Green & A Glimmer of Gold - Daring Cardmakers Challenge


Happy Friday!

At the end of last year I made a personal challenge to be more organised with my workload.  As a consequence, I started making my Mother's Day cards in January, which is early for me.  I have a couple left to do and one for my Mum too, as I sold the card I'd made for her!  Well, someone saw it, wanted it and I couldn't say no.  Plus it's gone to another Mum.  I will make her an even better one........

As it's St Patricks Day, Lythan set the challenge of using green and gold on our cards.  I used an old Stampin Up set which has a favourite sentiment of mine.  I heat embossed the flowers and sentiment in gold then coloured in the flowers using my alcohol markers.  I fussy cut the flowers and arranged them on my card.  I finished by adding glitter washi tape along the bottom, well, it's been a while hasn't it?!  I miss glitter if I don't use it at least once a week on a project........


The sentiment is completed inside the card:


For further inspiration and to enter the challenge please go to the Daring Cardmakers Blog.  I'd love to see what you come up with!

Enjoy the sunshine!
