The Flower Challenge #4 Reminder Blue & Yellow

It's already time for the reminder post for our  challenge
this month at The Flower Challenge

I have managed to make a reminder card, this one has been
so easy as I have really loved this colour combination.

In this instance I have stamped and silver embossed on multimedia
paper which means I could use pencils, paint or copics and in this
instance I chose Zig watercolours. After I had finished
watercolouring I fussy cut the bouquet.

I then used a corner die to just cut out the lower righthand side on the front
of the card. I decided to attach a piece of yellow vellum behind the
panel inside the card.

Looks pretty cool hey!!!! Ok back to description, I added the flowers
so they started at the edge of the cut with a very slight overlay with the leaves
at the edge of the card.

I added the 'Celebrate' sentiment cut from silver card stock
and a few small yellow enamel dots. All done and ready to celebrate
a birthday/ engagement/ wedding or just life.

Thank you so much for coming to visit. Don't forget to hop on over 
to The Flower Challenge and see all the beautiful creations
the Design Team have made. You still have time to get a card or two
made and join in the challenge -go on - you know you want to.

See you soon

You must love to fussy cut, Aileen, because there's a lot of detail on that bouquet. It looks beautiful and I love the die cut in the corner. I have a similar one and forget to use it.
