A Mixed Bunch

Hi Everyone,
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments, they are very much appreciated.
Today I want to share with you a few cards I made a little while ago, but haven’t posted as yet.
First up is this little romantic beauty…

I blended some yellow, orange and red on a piece of white card and stamped a plain square in orange to create a bokeh style background. I then stamped the couple in red and grounded them on a stitched border before adding the sentiment in orange and rounding two of the corners. To add extra interested, I decided to attach slightly tilted to my red base card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts – no designer papers

My next card is another colourful one….

… this time using a brayered background on which I flicked some water before stamping my silhouette stamp in black. Again I rounded some corners and layered on a white base card to finish.
My last card is a little less bright…

A simple wreath with flowers, leaves and greeting. I stamped the circle, die cut the leaves, stamped the sentiment and stamped and punched the flowers before assembling and layering as seen. Adding some gems was the perfect finishing touch.

I am entering this card into to following challenges:

Allsorts – no designer papers

Less is More – Jingle all the way/Christmas
