Bright and Cheerful

Hello there!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter ... We caught up with my brother and SIL on Saturday and my DH went to the match yesterday leaving me to rest ... To be honest I still wasn't feeling well

For a while I've been making cards using up little bits of left over card and things I have laying around ... little bits of card are great for stamping, sponging etc., or just trying out an idea
Here's one that I made to send to the winner of my blog candy following the CCCB celebrations



I used a stencil with some modelling paste on a scrap of card and when it was dry I sponged the whole thing with different inks


The tiny tag was reclaimed from a shop bought card, and the main card was one I had embossed some time ago and then never used


I like the texture with the plain card sandwiched between and I'm enjoying using up bits of card and experimenting with different techniques

A little birdie told me there's a challenge going on over at the Ribbon Girl 


which is to use yellow/Lemon so I'll be entering this card over there

Ok, I'm off to grab some tea now so have a lovely day and I'll be back tomorrow 

Stay safe

~ Ros ~

Your card is gorgeous; I love what you created with that stencil and modelling paste. It adds depth and the flower almost pops off the card. Lovely!
