Wishing you Happiness

I made this card to send to Cat for the August Card Chain Challenge (I can post the card as Cat has emailed to say she's received it).  I have chosen the Colour Option (Sunshine, Sea Green & Flamingo) and the Theme Option (Friendship).

I cut a piece of card slightly smaller than my card blank, before stamping and embossing the flower and sentiment.  This panel was then attached to the card blank.  I also stamped the leaves onto snippets of green paper, these were fussy cut and attached to the card.  I added Card Candi to the larger circles and coloured the smaller ones with a yellow Promarker and Glossy Accents.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Woodware 'Bubble Bloom - Clarissa' and Clearly Besotted 'Dandelion Dreams' stamps
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Card candi
     Glossy Accents
     White matt card
     Snippets of sea green paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Feminine      
     Alphabet Challenge 'K for Kind Thoughts'

This is the lovely card I received from Dee in Kenya, who also included two bead medallions which are handmade by the Maasai women.

This bubble flower looks great Kath and love the way you have coloured the small one with Promarker and added the gloss so it matches in with the larger card candi. A really pretty card. x
