Thanks a Million

I had a fun day today.  My boys came home after a week at their grandparents and my mum, who brought them home, stayed to make some cards with me.  This card was one I was part-way through when she arrived and I wasn't happy with it, so left it for a few hours and just finished it off now.

This card uses this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I had the idea to sponge a panel using Daffodil Delight; Calypso Coral and Old Olive but as I was sponging, I bent the cardstock and consequently got a line right across the middle.  To "fix" my mistake I screwed up the whole panel then sponged over the top to make the marks look deliberate!

I used the Stippled Blossoms set again for my main image and the Honeycomb EF to give some interest to the Vanilla background.

Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Stippled Blossoms; Word Play
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla; Calypso Coral
Ink:  Calypso Coral; Daffodil Delight; Old Olive
Accessories:  Old Olive marker; Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch; Honeycomb EF; Sponges

Hello Karren!

Your card looks absolutely gorgeous, I love this "crushed" effekt on the yellow/green background!

Nice colours!

Have a nice weekende :-)
Greets, Karola

Now THIS is gorgilious, Karren! I love how your "accident" turned your panel into a stunning piece of art. I'll bet that would be perfect on your card even without the sweet flower on top!!

Those beautiful bright colours really pop against the vanilla background, Karren - stunning! Nice 'save' with the sponged panel!
