Season's Greetings

I am really enjoying creating Christmas cards at the moment and have another for you today. This time I pulled out my SSS Ring Wreath and created a rainbow wreath...

Being a big pink/gold fan this is a mood board right up my alley lol.

Happy World Card Making Day

I'm so delighted that I had a chance to create a card today - in celebration of WCMD. I feel so blessed to have this hobbie that brings me so much joy - not only when I'm creating the card but when I'm giving it to someone special as well. Not to mention the beautiful crafty friends that I have made along the way who are just as crazy about paper crafting as I am. 

Today I was smiling from ear to ear playing with Altenew's newest Build-A-Flower set - the Rose. Oh.My.It.Is.Glorious! My desk was covered in inks as I experimented with a variety of colour combos. Here's my card...

Sending Smiles Angled

On the pink rose I used mainly Altenew Inks (Frosty Pink/Pink Diamond/Pinkalicious/Rubellite/Razzleberry and Distress Seedless Preserves in the centre) The yellow rose was a real combination of brands (MFT Insulation Pink and Orange Fizz/Memento Dandelion, Tangelo, Potter's Clay and Rich Cocoa) For the leaves I used Altenew's Bamboo/Parrot/Olive and Moss inks.

The sentiment in Kristina Werner's gorgeous handwriting is from Simon Says Stamp's Handlettered Encouragement Set.

Sending Smiles CU

A smattering of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins was the finishing touch. Think I'll link this up in the SSS WCMD Gallery :-)

I hope you have some fun creative time today.

See you again on Tuesday for the October Challenge for Scrapbook Boutique.
