Hello and I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday! We have had a beautiful sunny start to Winter here in Melbourne but oh it was chilly this morning!! The good news though, is that thanks to the fact that Autumn was so mild the sales that will start any day now will be massive :-)Also on sale starting today is Stampin Up's new Annual Catalogue - lots of new stamp and die bundles and pretty colours too....so that is most of my savings for the other sales blown now isn't it ;-)
Today's card is for another lovely friend's recent birthday who is partial to the colour blue. I was inspired by this beautiful card on Pinterest and whilst the die's Virginia's used aren't Stampin Up, the design was translatable and was one that I really wanted to try with a few little changes.
So I got out my brayer and the Colourable DSP from last year's Saleabration (there is some similar in the new Catalogue too!) and it grew from there. With the background so full of colour and pattern I kept the rest rather clean apart from a little bling of course. Some vellum circles behind the die cut - and Winked - flowers help them to stand apart. And yes, the larger flower is one of the new In Colours - it's called Flirty Flamingo and is a beautiful soft coral that I think will go with so many other colours :-)
