Close to My Heart Candlelight Garden Thanks Bunches
I made this card for a swap in which I am participating. It was a "roll the dice" swap to determine the basics of your card. I rolled Pink, Mint Green and Pale Yellow for the colors. I rolled for "stamping" image only. I rolled for embellishment washi tape and finally for theme I rolled "Thank You". I was pressed to find a place for the washi although I had plenty of pretty matching colors. I decided to place it behind the sentiment so it would show up on the white.
Last month I participated in the see through swap and still had the acetate handy. I actually used left over pieces from that swap for this swap. I had several remnants that were just perfect for the jars. I did have to use a new sheet for the flowers. But that made it easy to stickle since they were all together and I could set one piece aside to dry.
I used two of the ODBD stitched rectangles to create the frame. I was left with the inside stitched pink mat and another frame outside. I have so many of them, I will have to design cards using those pieces now.
My flowers were inspired by a card I received in the see through swap last month. This was made by Marcy, she doesn't have a blog or I would link it. I have been swapping with her for a least a year and she does great work!
Here are my flowers. Since my colors were pastels, I didn't go with the same sunflower but hers is lovely.
I am just in love with my new word dies, I purchased some Sizzix and some Impression Obsession sets. I love them all!
