The Card Concept

Hello there ...
We actually have sunshine and warm weather today (shhh.... don't want to scare it away)

Now, green and white is way out of my comfort zone when card making ... However, this week The Card Concept features just that on the challenge photo


So I challenge myself to come up with something... Well, that frosting on the cake said embossing paste to me and the paper trays - vellum...


The colour of the cake was not lost on me ... It's in the sequins and to get the 'straw' effect I sponged ink on a piece of CS through a template I made using the word window punch from Stamping Up


My dilemma once again is what style do I class this as?
I am going with  Mixed Media simply because of the stencilling ... I guess you will advise me if I'm wrong ... 


Either way this challenge forced me out of my comfort zone Lol!

On another note I am pleased to say that when I was at the hospital on Tuesday, my friend was a lot better ... She was able to talk a little too. She's a long way from recovered but at least on the right road.

I am working at the Thursday Club tonight and have prepared 20+ owl note books for them to assemble and 20+ cards ... Hard work but so worth it to see them have fun.

Enjoy your day
