Bethan's Birthday Card ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Here is the card I created for our beautiful Sister in law, that’s only the second time I’ve written that lol, the awesome Bethan …

Another A5 card, lots of old stash used too
Thankfully it didn't require extra stampage
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Love to Create Challenge #2 Mixed Media Anything Goes
Scrapy Land Challenge #77 Anything Goes
I used Crafters Companion dies

Our Bethan loves all things purple, lol, so I always use purple on cards I create for her. When I started to think about her birthday I had this beautiful stamp around from where I had used it last month. I love, love, love this stamp! I adore colouring big flowers and this one is a whopper so it was much fun and lots of pleasure to colour.

I stamped the image with a pale ink pad and then coloured it with Brusho watercolour crystals and I added golden accents with my Luminarte H2O watercolours. The background was coloured with mixed media fluid and the rest was from various sizes of snippet papers! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
