Enough of that, here is the sketch for this week's challenge
You can use any shape without right angles, so I went with a circle and die cut an aperture. I embossed another piece of card and layered it over the top and stamped the sentiment from Happiest Birthday Wishes in the corner. I have also taken the liberty of rotating the sketch, you'll see why!
The flowers are all stamped from Jars of Love and Stippled Blossoms using the two step stamping method. I've used Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum, because they were already out on my crafting table and added some Tangelo Twist to the mix.
The surprise is inside, where I have stamped a jar, water coloured some water inside and added a few stamped stems. I also added the stamped band and 'twine'. This keeps the card very CAS on the front, with lots of white space.
Even these lovely new stamps have not changed my mind about giving up card making. I will still be crafting in some way, I always have, and I do still intend to make cards for family and friends, and Christmas, of course. It's been a ball, thanks for checking in to my blog now and then,and Happy Crafting!
