P1070495Welcome to this week’s Watercooler Wednesday – “All About Occasions” Challenge over at our blog.  Crystal is our lovely host this week.

This week I decided to share a special card I made. The lace on this card came from the invitation envelope.  I love to make birthday cards using these little items to make your  cards just that little bit special.

The floral bouquet is Altnew’s  ‘Just Because’ Stamp Set, which I’ve used quite a few times lately!  The Distress water colouring and grey background paper, again reflect the colours on the invitation. After fussy cutting, the image was added to the background lace with some fun foam and fine blue metallic thread.  I finished it with a touch of Wink of Stella.

The sentiment is from Just Rite – Wedding Nested Sentiments and the background panel was cut with Cutplorations – Wonky Rectangles.

Thanks again for visiting and your very kind comments.

Please be sure to check out the other great cards over on our blog.

I look forward to seeing all the entries this week

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Wow Helen this is truly beautiful. Love the lace and that thread in front of the soft background. Your colouring of those flowers is just gorgeous. Your wonky die adds just a little more to this beauty.
