A Scrapbook Boutique Blog Challenge

I made this card for the Scrapbook Boutique blog January Challenge which is to create a project using yellow, green and white and the photo as your inspiration. Details can be found HERE

I used off-cuts from some of the cards I've been making lately, including:
  • yellow plaid patterned paper from a free 6x6" We R Memory Keepers paper stack
  • Lime green, white and mid-green cardstock
  • Sizzix/Hero Arts Framelits Floral dies and stamp set
  • Kaisercraft Brown ink pad and light green rhinestones
  • Martha Stewart Meyer Lemon ink pad
  • VersaColor Bamboo ink pad
  • Staedtler Aquarell coloured pencils
  • Annabelle Stamps Cuts by Design Borders 1
  • Banana Custard Smooch
I love the border die-cut, especially highlighted with the rhinestones; and I think I finally got the flower right. Though my colouring is nowhere near as good as Therese Calvird's Pretty Posies that are published in the latest Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft (Vol 19 No 2) that came in the post today. Therese is just wonderful with her colouring on these cards - the images look like they've been professionally printed. Therese has contributed quite a few cards in this issue, you should check it out.

I am also going to submit this card in the Annabelle Stamps blog as well, as this week's colours are somewhat similar. The darker green cardstock and the ink I used on the stamp both could be regarded as Artichoke. Details can be found HERE.

Well, bye for now,

    Wow, I really love this, that fancy border die really caught my eye.
