to sit behind but slightly off centre so you can see it.

I coloured the flowers using copics yellows and greens.
I then added a bit of 'Wink of Stella' to the flowers to add a bit of sparkle.

I then partially die cut the flower leaving it partly 
attached to the plain card stock.

I then repeated the process with the yellow fun foam and I love how it looks.
In this instance I added the gold mirror cardstock die cut 'Congrats' from Winnie & Walter. A few little sequins and its all finished. Love this effect and cant thank Janet enough for the idea. What a fantastic way to frame your colouring.


I am hoping the card fills the categories as the fun foam adds 
dimension and the sequins and gold mirror cardstock the bling.

thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope I see you again soon.
